Thriller genre is evolving: Vidya
The National Award winner will soon be seen in the upcoming thriller Kahaani 2, a sequel to the 2012 film Kahaani, co-written and directed by Sujoy Ghosh.
Asked if she has seen any change in the thriller genre, Vidya said “It’s getting more extensive. It’s not just about the bad guys. The typical thriller construct is changing and evolving.”
“There are a lot of people within the thriller genre who are finding new ways of telling stories,” added the Parineeta star. Kahaani 2, also starring Arjun Rampal, is slated to release on November 25.
Vidya, who has delivered impressive performances in films like The Dirty Picture, will be seen portraying Kamala Das, an Indian-English writer.Last month, Vidya said she had agreed to do the bipoic on Kamala Das, as she wanted to know the author as a person.
“Kamala was very progressive. I agreed to do this biopic because I want to know her as a person. She is a very unique person and I just want to know her better,” Vidya said.
