There is no Mr Right, says Vidya Balan

There is no Mr Right, says Vidya Balan

The actress who has a retrospective section dedicated to her at the Indian Film Festival 2011, which opened here today, laughed off reports that she is engaged to Siddharth Roy Kapur, head honcho of UTV Motion pictures.

"I like his height so he might be worth considering," quipped Balan, adding, "There is no Mr Right, it just becomes right in love."

The actress who won over the critics with her roles in films like 'Paa' and 'Ishqiya' said that she now wants to do comedy roles.

"I would love to do comedy but such films invariably don't have enough for the girls to do. Bu I have come across a script and it is being put together right now," said the 32-year-old.

Vidya said that she is excited about 'Dirty Picture', the bio-pic where she plays   which she says is a challenge to her as an actor.

"It gives me a chance to portray a real life character, Silk Smitha, a person I don't really understand and that is an exciting thing for me as an actor. That is a challenge, to portray that person with whom you don't identify at all," she said.

Earlier, in a press conference Balan also spoke to local media along with other actors and directors including Arbaaz Khan, Ali Zafar, Kabir Khan and Raj Kumar Gupta who are here to attend the 10 day long festival.

Of the diverse selection of 30 films, more than half are Australian and New Zealand premieres, some with filmmakers in attendance.

The 2011 Indian Film Festival runs in Australia and New Zealand throughout March.
