In an interview with Pinkvilla, Vidya answered why she doesn't want to work with her husband. "Because it's too much. I could have a problem with my director and producer and argue it out. Actually, I don't fight, I argue and I reason. But I can't do that with Siddharth. When it's so personal, I think because I can fight with Siddharth, I'll end up fighting with him," she said.
The 40-year-old, Vidya Balan added, "I want to retain the sanctity of our relationship. There have been times when we've both passed on a script, even when we liked it. I can't negotiate money with him. Imagine if he says you should be getting this much, and I say I should be getting ten times more. I'll say are you under-valuing me? I don't want to get into that space at all."
