Vidya Balan: “I love my body”
It’s fair to say Vidya Balan is an empowering woman. Having changed the way actresses can be portrayed on screen, she has always been one to stand up against body-shaming.
Having dealt with criticisms about her own body and fashion sense, Balan seems to be in a great place. “It’s my body, I love my body. It doesn’t matter what people say. Different people will have different things to say. If I look into the mirror and I am happy with what I am wearing, I would just step out. And then I don’t care about what anyone has to say about it,” Hindustan Times reports the actress stating.
She went on to add, “Over the course of time, I have realised that you can’t please everyone. The world out there will never be happy with you, so you may as well be happy with yourself. The fact that I don’t follow any of the entertainment portals, channels, news or fashion blogs, I don’t watch any of it, neither do I listen to it on radio… I think it really helps retain my sanity.”
Balan even spoke about social media, “Even on Twitter, I am very selective and don’t follow random people. Once in a while when I feel like interacting, I chat on Twitter. Otherwise, I am largely posting pictures on Instagram.”
Talking about what she is into, the actress went on to say, “I like most things done funny. Humour is a great way of saying things you really want to say without offending anyone. It’s asking people to shut up without actually using the words ‘shut up’.”
