Mumbai, June 30 (TIWN) Composer Shantanu Moitra pf "Parineeta" recalled seeing actress Vidya Balan in a very vulnerable state when she was rejected 75 times for her starring role in the film.

Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, "Parineeta" was an adaptation from the Bengali novella of the same name by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The film also starred Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Dia Mirza.

Looking back at the experience of working on the film, he said: "The fondest memory I have about 'Parineeta' is that of an incredible girl who was sitting with us at Vidhu Vinod Chopra's office... We slowly became friends."
