Atul Kasbekar also tweeted about the film and revealed more about Vidya Balan’s role in Tumhari Sulu. As Sulu, Vidya will be seen playing a late night love chat show host on a radio channel.
Vidya Balan has handled the mike before while playing an RJ in Rajkumar Hirani’s Munnabhai MBBS. Her role was much loved and her unique andaaz of saying, “Goodmorning Mumbai” was an instant hit with the audience.
Now, as a love chat RJ, we wonder what Vidya has in store for us. But we are sure that with her seductive voice, she will do justice to the role.
Meanwhile, her film Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh, directed by Sujoy Ghosh is all set to release this Friday (December 2, 2016). Sujoy Ghosh is back with a brand new direction after a sabbatical of four years. Considering the success of their last venture Kahaani, hopes are high with this one as well. This franchise will see Vidya Balan trapped in a kidnap-murder case. The Dirty Picture actress will be seen playing a school teacher who is accused of kidnapping and murdering her own daughter. Arjun Rampal will play an investigating cop.
