Vidya Balan shocked over question about her weight

The reporter asked Vidya, "All your films that we have seen so far, have been women-centric films". The reporter asked, "Have you thought of losing weight for glamorous roles or want to continue doing women-centric films?"

Sure, male stars have higher footfalls and arguably see a much heightened level of fandom, but, if anything, Vidya Balan is the exception to this rule. Aage chal ke, aap women-centric filmon mein nazar aayengi ya phir aapne weight loss karne ka bhi kuch socha hai?

The movie cast of "Tumhari Sulu" includes Neha Dhupia, Manav Kaul and Malishka in main roles. "However, [referring to journalist] there should be a change in the mindsets of people like you [who fat-shame people]". The actress had earlier said in an interview that comments about her weight bothered her earlier, but now she had come to terms with such remarks. I'm quite head-strong. But I think it can really be sexist.

It's about time the media takes heed to Vidya's statement and brings about a change in its gaze. I am happy with the work I am now doing.

The story of the movie revolves around Vidya Balan's character Sulochana, who is a housewife but somehow wins a contest to become an RJ, this concept of middle-aged housewife becoming an RJ sounds good, it is something we have never seen before and as per the trailers, we can predict that this will be an entertaining movie. They why the makers of the film chose Vidya? The weird question left the actress visibly shocked.

Sadly, Youtube commenters seem to have a whole other point of view.

Did you like Vidya's reply?
