Vidya Balan stepped out into the city keeping it casual. Her style statement is always either classic or casual. Even though she was often bodyshamed for not being skinny enough, Vidya has always given it back to her haters. In an interview she had said due to her hormonal problems, she would even try starving herself at points. She had spoken about bodyshaming, saying, “I have had a hormonal problem all my life. When I was a teenager, people would tell me, ‘You have got such a pretty face, why don’t you lose some weight?’ When people tell me why don’t you start exercising, I want to say f**k you! How do you know I haven’t been exercising? Do you know how hard I exercise? Do you know what challenges I have been facing in my life?”
She has never been one to mince words. The Kahaani and No One Killed Jessica star is a versatile actress and an outspoken person. She even gave a statement about banning Pakistani artists from India when the Pulwama incident happened. She said, "Though I have always believed that art should be kept away from all boundaries and politics, I think we have to take a stand now. Enough is enough." She continued saying, "As an individual I believe that there is no better way to bring people together than arts, be it music, poetry, dance, theatre, cinema or any other art form. But this time I think we should just take a break from this practice and see what can be done for the future. As I said, some tough calls have to be taken at some point." Check out her pictures here.
She was recently seen in Tumhari Sulu and would be soon be seen playing a Mathematics wizard Shakuntala Devi in an upcoming biopic. Shakuntala Devi was also known as “the human computer” in India. Born in Bengaluru in 1929 she discovered her mathematical abilities while teaching her a card game when she was three years old. In an interview with Rajeev Masand, Vidya had spoken about how women begin to 'care less' with age. “Women become naughtier and hotter after 40. Generally, we’re taught to be a little coy and not enjoy sex. But the reason they say women get better with age is that you care less and less, it’s more about you. It’s joyous. When you do not care, you have the most amount of fun," she said.
