New Delhi: There has been news in media circuits of a rift between Vidya Balan and her Kahaani director Sujoy Ghosh and now Vidya has come out in open to confirm it.
The National Award winning actress said on her relationship with Sujoy, “I think that way (like friends), he (Sujoy) and I are not communicating with each other at all, and I don't know what the future holds ... that's all I can say”. The report was published in a leading daily.
The relationship between Vidya and Sujoy went sour when the actress opted out of his film ‘Durga Rani Singh' citing health issues. Her refusal came at the time when the director had made all the arrangements of the shoot and canceling it at the last moment cost him a fortune.
Commenting on the issue, Vidya had said a few months ago, “I am a little sad I couldn't work in this project because we made ‘Kahaani' together and we were like parents of ‘Kahaani'. It was a very difficult decision for me to say no (to ‘Durga Rani Singh'), but I was not keeping well so I couldn't do it. I had no option”.
Sujoy then approached Kangana Ranut and Kareena Kapoor Khan for the role but both said no to the National Award winner. His project was then shelved as he had trouble financing the film.
There were also reports suggesting that Vidya rejected the offer because his producer husband Siddharth Roy Kapur had refused to finance the film. Rubbishing the claim Vidya told a leading daily, “Luckily, I've been an actor before I met Siddharth. I do not expect him to produce every film of mine. Actually, I will be more comfortable if he didn't, because it's just healthier for our marriage. So there was no question of that at all."
The last collaboration of Vidya Balan and Sujoy Ghosh gave us an outstanding film like ‘Kahaani', which won several accolades including four National Film Awards.
