Vidya Balan, who had Bollywood audiences under her spell with back-to-back success in the form of The Dirty Picture (2011) and Kahaani (2012), has had a string of underwhelming performances in the last few years. But the talented actress seems to be all set to change that this year, with a number of intriguing projects in her kitty.
The actress is all set to start shooting for the sequel of Kahaani, directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The director reportedly has plans to take Vidya Balan's character forward and the movie will reportedly start from where the 2011 film left off.
The film is set to go on floors in Kolkata by the end of March. Ghosh has planned a prolonged 90-day schedule for the film in Kolkata and the shooting is expected to be wrapped up by end of June.
Pen Ltd, the producers of Kahaani are eyeing March 2017 for the release. Jayantilal Gada from Pen Ltd confirmed the decision, saying it was taken as the major release dates in the second half of 2016 had already been booked. Coincidentally, Kahaani also released in the month of March in 2012.
