Vidya not romancing with Vivek

Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has refused any romancing link with Vivek Oberoi. Vivek has not done any movie since the disastrous Mission Istanbul last year.

But Vidya, who’s been linked to almost every actor that she has worked with from Sanjay Dutt and John Abraham to Shahid Kapoor, is not having any of this.

Bollywood is half times too many for people to fall in love or get hooked onto each other. But Vidya is not buying.

Vidya is working with Vivek, so Vidya’s anxious to nip the romance rumour in the bud. “I have met Vivek some one-and-a-half times only,” said Vidya.

At the same time, the actress claimed that she’s not in love with him. “It’s just a rumour,” the actress added.

नई दिल्ली। विद्या बालन इन दिनों कार चलाना सीख रही हैं। ड्राइविंग से कोसों दूर भागने वाली बॉलीवुड अभिनेत्री विद्या बालन को इन दिनों मजबूरन इसे सीखना पड़ रहा है।

विद्या को बॉलीवुड निर्देशक विशाल भारद्वाज की फिल्म इश्किया में अपने किरदार को जीवंत बनाने के लिए ऐसा करना पड़ रहा है। विशाल चाहते हैं कि उनकी फिल्म के कलाकार परदे पर असली कमाल दिखाएं।

फिल्म ओंकारा में अभिनेता सैफ अली खान का उत्तर भारतीय उच्चारण भी विशाल की जिद की देन थी।

इन दिनों विद्या विशाल का आभार जताते नहीं थक रहीं हैं, क्योंकि विशाल ने उनके मन से बहुत बड़ा डर निकाल दिया है।

अब उम्मीद की जा रही है विद्या जल्दी ही कार चलाना सीख लेंगी।

Vidya signs a film with John

Technorati Profile
Whether Bipasha Basu approves of it or not is yet to be seen. But, Vidya Balan has signed a David Dhawan comedy, Hook Ya Crook with Bips’s boyfriend John Abraham.

It seems Vidya has developed an affinity towards comedies. While Vishal Bhardwaj’s Ishqya will mark Vidya’s entry in the comedy genre , Hook Ya Crook will be her second.

In Ishqya , Vidya plays up the uncle (Naseeruddin Shah) against his nephew, Arshad Warsi. Hook Ya Crook was to earlier star Telugu star Siddharth with Amrita Rao. But they were dropped and Vidya and John came on board.

After Salaam-e-Ishq , Vidya drops her sedate saree-clad image again for Hook ... Says David, “I was recently watching Vidya in Parineeta and I think she is one of the most beautiful girls we’ve had in the industry. Just working with her would be a pleasure. She has such lovely eyes and a truly Indian face.”
