MUMBAI: Post Tumhari Sulu, Vidya Balan took quite some time to finalise her next film. She has given her nod to actor-politician Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao’s (NTR) biopic, where she will portray the role of NTR’s wife Basava Tarakam and now we are hearing that the powerhouse performer has been approached for the Hindi remake of Tamil’s comedy-drama 36 Vayadhinile that released in 2015. Produced by superstar Suriya, the film was a comeback vehicle of his wife Jyothika.
The film is a story of a 36-year-old housewife, who sacrifices her dreams for her husband and daughter and later goes on a journey of rediscovering herself. The film was appreciated by the critics and did good business at the box-office. As per sources, 36 Vayadhinile Hindi remake will be also directed by Rosshan Andrrews, who made the film in Tamil. The makers have approached Vidya to play the central role. They feel Vidya will be apt to portray Jyothika’s role in the remake.
