Vidya Balan plays the character of 'Durga Rani Singh' in 'Kahaani 2'
'Kahaani 2' is a suspense-thriller Bollywood film directed by Sujoy Ghosh and produced by Ghosh and Jayantilal Gada
Featuring Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal in lead roles, the film is a sequel to the 2012 film 'Kahaani'
Vidya Balan, who also featured in the 2012 film 'Kahaani', will be essaying a 36-year-old woman wanted for kidnapping and murder in the second installment of the suspense thriller
'Kahaani 2' is slated to release on December 2
'Kahaani 2' was earlier slated to clash at the box office with SRK-Alia starrer 'Dear Zindagi' on November 25. The release date, however, was shifted to December 2 to avoid the clash
"Before the trailer came out, people thought it was a sequel. But it has nothing to do with the previous story. This one is about a woman from Kalimpong, who is cut off from the world, and because of certain situations, has to come back," Vidya Balan told mid-day in an earlier interview
"What's compelling about this movie is the story, and it's the way it's been told, which you have to watch it for. Sujoy told me to forget about the first Kahaani, and I thought that was a very self-assured thing to say, because even four years later, people talk about Kahaani and how it shocked them. But, when people saw this trailer, they forgot about it, and are now responding to this story," says Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan's upcoming projects, 'Begum Jaan' (where she plays the madam of a brothel during Partition) and 'Aami' (a biopic on the legendary poet), see her doing what few actresses do - carry the movie through
Watching Netflix is among Vidya Balan's favourite habits
"Siddharth and I are on the last two episodes of The Affair, and then I plan to start watching Marcella and The Crown. It's a good life," said Vidya Balan
