Vidya Balan on Her Weight
Vidya Balan unveiled how it started bothering her and there were days where her body would bloat up under pressure, “On the days I was under the pressure of looking my best, I would bloat up and I would be so angry and frustrated.”
But soon the skilled actress did realize that she needs to be happy about her body and that it is the existence and the functioning of her body that keeps her going, “I have a lot of gratitude for my body. It doesn’t matter what I have been through, I am alive because of this body. It’s blood and bones.”
