Newly wed Bollywood actress Vidya Balan, who will be next seen in 'Ghanchakkar' opposite Emraan Hashmi, says that her marriage won't have a bearing on the roles she would opt to play onscreen.

'Ishqiya' and 'The Dirty Picture' showed Vidya at her boldest best winning her a lot of awards. When asked if she would be ok doing bold roles or kissing scenes, post marriage, Vidya said, "I am actor and I am married are two different things. Both of us (Siddharth and I) respect each other and our work."

The comedy directed by Rajkumar Gupta releases on June 21. This is Vidya's first film after her marriage. "This film is special in a way as its releasing after marriage. It was great working with Emraan this time," she said. The 35-year-old would be seen playing a Punjabi housewife in the film. "My character is loud, boisterous and she feels she knows everything. She wears her heart on the sleeve. It is first time I am attempting something like this," she said. The actress tied the knot with Siddharth Roy Kapur of UTV in December 2012.
