Her story ends: Vidya Balan wraps shoot of Sujoy Ghosh's 'Kahaani 2' in Kolkata
Vidya Balan tweeted that she has finished her portion of the shoot for Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani 2 in Kolkata
Ever since it was announced that Vidya Balan would be a part of Kahaani 2, speculation around the project has been high. Vidya's sporadic tweets from Kolkata — where she had returned to shoot the film (incidentally, she had also shot there for the original Kahaani) — provided updates on how far the shoot had progressed in the City of Joy.
Now, Vidya has announced that her portion of the film has been completed. Vidya shared the news with her followers on micro-blogging platform Twitter, thanking her director Sujoy Ghosh for giving her "another mother of a story" to work on.

The report that Vidya had finished her segment of Kahaani 2 came a little after a leading daily published photos of her on the sets of the film.
In the photos, Vidya is dressed in a drab outfit, with a stole over hear head. A burn scar obscures part of her face. She is seated in a yellow taxicab with what seems like a wheelchair stuffed in the boot.
Vidya's Kahaani 2 co-star Arjun Rampal was also seen in the photos, in character as a policeman.
News agencies had reported that Vidya started work on the film in March. Arjun, however, started the shoot only last week. The film is expected to release on 29 November 2016.
Apart from Kahaani 2, Vidya has several other high-profile films coming up. TE3N, in which she stars opposite Amitabh Bachchan will be in theatres on 10 June.
She will also start work on Begum Jaan, helmed by Srijit Mukherjee, soon.
