Ek Albela traces the journey of Bhagwan Dada’s film career as an actor and director and Vidya’s role will be credited as a special appearance. For the ones who are unaware, Bhagwan Dada faced a lot of obstacles while making the musical Albela which had Geeta Bali in the lead.
As per reports, Director of the film, Shekhar Sartandel also added that Vidya will not be required to speak in Marathi since Geeta Bali was from the Hindi film industry.
