Vidya Balan asked if she will lose weight for 'glamorous' roles

Tumhari Sulu Vidya Balan asked if she will lose weight for 'glamorous' roles

When the reporter tried telling her that she needed to lose weight for "glamorous roles", she retorted, " I'm very happy with the work I'm doing.

A stunned Vidya asked the reporter to explain the connection between women-centric films and losing weight.

"Are you going to stick to doing "women-centric" roles?" The film's story revolves around a middle-aged housemaker Sulochona aka Sulu, who is a happy-go-lucky person with a mantra: "Sometimes you don't need wings to fly". But that hasn't deterred her from experimenting with different roles, and her next film Tumhari Sulu is no different.

There are several things wrong with the above exchange.

Vidya Balan, who recently shot a video titled Taboo, feels that it is time to "re-look" at the attitude towards sex. She was once called the Fourth Khan - due to her sheer popularity with films such as Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Kahaani and The Dirty Picture.

The journalist said that we have been seeing Vidya in a lot of women-centric films.

It stars Manav Kaul in the lead, who plays Vidya's on-screen husband.

Thirdly, consent and choice make all the difference here (even if you argue said reporter is merely naive and unaware, and not sexist). The actor have had to face such insensitive questions about weight loss plans earlier.

Sadly, Youtube commenters seem to have a whole other point of view.

All we have to say is, you do you, Vidya. The trailer has already left the audience wanting to see more of Vidya's antics.
