Vidya Balan in Geetha Bali character

Vidya Balan will play the role of yesteryear actress Geeta Bali in a Marathi film. Ek Albela is a biopic on late actor-director Bhagwan Dada, and Vidya will have a special appearance in it.

The film traces Bhagwan Dada's life from the age of 28 and the difficulties he faced while making his evergreen musical, Albela, which featured Geeta Bali, a top star of the time. "I wanted someone with a very Indian face to play Geetaji and Vidhya suits the part perfectly," says director Shekhar Sartandel. 

Vidya is excited about the role, "It's an honour to be playing the effervescent Geeta Bali even if it is just a special appearance, and to be recreating Albela for a Marathi biopic on Bhagwan Dada."
