The connection between being skinny and being glamorous, or even between not being glamorous and doing women-centric roles only exists because of patriarchal notions.
Vidya Balan: "What's the relationship between "women-centric" and weightloss?"
Visibly annoyed with the question, the actor who has been in her character ever since the release of the trailer of the movie, very politely replied, "I am very happy doing the kind of work I am doing and it will be really great if you people can change your mentality". (All your films have been wome-centic so far, have yuu thought about losing weight in future?), the reporter asked. The film's story revolves around a middle-aged housemaker Sulochona aka Sulu, who is a happy-go-lucky person with a mantra: "Sometimes you don't need wings to fly". No one should be expected to be skinny to be glamorous or be not-glamorous to be taken seriously in women-centric films. Vidya is known for her content-driven films and has always been forthcoming with her own challenge with body weight.
'Does India need bullet train?', asks Quora user, Piyush Goyal responds
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Tuesday, Goyal, who has maintained an active existence on social media platforms took to Quora this time to address his audience.
Vidya Balan made her acting debut with TV show Hum Paanch.
Now, as we know this is not the first time Vidya will play an RJ on screen, earlier in 2006 she played an RJ in "Lage Raho Munna Bhai" but that was different and this is different. As journalists, we can ask her questions, sure, but to put a mike on someone's face and ask them about weightloss is just plain insensitive.
Sadly, Youtube commenters seem to have a whole other point of view. More power to you.
