"If I tell you the the truth, I have never tried to change my image. But as an actor I have always tried to portray different roles in my career," Vidya told reporters here.
The Southern beauty, who faced brick bats for her sartorial sense in 'Hey Baby' and 'Kismat Connection' refuted that her modern avatar in these films was because she wanted to get over her traditional girl image.
"Every film of mine retains my old persona which the audience can clearly identify with," Vidya replied after being asked about her role as a seductress in Abhishek Chaubey directed 'Ishqiya', releasing January 29.
"Till date I have acted in around ten Hindi films and in every film I have tried to do something different because I don't want to restrict myself to one particular type," she added.
The 32-year-old actress who was last seen in 'Paa' as a single mother to Amitabh Bachchan, plays the role of a small town girl Krishna in the upcoming film.
"To get a chance of working with such fine actors is a dream come true for me. It improves your acting skills and I feel that in this regard I have been very fortunate," Vidya said.
She may be someone who lives in a dreamworld, but when asked about her dream man Vidya joked, "I don't see the face of my prince charming in my dreams, I just hear a voice. This voice belongs to someone, but I can't tell you who he is."
On being asked about her friendship with actor Shahid Kapoor, Vidya said," Shahid is really committed to his acting and that is why it was good working with him."
