With his straight-faced jokes FarhanAkhtar found an easy bakra (scapegoat) in me, says VidyaBalan, his co-star in the upcoming film ‘ShaadiKe Side Effects’.
“I love to laugh and Farhan loves to make people laugh so the ‘funda’ was very clear. He found an easy ‘bakra’ in me. I enjoyed his sense of humour. He has a very sharp mind. I have seen the film and I am glad that we got together for this one where the comedy is very true to real life,” Vidya said.
Having been a fan of Farhan’s earlier films like ‘Luck By Chance’ and ‘ZindagiMilegiNaaDobaara’, Vidya says they were well-matched in the SaketChaudhary-directed comedy, a genre which is relatively new for both the actors.
“Farhan is one of those actors who are subtle even in comedy. It is effortless and yet it makes you laugh. He is supremely talented in a multi-dimensional way.
“Acting is about reacting. This film would have suffered if any of us was out of tune but we were well-matched in it. We were completely tuned into each other which is great as an actor. We complimented each other.
The 36-year-old actress, who got married to UTV CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur in 2012, signed up the film a few months after the marriage but she does not believe her marriage life influenced the character she is playing in the film.
“I have played a married woman in many films. My first film was called ‘Parineeta-the married woman’. I don’t know whether I brought in my personal experiences into the film as it did not require that. Most love relationships are quite similar in many ways. Situations may differ but men and women tend to react in similar ways,” says Vidya.
