We all know that all is not well between mentor, Pradeep Sarkar and his protégé, Vidya Balan. The director has still not forgiven her for refusing to do Laaga Chunri Main Daag. Although he went on to sign Konkona Sen Sharma for the role, he still maintains that Vidya would have been better for the role.

However, Vidya turned down the role as she did not want to play second fiddle to Rani Mukherjee, even though she knew that Dada (Sarkar) would not be very happy with her. In fact, she knows that he is still upset with her. Vidya is believed to have said that the other reason for turning down the role was that Dada wanted her to shoot in January 2007 but she had already given her dates for Heyy Babyy and was not able to change the dates.

The actress has also fallen out with director Sudhir Mishra for not doing Khoya Khoya Chand which eventually went to Soha Ali Khan. According to Vidya, she knows that the director too is very peeved with her. According to her, she had a few questions about the role. Then there was Shaji Karun's Suryamukhi, the film for which Shaji wanted to originally make with Madhuri Dixit, the third film that Vidya has refused in the recent past.


This time the actress says that the makers did not get in touch with her for a long time. And when they did, she was already leaving for Jaipur to shoot for Bhool Bhulaiya.
