Good morning to good night for Vidya Balan

While she’s currently busy promoting Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh, Vidya Balan has green-lit her next, ‘Tumhari Sulu’, a comedy-drama in which she will be playing a fun and feisty late-night Radio Jockey (RJ) called Sulochana aka Sulu who hosts a semi-adult show. The film marks the directorial debut of adman Suresh Triveni who is known for directing the India-Pakistan ‘Mauka Mauka’ commercial that aired during ICC World Cup 2015. “This gem of a script will make you cheer and laugh. The character of Sulu is fun, happy-go-lucky but grounded, everything that Vidya is even in real life,” confirmed Atul Kasbekar, whose Ellipsis Entertainment is jointly producing the film with T-series. Vidya has earlier played a radio jockey in Rajkumar Hirani’s 2006 comedy drama ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ that featured Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi in the lead. The 38-year-old actress recently wrapped up work on ‘Begum Jaan’, the Hindi adaptation of National Award-winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji’s Bengali film, Rajkahini, and will soon start shooting for the Kamala Das biopic which is to be directed by Malayalam filmmaker Kamal.  Vidya is expected to start work on ‘Tumhari Sulu’ in April. “Today’s evolved audiences want content that is real and relatable. ‘Tumhari Sulu’ is a lovely, heart-warming story tailor-made for Vidya and we are proud to produce it,” says Bhushan Kumar.
