Mumbai: Actress Vidya Balan has finished almost 80 per cent of the shooting of her next film 'Ghanchakkar', and the movie's director, Rajkumar Gupta, can only sing praises for her.
Gupta earlier directed Vidya in 'No One Killed Jessica'. "It's a pleasure to work with Vidya again. Vidya is one of the best actresses we have. In 'Ghanchakkar', Vidya plays a character that she has not explored before. She is a brilliant actress and a wonderful human being. She simplifies everybody's job," Gupta told IANS.
'Ghanchakkar' is a comedy movie, featuring Emraan Hashmi opposite Vidya. Emraan plays an ex-conman. Giving out a few details of the movie, Gupta said: "Vidya plays a housewife in the film. She is one actress who can pull off any role. 'Ghanchakkar' is a quirky comedy. We have finished 80 per cent of the shooting. We have been shooting in Mumbai and a major portion of it was shot in Chembur."
The movie is slated to release June 21, 2013. Gupta says viewers must watch out the film for Emraan and Vidya's chemistry. "I only visualised Vidya and Emraan for this film ever since we started scripting. It's a very unusual pairing and both of them are doing a fabulous job. Their chemistry is looking awesome on screen," said Gupta.
The movie is Gupta's third film in a row with UTV Motion Pictures after 'Aamir' and 'No One Killed Jessica'. The film has music by composer Amit Trivedi, with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
