Vidya Balan has played a long list of bold characters over the years; and this time arounf the versatile actress will be seen in her element in the upcoming film Tumhari Sulu, slated for release on November 17 in Pakistan.
Recently in an interview, the star spoke about her film and how people are criticizing her about her age and weight. She said and we quote;
“I have always been a casual dresser and even when I was studying, I would wear jeans with kurtas and basic cotton shalwar kameez. I did try out different styles of dressing at the onset of my acting career because people kept telling me that this is the way a heroine should dress. But those looks never really worked for me and I feel much more comfortable now that I wear clothes that are an extension of my personality.”
“Truthfully, I don’t obsess too much about what to wear and simply just select clothes that suit me. And yes, I am proud of my skin colour and for looking my age. I have the skin of a 38 year old and that’s fine by me.”
Vidya, who has been appreciated for her roles in films such as The Dirty Picture (2011) and Kahaani (2012), says she doesn’t have fixed factors to consider while coming on board with a project. “There is no set parameter that I use to decide which role I want to play. I go purely by instinct. It depends on how I react to the character that I am being offered and then the overall film. After that I look at the director and the producer,” she says.
