'Gave 200% for Tumhari Sulu'

Published: 15th October 2017

Vidya Balan, who is all geared up for her upcoming Tumhari Sulu, says that she has given her 200 per cent to the film and hails it as one of the best scripts she's come across in a long time. "It was an exceptional experience working with (director) Suresh Triveni. It is one of the best scripts I've heard in the longest time."

But during the filming, a lot of changes happened. "We all thought we could make the film better, so everyone gave 200 per cent from the heart, it was tiring at times, but in the end, there was immense satisfaction," says Vidya, who was present at the trailer launch of the film on Saturday.

Vidya is known for hard-hitting and intense roles, but with Tumhari Sulu, she will be seen in a whole new funny and full-of life avatar, which, according to her, is amazing. "I've not had fun on the screen for a while. I've been playing very intense and heavy characters, and after a long time I got to play this character, who is always smiling, laughing and making people laugh. I do think it is precious to make people smile and laugh, and if a film is able to do that, it is amazing. I was definitely missing that in my life," she says.

The actress, who is one of the board members of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), says she is enjoying her new role. "I enjoy being a board member. A lot of people don't know what it means to be a board member. We don't watch all the films. Only when there is a problem, do we see the film. So I have seen very few films, which is good news," she says.

Tumhari Sulu is about a middle-class woman, who takes up a job as a late night radio jockey. The film is hilarious with its depiction of the lighter and funny undertones of life. Vidya admits that, for her, the requirement not to laugh on sets was a big challenge. "When I start laughing, it becomes really difficult to control myself, I mean there are situations in the film, which are so funny, so just not to laugh in the scene was a big challenge for me."

Helmed by Triveni, Tumhari Sulu is produced under the T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment banners. The movie, which also stars Manav Kaul, Neha Dhupia and RJ Malishka in lead roles, is slated for a November 17 release.
