Vidya Balan Says Delhiwallahs Donít Have Time To Watch Film Shooting
Bollywood starlet Vidya Balan discovered the new side of Delhi while filming her soon to release flick No One Killed Jessica. The actress revealed that she visited city’s crowded markets but was surprised to discover that Delhiwallahs don’t have time to watch the film shooting.
"I always thought Delhi was a bit more relaxed than Mumbai where nobody walks aaram se (in a relaxed way). But through my walks in Delhi during the shoot of `No One Killed Jessica`, I realised that people don`t have time to look at you. Life is as fast-paced here as in Mumbai," Vidya was quoted as saying.
"I give complete leeway to the fact that I was dressed differently - very plain and simply. I saw a mad rush of people in CP and Bhikaji Cama, but people didn`t have time to stop and look at us. I had always heard that Mumbai is more used to stars and Delhi isn`t used to stars, but even here, no one cared! This is one new side of Delhi that I got to explore," she added.
The 32-year old actress also said that she walked in the crowded areas of the capital like Connaught Place and Bhikaji Cama Place and was impressed with the experience.
"I actually walked through the streets of Delhi for the film. It`s been a different and heart-warming experience because it wasn`t like just shooting in one location. I had to walk through streets wearing absolutely plain clothes and shoot with hidden cameras to look like one of the people in the crowd.”
"I won`t be able to specify the streets I traversed, but I know I have been through both - Puraani Dilli and New Delhi. I have really explored Delhi like I could never have done alone and I don`t think any Delhiite has explored Delhi the way I did during this shoot," she said.
Vidya will be seen portraying the role of Sabrina Lall in the film which is believed to be based on the controversial Jessica Lal murder case.
