After Karisma Kapoor and Urmila Matondkar’s makeover in Raja Hindustani and Rangeela respectively, it’s now time for plain Jane Vidya Balan to turn glam.

Ever since her debut film Parineeta and until recently in Lage Raho Munnabhai and Eklavya, Vidya Balan has always portayed a simple Indian girl-next-door look.

Now with Sajid Khan’s Heyy Babyy, Balan is all set to shed her simple avatar and don a new glam yet subtle look. Together Khan, Malhotra and the actress had various photo shoots to zero in on the final look.

Vidya’s new look will be a welcome change for her fans who have seen her mostly in Indian dresses in her previous films and the credit will go to the director Sajid Khan and fashion designer Manish Malhotra.

Vidya Balan began her filmy carrier with a Malayalam film titled Chakram with Mohanlal. Unfortunately, the film was shelved mid-way. Then Vidya had to wait for a few more years to make a debut.

In 2005, she debuted in Bollywood with Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Parineeta, directed by Pradeep Sarkar and succeeded in making the role perfect with her natural beauty and talent. — ANI
