Bollywood actor Vidya Balan, who has locked lips with Emraan Hashmi, Arshad Warsi and Madhavan in different films, said she had no qualms over kissing a woman on-screen.
Speaking on on Neha Dhupia’s podcast No Filter Neha, the talented and versatile actor said that it was not her natural instinct to get intimate with a woman but she would do it if the role demanded her to do so.
She stunned the host by naming three Hollywood actresses who she might like to kiss – Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek and Emma Stone.
Vidya also revealed that Emraan Hashmi would utter something ridiculous before a kissing scene and kept teasing her on the sets of Ghanchakkar.
The actor said as far as she was concerned, her husband, Siddharth Roy Kapur, was the best looking man in the world and she was happy to have tied the knot with him.
Talking about her college days, she narrated an incident when she thrashed a pervert in a train because he was masturbating in the women’s compartment. She fought the man and made him leave the compartment.
Vidya also spoke about her queer fascination with the smell of turpentine and paint. “If I smell them somewhere, I ask people to get me some,” she said.
Though people have warned her about this fascination becoming an addiction, she refuses to believe them.
From her debut in Pradeep Sarkar’s 2005 film Parineeta, Vidya has reached the top with sheer hard-work and talent. Her upcoming film is Tumhari Sulu, where she is playing an RJ, a character she also essayed in Lage Raho Munnabhai in 2006.
