Tumhari Sulu will be very relatable: Vidya Balan
The actress, who plays Sulochana aka Sulu, a middle-class woman becomes an RJ, says playing different characters in different films is what completes an actor
Actress Vidya Balan who will be seen next in Tumhari Sulu, she doesn't want to repeat herself as an actor. "I am very grateful that I have got opportunities to play different characters in each of my films. I feel that's the true definition of being an actor."
She says no filmmaker has imagined her in a character like the one in this Suresh Triveni directorial. "All filmmakers have offered me intense and serious characters, but he just thought about me in a completely different way."
Talking about her character and the film, the actress says, "The way Suresh Triveni has written the film, I feel anybody can relate to it. I am glad that I am playing a normal middle-class woman in this film because I am still middle class by heart. My character in the film doesn't judge anyone and not herself as well."
In Tumhari Sulu, Vidya plays Sulochana aka Sulu, who becomes a night radio jockey in Mumbai. She is sure that her character will be relatable to every middle-class woman who has never worked outside before. "Everyone has their dreams and aspirations. And when you watch a film like this where a woman who has no past experience of becoming an RJ achieves her goal, then people would also think that if she can do it, why not us."
