Vidya Balan’s Story
In her recent interview, she surprised the fans with the answer, she wanted to give, when somebody ask her to lose weight. Vidya said, I want to say f**k you, don’t ask about my weight. She said, “I’ve had hormonal problems all my life. It’s probably because of the judgment I’ve carried around my body. When I was a teenager, people would tell me, ‘you’ve got such a pretty face, why don’t you lose some weight?’ It’s not a nice thing to say to anyone. Be it a child or a grown-up. So, I’d starve myself, I’d go through crazy exercise regimens and lose weight.
The actress said that even when were on dieting and not eating much, even then she looks fat. She said that she is fed up from, the words, “Weight loss, weight gain, weight loss, weight gain was my pattern for as long as I can remember. Years ago, I stopped watching my shots on the monitor at shoots because I’d look at the monitor and be thinking, ‘Am I looking fat?”
Vidya said that it has taken a lot of work to accept her body. She said, “When people tell me why you don’t start exercising, I want to say f**k you! How do you know I haven’t been exercising? Do you know how hard I exercise? Do you know what challenges I’ve been facing?
