Actress Vidya Balan, who will be seen portraying Kamala Das, says the Indian-English writer was very progressive and she agreed to do this biopic because she wants to know her as a person.

“Kamala was very progressive, she was very strong. I loved the script (of the film) the minute I read it. I agreed to do this biopic because I want to know her as a person. She is a very unique person and I just want to know her better,” Vidya said.

The actress, who has delivered impressive performances in films like “The Dirty Picture” and “Kahaani”, says she doesn’t pay heed to people’s opinion about her as it affects her.


“I don’t read anything about myself. I don’t base my life on that. If I have to base it on something, I would base it on positive things,” the National Award winner said.

Vidya, who dabbles in multiple genres of cinema, believes people are ready for all kinds of films.

“People had said that after a point, masala films will not work, but even today masala films are working. There will be new kind of films coming out everyday.”
