Vidya Balan, Marathi, Ekk Albela

Vidya had insisted its makers to include famous song 'Shaam Dhale Khidki Tale' from ‘Albela’ in it

New Delhi: The versatile actress of Bollywood, Vidya Balan is all set to make her Marathi debut with the movie ‘Ekk Albela’ in which she is alleged to play the role of late actress, Geeta Bali.  The ‘Kahaani’ star says that she gets attracted to real life stories.

However Vidya denied the reports that ‘Ekk Albela’ is a biopic of Geeta Bali saying that, “This is not a biopic on Geeta ji (Geeta Bali). I won’t claim to even have made a biopic. You don’t see all shades of her; you will see Geeta ji the star and see me recreating her songs”

The Dirty Picture actress said, "I do get drawn to real life stories and which is why I liked the Bhagwan Dada biopic"

The actress is open to do a biopic on Bali but she has to put a lot of efforts on her looks.

Vidya said, "In case of Silk Smitha in The Dirty Picture, I had to use my imagination and to play Geeta ji (Geeta Bali) I had to watch her videos," She even added,"I have tried to imbibe some mannerisms of her (Geeta Bali) in the dancing portions specially. I think its way easier if you don’t know the person. When you know the person you don’t know what all to pick up.”

In ‘Ekk Albela’, Vidya had insisted its makers to include singer Lata Mangeshkar’s famous song Shaam Dhale Khidki Tale from ‘Albela’ in it.

While performing the same song, Vidya seemed to be nervous on the sets.

"She (Geeta Bali) played with her eyes, face, hands, her fingers spoke so much, and she used her wrist beautifully. Most of the shots are close up, so what I realised is that the smile, face all of that was something that charmed," she said.

"So I wasn’t nervous about dance but expressions are form of dance. I focused on that. The choreographer was also saying that no Vidya Balan, just Geeta Bali," she added.
