Vidya ‘not aware’ of Siddharth being miffed by her support for Kangana

Mumbai: Actress Vidya Balan says that she is not aware about reports claiming that her husband, producer Siddharth Roy Kapur, was miffed with her for supporting fellow actress Kangana Ranaut in her “battle” with actor Hrithik Roshan.

Asked about this, Vidya, at an event for her Marathi film “Ekk Albela”, a biopic of yesteryears dancing star Bhagwan Dada, said: “Since you are telling me, there must have been, because I’m not aware.”

There have been reports that Kapur was upset with Vidya’s comments supporting Kangana in her bitter conflict with Hrithik related to their alleged relationship, sharing of personal pictures, messages and police complaints. At the trailer launch of her film “Te3n”, Vidya had said that she had great admiration for Kangana as she was standing up for herself and gave her “more power”.

Her comments reportedly didn’t go down well with Siddharth as his production house Disney is the producer of Hrithik’s 2017 film “Kaabil” and Vidya’s comments could create an awkward situation between him and Hrithik. The reports also claimed that Kapur doesn’t like to get into controversies and Vidya talking about the Hrithik-Kangana fight had made him a part of one.

Vidya also revealed that her husband Siddharth has a lot of film posters. “It’s his passion, he collects them. He has 60-70 posters; we can’t put it up all at once, so we change them. But since we have got married, one poster that I haven’t changed is of ‘Albela’.”

She also noted that Bhagwan Dada is supposed to have learnt dance from Kapur’s maternal grandfather, Sam Aaron. “He was a pioneer in bringing all the western forms of dance to India. I think I was just meant to do this (film)… there are things that are beyond you and this is definitely one of them.”
