With ‘Tumhari Sulu’, Vidya Balan saw success which she hadn’t seen in her recent movies beforehand. The actress recently spoke about the string of films she was a part of which didn’t strike a chord with the audiences.
“It’s hard to pinpoint as there is no recipe for success. When Hamari Adhuri Kahani released, many felt it was regressive but for me given where Vasudha came from, I thought it was a big step for her to walk away from her husband. Maybe because it wasn’t a song-and-dance film, people weren’t drawn to the theatres, but many have seen it on TV and digital platforms and liked it. Begum Jaan again was too intense and even I go to see a film that makes me feel good about life. Kahaani 2 suffered from being called Kahaani 2. Maybe it didn’t match up to the raised expectations, particularly the end, but given the subject, it did well. The business was almost at par with Tumhari Sulu, yet it was called a flop because it was not another Kahaani,” said Balan, in an interview with Ahmedabad Mirror.
Talking about the future, Balan went on to say, “I’ve never planned my career so I’m waiting for the next script to come and blow my mind. There are a couple of things I’m toying with as I bask in the love for Sulu. Commercial success is important and last year was encouraging. It’s a potent time for cinema. Every kind of story has an audience today.”
