Vidya Balan Says Society Tends To Finds Flaws In Women So That They Do Not Fly High. She’s So Right!
It’s 2019 and by now we can gladly say that Bollywood has changed for good in many ways. Movies with women in lead are no longer relegated to corners, they are mainstream and they are raking in the money. Despite theses changes, we do see a side of Bollywood that typecasts actresses, offering them versions of a role they’ve done well, once. So, if an actress is doing a comedy film she is constantly offered these roles, confining her to a box. Well, this this needs to change too and actress Vidya Balan feels the same. And we get it.
Vidya Balan is known for living her life on her own terms. Be it her choices of films or the decisions she takes in her personal life, Vidya has showed that she has a mind of her own. Vidya Balan has done plenty films in various genres in Bollywood and some of her characters have stayed with us long after the reels left the projection room. The Kahani actress is currently gearing up for her next big release, Mission Mangal alongside a huge-on-acting-prowess star cast. So while Vidya was promoting her film, she gave an interview where she opened up on her weight loss-gain journey and also how women get typecast in whatever they do.
Vidya Balan said, “When an actress does five scenes and three songs in a film, people start saying she only does fluffy stuff and no serious roles. When she does substantial roles in serious films or female-centric films, she gets the tag of a serious actress. When I lost weight, people start saying I had lost my charm. I’d wonder how can they say that, because I had worked really hard to lose weight. I think society tends to find flaws in women so that they do not fly high.”
