Mumbai: Like several other B-town actresses, Vidya Balan too was inspired by Madhuri Dixit. "I was crazy about Madhuri Dixit's 'Ek Do Teen' and I used to break into a dance everytime it played.

In, fact I started to believe that I could be a junior Madhuri Dixit... I am sure several others would have also felt that way," Vidya told reporters here after unveiling the first look of her forthcoming film 'Kahani'.

"But that was the time when I felt I should be an actor," she said. Interestingly, Madhuri is likely to play the leading lady in 'Dedh Isqhiya', sequel to Vidya's film.

In 'Kahani', directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Vidya plays a pregnant woman who comes to Kolkata in search of her husband. The film releases on March 9. At the event, Vidya had put on a baby bump, to look like her character in the film.
