Having ruled the silver screen and won accolades, from both critics and audiences, for movies like ‘Parineeta’, ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Kahaani’, Vidya Balan had to bear failure with ‘Bobby Jasoos’ and ‘Ghanchakkar’.
As tough as it would have been, Vidya held her own even in those trying times and is now back with her new venture – Mohit Suri’s directorial ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’.
The movie’s trailer and title song have struck the right chord with the audiences as they can’t stop talking about Vidya’s vulnerable side in the movie. The National award winning actress also has a lot of expectations from the movie.
Ahead of the movie’s release, Vidya Balan, in an interview to Bollywoodlife.com, said that she was devastated when her movies stopped working suddenly. She said, “I didn’t understand why this was happening because all my films were doing well, people were praising me and suddenly, it stopped. I pray a lot generally and that point I even stopped praying. But during that time, my family really helped me. Talking to my family helped me a great deal and my sister and brother-in-law were there for me as well.”

Vidya Balan’s weight has always been a topic of discussion and she has been criticised for her fashion choices. But the talented actress opined that people should stay fit.
“There was a time when I used to be on a liquid diet because I had heard that one can lose weight that way. I started puking and falling ill. My mother saw this and finally hammered some sense into me. People come up to me and talk to me about my weight. In fact, just today, someone at lunch told me ‘You are so thin. On-screen, you don’t look this thin.’ I excused myself, came back to my room and had lunch. I don’t understand why someone has to tell you, ‘You look thin or fat.’ When people tell me I’ve lost weight, I don’t take it as a compliment. Now, I don’t even respond to it. I think we have started really obsessing over the way we look. I’m not asking anyone to NOT exercise. You should stay fit,” Vidya said.
In ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’, Vidya Balan will co-star with Rajkummar Rao and Emraan Hashmi with who she has previously worked in ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Ghanchakkar’. The movie releases in June.
