Vidya Balan is a thorough professional, says the director of ‘Begum Jaan’
After her successful stint in ‘TE3N’, Vidya Balan is back on her toes shooting for her next called ‘Begum Jaan’. Directed by Srijit Mukherji, the film is a remake of Bengali film ‘Rajkahini’. The camera has been set rolling and the team of ‘Begum Jaan’ has been sweating it out in Jharkand, shooting for ‘Begum Jaan’. But unfortunately, while shooting the climax scene of the film, Vidya suffered an uncomfortable situation because of the strong smell of gun powder.
As per reports, the film has a backdrop of India-Pakistan partition and hence, there’s too much usage of guns. So while shooting the climax scene Vidya got really uncomfortable due to the strong stench of gun powder. Though there was an ambulance parked right outside the shooting scene but, thankfully Vidya did not suffer any health issue. She was back on her toes within a few minutes and was applauded for being a thorough professional.
Talking about the same, director Srijit was quoted saying, “It is such a pleasure to work with Vidya. She is a thorough professional. Though one could see she was uncomfortable and the production called the doctor, she was back to shooting in 5 minutes.”
Well, knowing Vidya, this is not surprising! We have heard stories of Vidya being a thorough professional and never had any director complaining about her!
More power to you lady!
