The super-cute poster of TUMHARI SULU has made its way to Vidya Balan’s wall as an oil painting.
The image of a happy empowered Sulu (Vidya Balan), raring to go, in a pink sari with a red cape around her neck, has caught the audience’s fancy, so much so that it even prompted celebrated writer-columnist Twinkle Khanna to post on a micro-blogging site for Vidya “More power to your sari/cape.”
Ad filmmaker and director of TUMHARI SULU Suresh Triveni got one of Bollywood’s oldest poster artists, Laxman Subhash Jadhav, to make an oil painting of the poster of his film and gifted it to his “favourite actress” to adorn her home wall.
Talking about this lovely gift Vidya said, “TUMHARI SULU has been a wonderful journey to say the least. The character of Sulu is extra special – a curious, fun-loving and enthusiastic housewife who goes from apron to cape. When Suresh gifted me this painting, I was delighted and put it up on my wall almost immediately. It is a treasured gift.”
Talking about why he gifted Vidya an oil painting of the poster Suresh revealed, “I saw many paintings of Vidya’s earlier film posters at her house. That’s where the greed started. I wanted Sulu to be a part of her wall of fame. I have been dying to work with her for the longest. Doing TUMHARI SULU has been a dream come true.”
Produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment, TUMHARI SULU is all set to hit the silver screens on November 24.
