After the massive success on her latest release, Mission Mangal, Vidya Balan has been applauded a lot for her striking role in the film. But, amidst the success regime are arising the pregnancy rumours of Vidya and the actor seems to get connected with being plump.
Bollywood actor Vidya Balan has quite recently emerged back to Bollywood after her sabbatical in Mission Mangal. Last the actor was seen in Tumhari Sulu in 2017 and earned a lot of appraise for the film. The actor was currently a part of an ensemble cast in Mission Mangal apart from the other prime actors including Tapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari and Sonakshi Sinha.
Talking about her role in the film and the efforts that took her to this height on a popular media platform, she said, “It was a mission in itself and it was fantastic. I worked with a bunch of girls in Begum Jaan but in Mission Mangal we are talking about stars in their own right and accomplished actors. What was amazing was that they came on the sets with a sense of security which was really admirable. There was an easy flow between us. I didn’t particularly know any of them. I worked with Akshay (Kumar) after a long time but it felt as if nothing had changed even though it’s been 12 years. He is still very mischievous. He would say ‘sabse badmaash tu hai’, and I would reply ‘I have learnt from the best’.
The actor, who has recently celebrated her 40th birthday, however has simply refused the rumours talking about her pregnancy.
Talking over the rumours, Vidya said, “People who think I am pregnant are stupid. I wear loose clothes and I have never been this happy in my life. This is my body. If they think that then I have been pregnant all my life. What changes with age, experience and maturity is that you are less hard on yourself. The more accepting you are about this yourself, the happier life becomes.”
Talking to the same media platform, Vidya even threw light on the question of mid-life crisis, saying, “Mid-life crisis is for men. Women go through it (a crisis) every month. I believe that women go through a tough time after menopause. They can no longer deal with the fact that they aren’t menstruating. It’s a lot of emotional anxiety with the change. Everything is changing so I think this will also become seamless after some time. At least, we are open and talking about it. My aunts didn’t even know about this. A male friend of mine who is unmarried and a commitment-phobe says that women post 35 are more exciting than when they are young. I think we have enough experience under our belts by that age.”
She further added that she has never aspired to get into the zero figure, “I have always been plump so I have given up the fight against weight issues. Men always expect that women should be young only then is she considered desirable to men.”
