"I wanted to do a Marathi film as I am from Mumbai. I was born and brought up here so, I know their culture. There couldn't have been a first Marathi film for me better than this. I am looking at Marathi scripts. A few films didn't work," she said.
 

She added, “I am also doing a Malayalam film which is a biopic. I am a greedy actor. Wherever I will get a role, I will go”.

Vidya also shared that she was offered close to 10 biopics post the success of The Dirty Picture. She said: "After The Dirty Picture, I was offered eight to 10 biopics but since I had done The Dirty Picture, I wanted to do it later. Then I got this opportunity. But this is not a biopic on Geeta Bali. You don't see all shades of her. I think I get dragged to real life stories."
