Vidya said that she was honoured to be the brand ambassador of the festival third time with 2014 being the special one as the festival will be inaugurated by Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan on May 1 here.

Vidya is on her two-day trip to Australia and would be returning back tonight to receive Padma Shree award on Monday in New Delhi.

Expressing her gratitude for all the awards and appreciations she has received in the past, Vidya said, "As long as I get exciting parts to play, work with good filmmakers and team, I think that is what I am hoping for... Everything else follows."

"I have never pursued or worked towards an award but good work is always what one hopes for," Vidya said.

The 36-year-old actress also quashed her pregnancy rumours disclosing that she was taking a short break to get back to her acting career.

"I have been working with back to back shooting and film release for the last five years. I am taking a break for two months before I start promoting my next film 'Bobby Jasoos’ which will release in June or July and would need lot of work," she said.

According to recent reports, Vidya opted out of Sujoy Ghosh's next thriller 'Durga Rani Singh' and speculations are that she has been replaced by Kangana Ranaut.

When asked about her take on Ranaut replacing her in the film, Vidya said, "I am happy that she is doing the film."
