Mumbai: Actress Vidya Balan, who has lost weight for her new film 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects', says it is a different learning experience to share the frame with someone as multi-talented as Farhan Akhtar, who is a writer, actor, director and producer.
"I am enjoying working with him. It's the first time I am working with an actor who is also a writer and director. There is a lot to learn from him and I love the fact that he is a Capricorn," Vidya said here.
The actress had gained around 10 to 12 kg for her roles in 'The Dirty Picture' and yet-to-be-released 'Ghanchakkar'. But for 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects', a sequel to the 2006 film 'Pyaar Ke Side Effects', Vidya had to reduce the excess pounds.
Farhan and Vidya are working together in 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects', which is directed by Saket Chaudhary.
"I had gained weight for the 'The Dirty Picture' and for 'Ghanchakkar' I had to retain that weight, so I did it. Now 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects' is a different film and that character requires me to have different type of a body, so I have tried to do that."
Directed by Saket Chaudhary, 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects' is being co-produced by Pritish Nandy and Ekta Kapoor.
