Hyderabad :

National Award-winning actress Vidya Balan says stories that revolve around women attract her.

The actress believes being a woman is a beautiful thing and she doesn't want to miss a film which has substantial female characters.

"I am a woman, I get attracted towards women- centric films. "If I am getting parts which are absolutely substantial,around which stories (are) told... then Why not? It's not an attempt to eliminate anyone (male character)," she said.

Vidya, 38, said she doesn't think about the result and only goes by the character. "I am very happy with the kind of work I am getting...In ever think of success because it's not in your control."

The actress, who has delivered hits like "The Dirty Picture" and "Kahaani" will next be seen in "Kahaani 2: DurgaRani Singh". The Sujoy Ghosh-directed movie releases on December 2.

When asked about the most difficult part in the film, Vidya said, "It was the scene where the little girl (child artiste Naisha Khanna) jumps off (from the terrace of a building)...I broke down during the scene. Of course, it was filmed shooting and she will not get hurt.

"To see a six-year-old girl fall off...I couldn't bear it. I was a bit emotional that day," she added. On acting with Naisha, Vidya said, "She is a very talented actor and is effortless. It was very easy to work with her." The actress further said there is no connection between the sequel and the latest film.   

"Here Durga Rani Singh, is a kind of woman you don't know, Who she actually is. Most often we all get some feeling about people, who we meet, but you can't figure out about some people and Durga Rani Singh is one of those. "So, it was very interesting for me as an actor toplay Durga Rani Singh. I am glad Sujoy gave me this challenge," Vidya said.
