Lucky to see Vidya Balan act: Pallavi Sharda

Thursday, February 16, 2017

Bollywood actress Pallavi Sharda wasn't intimidated while working with Vidya Balan in the upcoming film 'Begum Jaan' and says she observed the 'Kahaani' star a lot on sets.

The historical drama film is directed by Srijit Mukherji and is an adaptation of his 2015 Bengali film 'Rajkahini'.

"Vidya is a very kind and empathetic human. She played her character to its fullest potential, which in itself has a very strong edge. When she was in character it was hard not to succumb to the aura and stature of Begum. I was very lucky to be on set and observe her at work," said Pallavi.

In the film, Balan plays the role of a brothel's madam during the partition of India in 1947.

Pallavi, who has appeared in films like 'My Name is Khan', 'Hawaizaada' and the Oscar-nominated 'Lion', says so far her role in 'Begum Jaan' was her most challenging one.

"My role as 'Gulabo' was one of the most difficult I have played. The subject matter and the journey of the character were gritty and hard-hitting. I can't reveal much about it at this stage, but I am very lucky to have worked with Srijit in fulfilling the vision for Gulabo and a film which is centred around a strong female-oriented story," she added.

The 28-year-old actress is also doing a travel show for Discovery channel, helmed by 'Bank Chor' director Vivek Mathur.

"The project interested me as the director narrated a wonderful script for me which follows my passion for dance and movement on a road trip through Asia. It was incredible to have driven myself through the mountains of the northeast, through to Myanmar and on to Thailand, dancing against ever-changing and awe-inspiring natural backdrops," said Pallavi.

While the show is scheduled to air in late March, Pallavi is also gearing up for her first music video appearance with a new vocalist called Pratyul.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The way you handle an assignment on hand is of importance for your future. Spare no expenses to get work done as there are monetary gains indicated. Change of house or promotion at work is likely. Juniors may have to undergo further training, in preparation for an important position. Work is in the fast forward mode but your love life takes a backseat. Crying on the shoulder of a colleague could be risky more so if the two of you are thrown together constantly.
