Vidya Balan, who was the female lead in the hit 2010 movie Ishqiya, was offered a special screening of the movie’s sequel Dedh Ishqiya. This movie stars Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi who will be reprising their roles from the previous film but instead of Vidya Balan, Madhuri Dixit and Huma Qureshi will be the female leads.
The movie Ishqiya garnered a lot of critical acclaim because of its dark nature and Vidya’s performance was highly appreciated but because of the story of the sequel, the makers could not rope in Vidya again. Hence the makers decided to honor her by having a special screening for her.
“Vidya has been most gracious and very keen to watch the trailer and even offered to attend the trailer launch but as we are first launching the trailer on the Facebook instead of the conventional launch in a theatre we have offered to hold a special trailer viewing for her at her place,” Mansi Maroo of Shemaroo said.
The film is directed by Abhishek Chaubey.
