I haven’t figured out comedy yet: Vidya Balan

Mumbai, June 8 (IANS) Actress Vidya Balan, whose two comedy films “Ghanchakkar” and “Shaadi Ke Side Effects” turned out to be damp squibs at the box office, says she is more comfortable with intense roles and that she’s yet to figure out the success formula in comedy.

Known for essaying complex roles with ease and finesse, Vidya will soon be seen in another intense role in “Hamari Adhuri Kahani”.

Asked if it’s intentional that she is back with an intense film after the failure of her comedy projects, Vidya said “No, it’s just how the scripts come to me. Intensity is my other name; I am an intense person… so I think that comes to me naturally.

“I don’t enjoy any genre as much as I enjoy intense emotional dramas. I have been through comedies, and I have not figured out comedy yet.”

With Mohit Suri-directed “Hamari Adhuri Kahani” she says the plots and characters go into human complexity — much like writer-producer Mahesh Bhatt’s films.

“I have always enjoyed his films. ‘Arth’ (1983) had a strong influence on me. I felt that there is someone who is unafraid to explore human frailty, complexity, insecurity, fears, love in its blossom and its madness,” she added.

The film also features Emraan Hashmi and Rajkumar Rao.
