Director Vivek Agnihotri wanted Vidya Balan to play the lead in his movie on women empowerment, but the actress had already signed Kahaani by then.

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who is all set to make a film on women empowerment, was keen to sign Vidya Balan for the lead role.
"My first choice for the film was Vidya Balan. But had Vidya not done Kahaani before, then she would have done this film. But I would certainly come with a script in future which would justify her," said Vivek Agnihotri - who directed films like Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal.
"Now we have approached some other actresses...Let's see how things fall in place," he added.
Talking about his film, Vivek Agnihotri said: "The film is about women in today's society and the system that doesn't support them. It's a suspense thriller."
Will he cast his wife Pallavi Joshi in the film?
"Pallavi is doing a film with me Buddha In A Traffic Jam. But she will not be in this film," he clarified.
