Actress Vidya Balan recently seen in ‘Tumhari Sulu’.
She has successfully changed the idea of the quintessential Indian heroin through her choice of projects, which she revealed always had a “personal connect”.
The actress says, “Every film or role that I have done has had some personal connect. All these women characters follow their heart and do exactly what they want to do and in a way, they were all an extension of me.”
Vidya, who is known for portraying strong protagonists, has given something new to the audience each time, be it through her debut film Parineeta or her recent release ‘Tumhari Sulu’.
Talking about her decision to favour female-centric projects, Vidya said, “I am a shy person. There are two sides to me when the actor side comes out, I am different. I can do anything for the character but as a person, I am quite shy.”
She had won National Award for Best Actress for playing Silk Smitha in 2011’s The Dirty Picture.
Vidya has recently got the rights for Sagarika Ghose’s book titled Indira-India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister, and she’s thrilled about portraying the former prime minister.–CINEWS
