In a Films business that changes every Friday and a profession that relies heavily on outward appearances, Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has never shied away from calling spade an spade. Vidya Balan’s tackled body shaming like a boss, and in the process, inspired many others Celebrities to follow suit.
The actress Vidya Balan, who doesn’t mince words when it comes to addressing body problems and issues, has opened up about her journey, hard-work and everything that made her realise that it’s all about being comfortable in her own Body skin.
In a recently interview with Indian Media Hindustan Times, the actress opened up the time she developed self doubt, part of which was because of the very heavy criticism that came her way. There was time when she was very angry with her own body and wanted to change her own body.
Vidya balan has been quoted as saying, (There was) a part of my life, I was in an battle with my own body. I was angry with it, hated it, and I wanted it to change my body, because I thought if my body changed, then I would be acceptable to every-peoples. I would be worthy of love.
Vidya Balan further added that even when she lost weight and was at her thinnest, she realised not every-man still fully accepts her. But even at my thinnest, when I managed to lose a lots of weight it happened a few times, I realised that I wasn’t fully acceptable to everyone. Vidya says, So really there’s no point in trying to change yourself to suit others’ needs and ideals,” Vidya Balan told the publication.
Calling that a “long journey”, Vidya balan further shared that it was after that realisation that Vidya balan found herself more accepting of herself, happier and beautiful. Vidya told the daily, I think the best gift I have given to myself is that I won’t let everyone make me feel differently about my own body today.
On the film front, Vidya Balan will next Bollywood star in Mission Mangal, alongside Bollywood Actor Akshay Kumar in a lead role.
