Finally the prayers of Bollywood fans (who also love Hollywood) are about to be answered. Anyone who has seen the cult series Kill Bill, cannot help but wonder if we would ever have such a film in Bollywood. People have even discussed their favorite Bolly actresses for the role essayed by Uma Thurman in this legendary series of films. Can anyone in Bollywood dare to remake Quintin Terentino’s “Kill Bill”?

The answer is YES. Film maker Sujoy Ghosh is all set to create history. He has decided to make his version of this tale of love and revenge. The first question you want to ask now is “Who will play the lead role?” Right? The truth is that you will not be able to guess the name of the actress chosen to play this role. Sujoy has chosen a very unlikely candidate to play the lead role in his ambitious film.

The role played by Uma Thurman in the Kill Bill series has been bagged by Vidya Balan in a film inspired by the cult original. Not surprisingly, Vidya is extremely excited about this role. She has never done any role which could be remotely linked with stunts or action sequences. She does not even look like she could do it at the moment. But knowing Vidya, she will give this role her perfect shot. We know how professional she is and expect nothing less than the best from her.

While Vidya is getting ready for some serious action, other leading ladies can bite the dust. Hot favorites like Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor have all been left behind in this race.

We hear that the film is only “inspired” by Kill Bill. The leading lady is cheated by people she trusts and then begins a tale of revenge, not unlikne the one in Kill Bill! We don’t really mind the “only inspired” tag, as long as Sujoy can do justice to th original. If previous remakes are anything to go by, he might just end up completely ruining the film. So Sujoy needs to tread very carefully, and he needs a lot of good luck!
