'Vidya is a lovely actress'

'Vidya is a lovely actress'

If Madhuri Dixit oozes talent, she is equally good at recognising and praising other talents. Vidya Balan is the case in point. Madhuri, who has replaced Vidya in Dedh Ishqiya, the sequel to Ishqiya,  says she not only likes the latter’s body of work, but was also the first one to talk about her talent.

Seen as a conniving, scheming and sensual woman, Vidya wowed all with her performance in the Abhishek Chaubey-directed dark drama Ishqiya. 

Praising the actress, Madhuri said: “Vidya is wonderful. She is a lovely actress and I not only liked her in Ishqiya, I also liked her in her first movie, Parineeta. I was the first one to have talked about her in an interview saying she is a good actress. I loved her in ‘The Dirty Picture’ and Kahaani. She is very talented.”

Dedh Ishqiya is coming out on January 10 and will see Madhuri, 46, in a completely different avatar. Helmed by Abhishek, the film also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, who were there in the original, along with Huma Qureshi.
