Vidya Balan shocked over question about her weight

Vidya Balan on Tumhari Sulu co-star Manav Kaul No one could have played Ashok like him

Bollywood's power pack performer Vidya Balan is all geared up to entice the fans in Tumhari Sulu-a film directed by Suresh Triveni.

"Reporter: ".no, I mean, glamorous roles". Such questions say a lot about what's wrong with our society even today. However, the bold and the handsome Vidya Balan gave a savage reply that won our hearts.

Vidya, known for films like "Parineeta", "Paa" and "The Dirty Picture", feels it is time to "re-look" at the attitude towards sex. "Do you want to continue to be seen in women-centric films in the future, or have you thought about losing weight?"

To which the shocked actress replied, "What does weight loss have to do with woman-centric roles?"

More than 15000 scientists issue 'warning to humanity'
The message updates an original warning sent from the Union of Concerned Scientists 25 years ago and backed by 1700 signatures. During their presentation, the team representing the administration was heckled and interrupted by a protest song .

Vidya Balan: "No, I'm very happy with the kinds of roles I am doing. It would be great if you could change your mindset".

However, it's really hard to change people's perspective who think a well toned up body of a woman can only be called glamorous. In the initial phase of my career, I did face a fair amount of sexism. I am happy with the work I am now doing. The male actor would always get a bigger van, a bigger hotel. Yet the actress is subjected to questions that are downright insulting to her stature.

Vidya Balan starrer "Tumhari Sulu" is just about to release and the promotions of the movie are going on in a big way.

The story of the movie revolves around Vidya Balan's character Sulochana, who is a housewife but somehow wins a contest to become an RJ, this concept of middle-aged housewife becoming an RJ sounds good, it is something we have never seen before and as per the trailers, we can predict that this will be an entertaining movie.
