Vidya Balan Auditioned 75 times For Pradeep Sarkar’s Parineeta

Published

Composer Shantanu Moitra of “Parineeta” recalled seeing actress Vidya Balan in a very vulnerable state when she was rejected 75 times for her starring role in the film. Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, “Parineeta” was an adaptation from the Bengali novella of the same name by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The film also starred Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Dia Mirza. Looking back at the experience of working on the film, he said: “The fondest memory I have about ‘Parineeta’ is that of an incredible girl who was sitting with us at Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s office… We slowly became friends.” 15 Years Of Parineeta: Vidya Balan, Sanjay Dutt Gets Nostalgic About the Pradeep Sarkar Directorial (Read Tweets)

“I asked her what she was doing and she said she was here for audition. I’m talking about Vidya Balan. This story is for those people who think that enough is enough, let’s give up. The girl auditioned about 75 times and got rejected every single time. Can you imagine her self-worth? Then Pradeep would tell Vinod to try a new look because the previous one wasn’t working. At that time, many top actresses were giving the same auditions as well and calling him for a role. 7 Years of Raanjhanaa: Aanand L Rai Cherishes How People Today Still Listen to the Film’s Music with Love.

Think about the pressure on that girl! I still remember the day after getting rejected for the 75th time, there was a Bryan Adams concert in Mumbai and she said that she was going for it. At that time, Pradeep said that ‘let’s do one last audition’ and around 3:30, she quickly came and gave the test with the belief that it won’t happen and after her test, she left for the concert,” he added. Moitra continued: “The next part, I was the witness to since I was there to present our song – ‘Piya bole’. The song happened and things were going smooth when suddenly Pradeep opened the laptop and told Vinod that there is one more test.

Vinod just took a look at it and said that they have finally found her, they found Parineeta. Now the deal was to call Vidya from the concert. Pradeep was calling Vidya but she was thinking about switching off the phone, thinking that the call was about a rejection. Someone texted her – ‘Dude it’s over, you are ‘Parineeta’. I think she got the message and she walked outside, crying. She just kneeled and was sobbing because she had got the role. After that film, she became this amazing actress, strong woman but I have seen her in that vulnerable state when she was rejected 75 times.”

Talking about it, Vidya said: “I got the chance to work with Shantanu in ‘Parineeta’. We were making an audio board for Parineeta and Dada said that there is this one scene where Saif says ‘ek shabdh hai, put a tune to this’ and I sing for the audio board. They said this and I followed instructions. Dada turned around and told Shantanu – why don’t we make her sing for this part? And Shantanu’s face went blank. I asked them what was wrong and if I should try again…but there was no reaction on his face and that’s when I realised that he hated the way I had sung.” On the work front, Moitra will be seen recreating Amaal Mallik’s “Sooraj dooba hain” on MX Player’s “Times of Music”.
