Vidya Balan open to do more Marathi films

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Vidya Balan, who is making her debut in Marathi film with "Ekk Albela", says she is a greedy actor and is looking forward to get good roles in Marathi cinema.
In the film "Ekk Albela", Vidya will be seen portraying the role of late actress Geeta Bali. Marathi actor Mangesh Desai will portray the role of late actor Bhagwan Dada.
"I have been offered few films but for some reasons things did not work out. I am doing a film in Malayalam it is a biopic on poetess Kamla Das," Vidya told reporters here at an event of "Ekk Albela".
"I am a greedy actor. I am open to play a Maharashtrain role but I will have to work hard on the language. As I will not let anyone else dub for me," she said.
The "Paa" actress, 38, hopes she gets all the good Marathi scripts.
"Ekk Albela" traces the journey of Bhagwan Dada's film career as an actor and director and Vidya's role will be credited as a special appearance.
The noted actor-director Bhagwan Dada died in poverty and most of his associates deserted him. When asked if it is sad state of affairs in Bollywood that when a star loses his charm there is no one to look after
him, Vidya says, "we have heard lot of stories of yesteryear stars that are disheartening. "I don't think it's a phenomenon unique to only Hindi
or Indian cinema. It happens the world over and it is very unfortunate," she said.
