In her fourteen years of Bollywood, Vidya Balan has essayed a variety of roles, with several hits and misses. If she stunned her audience as the demure Lolita in Parineeta, she wowed them with her sensuality in The Dirty Picture. The actress has broken stereotypes time and time again with her choice of roles, and her don’t-carish attitude about looks.
Bollywood star Vidya Balan has revealed that she used to starve herself due to hormonal problems during her childhood.
In an interview with an Indian entertainment portal, The Dirty Picture narrated the societal battles she had to fight to present the perfect figure and her unique sense of style.
“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’ve been facing?
It has taken a lot of work to accept her body, she said.
“Do you know that my hormonal problem has made it impossible for me to lose weight for years in between? Not just that, there was a period in between when the more I’d work out, the more I’d put on? People would insinuate that you must be eating unhealthy or that you’re lazy. And these things stick with you. It would anger me no end. I kept wanting people to stop judging me. But over time, I realised that people judge you/your body only if you do.
On the work front, it is reported that Vidya will star in the biopic of famous mathematician Shakuntala. It is also reported that Sanya Malhotra will play the role of her daughter in the film.
