You don’t need to belong to some star khandan, be tall, fair and skinny or the most beautiful woman, to be the queen of Bollywood. We have learnt that lesson after Vidya Balan came into the picture. She may not be the best dressed but she is definitely someone who has taught us how to love ourselves the way we are. Today, i.e. January 1st she turns 3 and we will tell you how she made hay while the sun shone. Happy birthday Vidya Balan!
Vidya Balan has established herself as a successful actress Bollywood and has received one National Film Award, five Filmfare Awards, and five Screen Awards. She is known for portraying strong female protagonists and has been acknowledged in the media for breaking stereotypes of a Hindi film heroine.
Vidya aspired to be an actress from a very young age, and had her first acting role in the 1995 sitcom Hum Paanch. She made her debut in 2005 with the critically acclaimed the musical drama Parineeta, and followed it with a leading role in the highly successful comedy film Lage Raho Munna Bhai. This initial success was followed by roles in the romantic comedies Heyy Babyy and Kismat Konnection which met with negative comments from the critics.
The year 2009 marked the beginning of the most successful period in Vidya’s career. She portrayed roles that were bold and strong, woman centric. Paa, Ishqiya, No One Killed Jessica, The Dirty Picture, Kahaani, these roles established her as a leading actress of Bollywood and earned her the tag of a “female hero”.
Vidya was always been under the scanner for her dressing. She initially drew criticism for her fluctuating weight and “questionable” dress sense. She has an Indian body and face but nver shyed away from experimenting. She tried and failed but never gave up. Then Sabyasachi came to her rescue and since then there has been no looking back. He can make her look cute, sexy, bold and beautiful in his creations. She is seen most of the times in the 6 yards. 6 yards of grace!
Vidya Balan has never had a spicy personal life. There were rumors of her being in a relationship with Shahid Kapoor, but both refused to acknowledge it and the buzz eventually died. Now she is married to Siddharth Roy Kapoor for over a year now whom she dted for a few years before tying the knot!
