Scheming, cursing, turning vile... even playing filthy games of love, Balan is all set to out do her previously set positive protagonist image in the industry. Her upcoming film with Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah, titled Ishqiya, is a third of daringly rustic ventures from Vishal Bhardwaj, after the success of Omkara and more recently Kaminey.

The movie is due to release by the end of this year. Vidya, having grown from the Tellyood fame that 'Hum Paanch' brought her, Vidya has come a long way in terms of her roles. With this new shade of grey, here's adding another feather!
