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.”
