Vidya Balan steals the show in quirky new poster of 'Tumhari Sulu'

Actress Vidya Balan who is now busy with the promotion of her upcoming film Tumhari Sulu was asked a question about her weight during a media interaction and the actress retorted with a flawless reply.

"Humne aapki jitni bhi filmein dekhi hai, saari women-centric hai". Do you think this role can not be played by a woman with a lean body? The reporter asked Vidya if she has thought about losing weight in order to fit into more glamorous roles, to which Balan said she was happy with the kind of roles she was getting and reporters like them needed to change their perception. It was then that a reporter asked the actress about losing weight. "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.

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.

Discovering gravitational waves from very big black hole crash using pulsars
Pulsars are dense neutron stars that rapidly rotate, emitting electromagnetic signals like clockwork. The researchers say pulsars are key to tapping into the songs of these intergalactic Barry Whites.

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.

Once called the fourth Khan of Bollywood, Vidya Balan had everyone bowing down to the powerhouse of talent that she is.

Thirdly, consent and choice make all the difference here (even if you argue said reporter is merely naive and unaware, and not sexist). Whether Vidya Balan chooses to lose weight, or put on weight, or do glamorous roles is her prerogative.

All we have to say is, you do you, Vidya. More power to you.
