Vidya Balan reveals Akshay Kumar’s son Aarav was scared of Manjulika from ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’
Vidya Balan‘s role of Manjulika in ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ earned her a lot of appreciation. Her transition from Avni to Manjulika was lauded by critics and audiences alike. The stellar performance she gave is still etched in our memory. As reported by India Today, in a recent interview, Vidya revealed that Akshay’s son Aarav was scared of her performance as Manjulika for years.
During the interview where Akshay was also present, he said that his son Aarav calls her Manjulika. Then Vidya said, “Twinkle (Khanna) had told me this once. Aarav was playing the song and dancing to it. In between, he remembered me and went running to her because he was scared.”
She also said of feeling amazing that some people don’t even know her name but know her as Manjulika. She was once quoted by IANS as saying, “I remember I wasn’t nominated for my performance in Bhool Bhulaiyaa at the award ceremonies. At that time, I really felt sad because everybody was saying that I had performed really well in the film, but no one nominated me for that film. I remember I was bit shocked after that but I think it’s a part of life.”
Directed by Priyadarshan, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ received a positive response at the box office. Now, reports are doing the rounds that Kartik Aaryan is being considered for its sequel. Earlier Mumbai Mirror quoted a source saying, “While the makers have locked the idea, the script is still to be finalised. But the idea was shared with Kartik who liked it and has agreed to take the franchise forward with the story set in a metropolis.”
Coming back to Akshay and Vidya, both are gearing up for their upcoming movie ‘Mission Mangal’ that is slated to hit the screens on August 15.
