“Vidya Balan will have a special role in the drama. It’s more like a cameo. But it’s not yet known what she will be playing or whose story she might be a part of. Apart from these, the makers also wanted an actor to be the narrator for all the stories and then their unison. So it can be that, too, but the makers are currently tight-lipped about everything,” reveals the source.

The source goes on to add that Balan will commence shooting for her part soon. “Vidya and Anurag’s friendship goes back a long way. They have known each other for years and when Dada called Vidya for the role, she immediately gave her nod. She didn’t even bat an eyelid before saying yes to him. They plan to shoot her portions in the coming few days.”
