Vidya Balan: Not to laugh in the scene was a big challenge for me

Bollywood actress Vidya Balan who is all prepped up for her forthcoming release Tumhari Sulu, said that she has given her 200 per cent in the film and also mentioned that the movie has the best script.

At the trailer launch of the movie, Vidya said,”It was exceptional experience working with (director) Suresh Triveni. The day he narrated me the whole script, it was 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 can make the film better, so everyone gave 200 percent from the heart, it was tiring at times, but at the end, there was immense satisfaction.”

Adding further she spoke about the fun that she had in playing the funny character in the film, she said, “I definitely know that 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.”

Talking about being appointed as the member of the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC), Vidya said, “I am enjoying 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, we see the film. So I have seen very few films, which is good news.”

Being a comedy movie, Vidya was asked to not laugh while playing the character. Divulging about how challenging it was to control laughter, Vidya said, “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.”

Produced under the banner of T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment, Tumhari Sulu is directed by Suresh Triveni. Apart from Vidya Balan, Tumhari Sulu also stars Manav Kaul, Neha Dhupia and RJ Malishka in lead roles. The film is scheduled to release on November 17.
