Vidya Balan is all set to enter the Marathi Film Industry. The actress will play the role of renowned yesteryear Bollywood actress Geeta Bali in the upcoming Marathi film ‘Ek Albela’.
‘Ek Albela’ traces the journey of Bhagwan Dada’s film career as an actor and director and Vidya’s role will be credited as a special appearance. For the ones who are unaware, Bhagwan Dada faced a lot of obstacles while making the musical Albela which had Geeta Bali in the lead. Director of the film, Shekhar Sartandel also added that Vidya will not be required to speak in Marathi since Geeta Bali was from the Hindi film industry. Vidya Balan too expressed her happiness over this and exclaimed that it is an honour to play the effervescent Geeta Bali on screen.
This film stars Mangesh Desai as Bhagwan Dada. The story and screenplay is written by Shekhar Sartandel and Amol Shetge and produced by Kimaya Motion Pictures.
Shekhar Sartandal has already started shooting with the actress and the filmmaker mentioned that he will require another few days to shoot with Vidya Balan.
