Vidya Balan on Sherni: It was actually very tough to play a character like Vidya Vincent
Vidya Balan on playing a woman of few words but many dimensions in 'Sherni', "I had to exercise the expression of non-expression"
Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is a force to be reckoned with in the Indian film industry, who has shown us repeatedly that you define your success ladder and not the other way around.
Over the 15 years of her career trajectory, Vidya has done upon various unique characters that became critically acclaimed and widely appreciated. Her latest is Vidya Vincent in Sherni.
In 'Sherni’ which is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, audiences and critics have highly praised and hailed Vidya's acting skills.
Speaking about the same, Vidya shares, "The character of Vidya Vincent had a lot of interesting layers, which was something I'd never portrayed before. Her actions spoke louder than her words, in a very obvious way. I had to exercise the expression of non-expression. My expressions have to convey what I am feeling. There are people who are completely inscrutable, and I guess this character is one of them. It was a different kind of experience as an actor."
She further adds, "It was actually very tough to play a character like Vidya Vincent. She is reticent, she doesn’t say much, and she doesn’t smile much, which is not me as a person, nor it is like any of the characters that I've played so far. I’ve played characters, all of them strong, but strong in very other ways. Whereas Vidya’s got a very strong will, but she doesn’t like to engage with the world."
The film has been garnering a great response from everywhere alike, with Vidya's performance becoming the talk of the town.
