Vidya Balan, who is presently busy with the promotions of Begum Jaan, will start shooting for her next, Tumhari Sulu, in which she is playing a night RJ, soon after the release of the movie.
Begum Jaan will release on April 14 and post that, Balan will dive straight into a second round of look tests, script readings and diction coaching for Tumhari Sulu, which will be directed by noted ad-man Suresh Triveni. The film will go on floors within a fortnight of Begum Jaan‘s release.
Since she is playing a simple happy-go-lucky housewife, who lands the job of a RJ, music is a crucial element of the movie. Vidya’s fortnight-long prep will also include choreography rehearsals.
The film’s album will comprise four diverse multi-genre songs scored by different composers. While the dance number will be a full-blown Bollywood-style dhamaka, the romantic number will be pleasant, candid and spontaneous. The street hip-hop number and the soulful mood number will have their own distinctive moves. As each song genre is different from the other, the choreography will be unique, with several renowned choreographers being roped in for the respective genres.
Vidya says, “I’ve begun to enjoy dancing, it’s fun. Tumhari Sulu has a great array of songs and I’m looking forward to the rehearsals.”
Director Suresh Triveni adds, “Music, and therefore choreography, are integral to the film. They take the story forward. We are working hard on devising unique, candid styles for the tracks. The team is putting together reference video edits for each song and we are working with our production designer, cameraman and choreographers on everything from the color palette of the songs to how they will be shot to the moves.”
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Shanti Sivaram Maini, Tumhari Sulu is slated to release on December 1.
