Like a Boss Vidya Balan shuts down a reporter for body shaming her


Vidya Balan has of late been busy promoting her upcoming film Tumhari Sulu which will hit the theatres on November 17. The film also stars Neha Dhupia, Manav Kaul and RJ Malishka in pivotal roles. Vidya has set new standards with films like Paa, Ishqiya, The Dirty Picture, and Kahaani to her credit and we’re sure Tumhari Sulu will be another feather in her cap. Vidya has always been breaking stereotypes and going by the promos, we can say that she’s done that in Tumhari Sulu as well.

Known for her amazingly bold self, Vidya gave it back to a reporter who fat shamed her at a recent event. Ahe reporter asked Vidya if she wanted to continue doing women-centric films or wanted to lose weight to fit into glamorous roles.  Vidya responded to this with a cool head and mentioned that there’s no connection between the two and that she is happy with the work she is doing. She also said that people’s mindsets need to change about weight-shaming.

We feel it’s incredible on Vidya’s part on how wonderfully she handled the situation and letting all women know out there that they’re beautiful in their own way. More power to you, Vidya!
