Is Vidya Doing Ekta’s MMS film?

It seems that Vidya is now more interested in real-time characters. After playing a role of Sabrina Lall, sister of slain Delhi model Jessica, in “No One Killed Jessica and bagging Ekta Kapoor’s Dirty Picture, Vidya Balan is once again part of Ekta’s next project, Ragini MMS based on the infamous MMS scandal in a Delhi school.

Though, initially, Ekta approached Kangana to play the role but she refused because of the subject. After her refusal, the producer got Vidya to play the role. A source says,

“Kangna walked out of the film, perhaps because she had developed cold feet about the movie. This is a bold movie and it needs an actress who can do justice to a strong portrayal. Vidya is can deliver such intense roles with confidence. She is anyway doing “Dirty Picture”, based on the life of Silk Smitha, with Ekta and her company felt that she’s appropriate for the role. So, they’ve approached her.”

When we contacted Balaji Motion Pictures, CEO Tanuj Garg sent us an SMS saying,

“I don’t want to say anything at this stage. But the film is definitely on.”

What we can say, but foer sure, Vidya is moving ahead in her career
