Who's who in Bhool Bhulaiyaa

Vidya Balan plays Shobana

Shobhana played the role of Ganga who comes to visit her husband (Suresh Gopi's) ancestral house. However, she is possessed by the spirit of a famous bharatnatyam dancer Nagavalli of ancient times. A king had kept her in captivity after murdering her lover Ramanathan. So Nagavalli is out to seek revenge from the descendents of the king.

Shobhana did a marvelous role; portraying two characters at the same time. Sometimes she behaves like Nagavalli and starts speaking in Tamil, a language not know to her, while at other times she is just Ganga, a normal human being. Dr Sunny Joseph, (Mohanlal) terms it as a case of split personality.

Shobhana won the prestigious national award for her role. Vidya Balan steps in Shobhana's shoes. She plays Avni Chaturvedi. Though we don't expect her to get a national award, but we do hope to see a commendable performance.
