He says that Vidya was the first and last choice for the role. Gupta has earlier worked with Vdiya in ‘No One Killed Jessica’. And he is the only director whom Vidya is working for the second time.
“While doing ‘No One Killed Jessica’, I explored a different side of Vidya. She was on my mind while I developed the script for ‘Ghanchakkar’. Thankfully, she agreed to do the role,” reveals Gupta.
Vidya was bit unconvinced about her role but the director convinced her and she agreed after much pressing. He says, “But our admiration for each other helped me make her understand how much I’m looking forward to her playing the character, which is why she finally agreed to do the film.”
These days Vidya and Gupta both are working on detailing the behaviorism of Vidya in the movie. “We are working on her look and mannerisms. It will take some time to get them to fit the image I’ve conceived,” tells Gupta.
Even Emraan Hashmi will have a different look in the film. “I don’t claim that this will break Emraan’s image, but it will show him in a different light for sure,” exclaimed Rajkumar.
