New Delhi [India], Sept. 12 (ANI): Looks like Vidya Balan is doing her homework meticulously to master the mannerism of poetess Kamala Surayya, who wrote with a pseudonym Kamala Das in English, for her upcoming bilingual biopic on the latter.

The 38-year-old actress recently took to her Twitter handle to post a picture of herself immersed in reading the revolutionary poetess' (also known by her pen name Madhavikutty) autobiography 'My Story.'

"As I prepare to tell Your Story, Kamla Das", Vidya captioned the post.

To be directed by Malayalam award-winning filmmaker Kamal, the movie will also star south-Indian actor Prithviraj, who has worked opposite Rani Mukherjee in 2012-flick 'Aiyyaa.'

Reportedly, Vidya, whose family hails from Kerala, has hired a tutor to learn Malayalam to prepare her role for the film.

The ' Dirty Picture' actress will next be seen in Sujoy Ghosh's 'Kahaani 2' and Srijit Mukherji directed ' Begum Jaan.'

' Kahaani 2,' also starring Arjun Rampal will hit the cinemas on November 25. (ANI)
