There are talks on and that's all I will say," the 34-year-old said here Monday at the unveiling of the cover of the magazine "Savvy" featuring her.

Meanwhile, Vidya, whose films "The Dirty Picture" and "Kahaani" ran depsite the absence of star cast, says today it doesn't matter which actor you are working with as the "script is the hero".
