Vidya Balan: Each film I do is a new baby

Vidya Balan is one of the best actresses in the Hindi film industry and has carved a niche for herself in Indian cinema. With notable films like The Dirty Picture, Kahaani and Tumhari Sulu, Vidya has proved time and again that she is one of the most talented actresses in Bollywood.

As she will be turning 39 on January 1, 2018, a leading Indian daily asked her about her thoughts on her upcoming birthday, to which the actress said, “Since I’m turning 39, I’ve been telling my friends that I want to do something crazy, as this is my last birthday before the landmark 40. And I’m quite a bore when it comes to these things, so I’m waiting for them to organize something crazy. Let’s see who comes up with a fun idea — my friends or my husband Siddharth (Roy Kapur).”

Having being married to Siddharth Roy Kapoor for 5 years, Vidya was asked about her plans on motherhood, she said, “Oh, I have no time for a baby. Each film I do is a new baby; [so], I have 20-odd babies (laughs). Right now, I’m focused on doing more and good work.”

Talking about New Year resolutions, Vidya believes in simply enjoying the day. 2017 witnessed Vidya’s mind-blowing performance in Tumhari Sulu which not only garnered positive response from the critics but also received praises from the audience.

“This year has proved that nothing works as well as content does. Of course, when great content is backed by a great director and a great star, it’s a great combination. But it’s time we understood that only big stars don’t guarantee anything, anymore,” Vidya said.
