Vidya Balan gives priceless answer on being called 'fat'

It was then that a reporter asked the actress about losing weight. Vidya is busy promoting her upcoming film "Tumhari Sulu". "From now on, will we see you in more such films, or have you thought about weightloss?" The actor have had to face such insensitive questions about weight loss plans earlier.

Vidya Balan: "What's the relationship between "women-centric" and weightloss?"

The question left Vidya shocked and she was quick in giving a strong response when she said: "I'm very happy with what I'm doing. However, [referring to journalist] there should be a change in the mindsets of people like you [who fat-shame people]".

There are several things wrong with the above exchange. No one should be expected to be skinny to be glamorous or be not-glamorous to be taken seriously in women-centric films.

This is the second time we will see Vidya Balan as an RJ on the big screen, after Rajkumar Hirani's Lage Raho Munnabhai.

Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is back with yet another interesting story. Since Vidya Balan's last films like Kahaani 2, Begum Jaan and Te3n failed to create magic at the ticket windows, Tumhari Sulu is indeed a crucial film for the 38-year old actress.

Secondly, in which universe is "women-centric" and "glamorous" mutually exclusive?

Thirdly, consent and choice make all the difference here (even if you argue said reporter is merely naive and unaware, and not sexist). Without going under a knife, Vidya has worked on her own terms. Yet the actress is subjected to questions that are downright insulting to her stature. Do share your views in the comments section below!
