"I'm a very impatient, restless, easily bored audience, so when I read something, I ask myself if I will watch it as an audience. Then, of course, whether the character calls out to me, whether the script works for me, the director is very crucial. Also, the producer. You can only make the right film with the right kind of producer," Vidya Balan says, setting the tone for the press conference of her new film, Neeyat.

The actor and the impressive ensemble cast was present, giving us interesting glimpses into the film.

Before Neeyat, Vidya played a detective in Bobby Jassoos.

Here, she tells us just makes the two films, and roles, very different.

"Vidya doesn't say yes very easily, so I had to make sure that she loved the film first as an audience," Anu Menon says with a laugh, as she narrates how she got the actor on board once again after collaborating together on Shakuntala Devi.

Vidya returns to the theatres after four years, and she's certainly feeling the pressure (the last time we saw her on the big screen was the hit, Mission Mangal).

Even as she gets ready for her detective skills, Ram Kapoor endorses, "You have never seen a detective like this ever before."
