Vidya Balan is one actress who has always loved to do women-centric movies. Be it Dirty Pictures or No One Killed Jessica, all the roles portrayed by the actress were meaningful and showcased a strong woman’s character. Even her debut movie Parineeta opposite Saif Ali Khan revolved around her character and proved that Vidya Balan is a very strong actress.
She is once again in the limelight as her upcoming movie Shakuntala Devi will now be released on OTT due to the pressure caused by the lockdown. Vidya’s short film Natkhat has a North Indian backdrop that has control of masculinity to its core. The movie is a brutal take on the overall scenario of male superiority and how Vidya’s character takes control of her young son’s grooming.
The actress has always been quite open when it comes to criticizing things that are going around her or about any movie that she thinks has not been up to the mark.

According to the Mission Mangal actress, there are people like Kabir Singh in society and Shahid as an actor was only portraying it. That does not mean as if he was supporting the character’s behaviour. Vidya does believe that if such characters are there then what is wrong in showing them on the big screen? Vidya Balan and Shahid Kapoor were rumoured to be dating each other at the time of their movie Kismet Konnection. Vidya was quite upset by the behaviour of Shahid after the breakup and until now avoided talking about him.
