TV’s most loved show Game of Thrones has been across several countries and while fans are patiently awaiting the next season, there are some who think it’s not quite to their taste. One of them happens to be Vidya Balan.
The Kahaani actress recently said it all in an interview, stating that she found it too graphic. Another popular show that she would give a miss to was Netflix’s Stranger Things.
“I am heartbroken that we won’t be seeing another season of House of Cards. I was crazy aboutMad Men, too. I liked watching Downton Abbey, and Girls, and I absolutely love Narcos. I am not a 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 Mindhunter. 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,” she said.
When she was asked about any role she would want to portray, she said, “Pablo Escobar. I would love to do a show like 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 House 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.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Vidya is out and about promoting her new movie Tumhari Sullu, which is a story about a housewife becoming an RJ and has received positive reviews.
