Vidya Balan prepares for her role as Kamala Das
Vidya Balan is all set to step into the shoes of the scandalous author and Malayali poetess Kamala Das in the Malayalam film, Aami.
After winning the National award, among other awards, for her outstanding and unabashed performance in The Dirty Picture, Vidya is getting ready for another bold and brazen biopic as she prepares to essay Kamala Das in a bilingual film.
Not only is the actress learning Malayalam under the guidance of popular actress Sreedhanya, but is also reading books penned by the author and researching her life to better understand Kamala.
Kamala Das aka Kamala Surayya, was known for her open and honest treatment of female sexuality that was free from any sense of guilt. The author during her lifetime came under major scrutiny for openly talking about sexuality, as well as her religious conversion.
