Mumbai: Bollywood star Vidya Balan recently revealed that just like everyone else she is hooked upon watching certain TV shows. However, the actress also disclosed why she doesn’t watch TV history’s most popular show ‘Game of Thrones’.
n a recent interview with DNA, Vidya was asked to talk about her favourite television shows/web series, Vidya said, “I am heartbroken that we won’t be seeing another season of ‘Houses of Cards’. I was crazy about ‘Mad Men’, too. I liked watching ‘Downtown Abbey’, and ‘Girls’, and I absolutely love ‘Narcos’. I am not the ‘Stranger Things’ sort of a person. I can’t watch it. I tried watching ‘Black Mirror’, but it’s extremely disturbing. I also tried watching ‘Mind hunter’. However, within the first five minutes, I just gave up. It’s too brutal. I don’t watch ‘Game of Thrones’ either. I tried watching it, but I found it too graphic. I can’t deal with all that violence.”
When asked which character she would like to essay from a TV Show, the actress revealed, “Pablo Escobar. I would love to do ‘Narcos’ and play that character. I was actually offered a film about a lady drug peddler who is a big shot but I didn’t do it. However, as a series, it might be very interesting, but then, now ‘Narcos’ is already done. So, you don’t want to repeat the same thing but something like that or maybe a political drama.”
“The only thing that has got me interested in politics is ‘Houses of Cards.’ Another old interesting HBO series I saw was ‘Six Feet Under’. I thought the writing in that was brilliant. I would love to do a drama or a thriller. I also like ‘True Detective’ a lot, which is an old show,” she said.
Vidya is getting lot of appreciation from critics and audiences alike for her delightful performance of a housewife-turned-late night RJ in the latest release ‘Tumhari Sulu’...
