[RxPG] Mumbai, May 14 - Vidya Balan laughs off allegations that she opted out of Pradeep Sarkar's 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' because she didn't want to play second lead in a Rani Mukerji starrer.

'I actually can't believe I'm not doing dada's - film. There's no way I could've let this happen. But dada wanted to complete the film within a certain period and those dates were committed to Sajid Khan's 'Hey Baby' a year back,' Vidya explains.

She says that Sarkar is like family to her.

'Not being in his film was inconceivable to me. I can't believe the film is being made without me. The ads and the film - that I've done with dada are very precious to me,' Vidya told IANS.

In 'Hey Baby', she had to coordinate her dates with co-stars Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan and Kunal Kapoor.

'In dada's film my dates had to be coordinated with Jayaji -, Rani, Abhishek - and Kunal. Both projects needed chunk dates.

'Not doing dada's film wasn't an easy call to take. When people say it's shocking to hear that I'm not in dada's film, do they realise how shocking it is for me? You can't believe how awful I felt to not be in it. Inshallah, I'll be in his next. They tell me they miss me there. To even talk about it makes me emotional.'

As for rumours about why she didn't do the project, Vidya has only one thing to say, 'As long as dada and I know the truth it doesn't matter. Gossip is a full-time vocation.'

After 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai', Vidya has almost completed another socially relevant film. She's excited about Raj Kumar Santoshi's 'Halla Bol'.

'Santoshi's films have always had a very high level of social relevance. I'm so happy to be working with him. I was fully aware that it's the story of the male protagonist's journey from real to reel hero. It's Ajay Devgan's film. I'm the wife but my character is integral to the film.

'Like I always say, the true barometer of a role is not its length but how much of a difference it makes to the plot. And if you take away my role from 'Halla Bol', it makes a difference. I don't mind doing one scene as long as that scene makes an impact.'

On the anvil is Anurradha Prasad's film to be directed by Sourabh Narang.

'Yes, but that was supposed to be in August 2005. But it's a lovely subject. And Narang is someone I respect. I'd still love to do it.'
