Actor Vidya Balan (above), who will be seen portraying Kamala Das, says the Indian-English writer was very progressive and she agreed to do this biopic because she wants to know her as a person.“Kamala was very progressive, she was very strong. I loved the script (of the film) the minute I read it. I agreed to do this biopic because I want to know her as a person,” Vidya says.
The actor, who dabbles in multiple genres of films, and is best remembered for essaying the role of Silk in The Dirty Picture (2011), believes people are ready for all kinds of films. “The audience is so mature now that they will accept different cinema.”
