Mumbai, May 16: After giving solo blockbusters “The Dirty Picture” and “Kahaani”, Vidya Balan has draw up a wish list of male co-stars. She wants to work with actors like Abhishek Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Prosenjit Chatterjee.
“I would like to work with those who I have already worked with and those who I haven’t. I would love to pair with Abhishek (with whom she was seen in ‘Paa’)… It’s been long. I am very greedy to work with good actors and directors,” she said at the release of the DVD of her film “Kahaani” here Wednesday.
“Kahaani”, a thriller directed by Sujoy Ghosh, is about a pregnant woman’s difficult journey to find her husband’s killer.
The actress said she would like to work with Hritik because she hasn’t worked with him.
Talking about Bengali superstar Prosenjit, she said: “We have been wanting to work together for a long time. Every year there has been talks about a Bengali film but we have not been able to work out the dates. So this year, Sujoy has said he will make a film with both of us. We are on a lookout for a good script. If everything happens, we will make it work.”
Vidya said she would love to team up with Shah Rukh in a romantic flick.
“I think I grew up watching all his films where he plays the ultimate romantic hero. When you think of romance you think of Rajesh Khanna and Shah Rukh Khan. These are the names that are foremost on my mind.
“Every woman wants a Raj (SRK’s character in ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’). That’s why I have always wanted to work with him. Whenever we work together, I would like it to be a nice relationship story,” she said.
If “The Dirty Picture” is remade in Bengali with item girl Rakhi Sawant, how will the latter fare?
Vidya said: “I have seen Rakhi a lot, so I think she is a lot of masti. I am waiting to see what she does in the film.”
