Not everyone in the film industry is blessed with a godfather or connections with big names. Vidya Malvade is one of those few who establish themselves on their own. She is a name associated with brands like “Hyundai Santro” and believes in working hard to get to the top.
Having studied Law, Vidya worked as an air hostess. She stepped into the glamour world after the sudden demise of her pilot husband. With a perfect body and winning looks, she entered the modeling arena. She also signed a couple of films like “Intehaa”, “Mashooka” and “U Bomsi and Me” but could not make her presence felt.
Vidya is a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan. She has done the “Santro” ad with him and since then, idolizes him. She has now got a golden opportunity to work with the King Khan again in a forthcoming flick “Chak De India” by Shimin Amin ( of “Ab Tak Chhappan” fame). It is a story of a hockey coach (played by Shahrukh) and a Sikh girl (played by Malvade) whose wishes to play the game are trampled by her conservative parents.
After spending a few months in Australia for the film’s shooting, Vidya has already become a complete Shahrukh fan. She admits that he is a perfectionist in every sense of the term. From camera angles to make up, he is involved in every aspect of his films. No wonder then, Shahrukh is a superstar of his time and one of the most loved person in the film fraternity.
Vidya will soon be seen in two other films, namely “Benaam” and “Take Two”. Both the films are yet to be released and Vidya is looking forward to how the audience responds to her role and acting in the film.
For the time being, Vidya loves to live life to the fullest and work hard. For her, if her film works, that’s the beginning and end of it all. Now that’s called dedication!
