Vidya Balan Personal Quotes

“Women are blessed with energy – a power which is unique. I have been very fortunate to have played strong women and explored their strengths through my films.”

“I have never thought of winning an Oscar. Rather, I never thought I would get the Padma Shri. I think God has been kind to me. I think getting Oscar award is not too far away.”

“I don’t think I’m competing with anyone. I don’t mean to sound Zen, but genuinely, when I stopped competing with anything is when I started enjoying my work and that brought out the best in me. I’m living in a universe of my own and I’m enjoying that. I love to appreciate other people’s work.”

“Weight used to be an issue. I was always fat as a child. And everyone used to tell me, You’ve got such a pretty face; why don’t you lose some weight? Over the years I’ve realised that my body is a certain type, and I have learned to accept it.”
