Yet another real-life character gets modified in reel just for the actress
She may not have impressed the fashionistas too much with her personal style, but Vidya Balan has managed to wow the people who matter in her professional life.
How else can you explain B-Town's creative lot actually modifying real-life characters in reel to suit her image.
In Sanjay Gupta's Shootout at Wadala, Vidya is being wooed to essay the role of gangster Manya Surve's girlfriend.
While in reality the late don's moll is a widow and mother of two, her character in the movie will now not have any kids. Her widowhood status will also not be given any importance.
Explains Gupta, "We didn't want to stress too much on Surve's girl's past.
The fact that she was married at some point in her life before she met him is of no consequence to the story. We'll barely mention it in passing. And yes, Survey's girl will have no children in my film."
With the character suitably altered, one hopes that Vidya will finally agree to come on board to do her second biographical character in a row after playing Silk Smitha in Dirty Picture.
Incidentally, this role too was substantially altered for Vidya's sake.
