Vidya Balan is one actress, who is constantly in the news over her choice of attire.
The actress is often given a hard time by the fashion police and have branded her style “old” and “boring”. A few years ago, Balan was criticised for her choice of outfits at the Cannes Film Festival, which was the working of Sabyasachi Mukherjee. At the time, he said, “Vidya doesn’t like to experiment much. She’s happy the way she is, and there is no harm in that.”
Talking now about her dress sense and her relationship with Mukherjee, Balan told SpotBoye, “I think Sabyasachi is one of the most talented designers in the country. I have worn him a lot but post Cannes (pauses)… I don’t know if I can call it a fallout, but we have not been in touch. Not that anything has happened, but… it’s unfortunate.”
She added, “A lot was said about my fashion sense back then. However, with time, the acceptance of my own body and therefore the confidence that comes with it has only been growing. It was a slow process. It started happening around Pa and Ishqiya. I have begun to care less and less about what anyone has to say.”
Balan is currently in the midst of promotions for ‘Begum Jaan’ out next month.
