“If I had played this character when I was 25 or 26 years old then there wouldn’t have been the relatability factor. But over the years I have begun to enjoy with children, I get along with them, I bond well with them. I love children. My sister has twins, a boy and a girl, they are five years old. This does tickle the maternal bond,” Vidya said.

Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh is the second installment of the 2012 suspense thriller franchise Kahaani, directed by Ghosh.
