Alankrita Shrivastava‘s next is all set to go on floors soon. Produced under the Balaji Telefilms banner, the makers recently announced that the woman centric drama will star two of the biggest female names today, when it comes to power packed performances.

Bhumi Pednekar and Konkona Sen Sharma are going to star in the film together which is a village based drama. The two actors play two rebellious sisters at war with a few notions and the system. However, according to our exclusive sources, the makers were earlier planning the film with Bhumi and Vidya, but the ‘Tumhari Sulu’ actress decided to opt out of the film.

Vidya was offered the film earlier this year but after a round of narrations and script readings, she told the team that she won’t be able to do the film. Now if you wonder what her reason was? Well, one hears, that when she realised that she plays the older character, she took the call to opt out of the film.

Well, apparently Vidya is still not ready to play badi behen to anyone.

On the work front, Vidya will reportedly be seen opposite Akshay Kumar in a first ever Bollywood space film. The film will also star Nimrat Kaur and will be jointly produced by R. Balki, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Akshay Kumar. However, with no official announcement made about this project, all we can do is wait and watch.
