Vidya Balan reveals she sleepwalked through most of her commercial hits
Vidya Balan has served as an inspiration for a new generation of female actors who are demanding better roles and accepting characters that do justice to their skills. Often considered a feminist icon for her choice of films, Vidya Balan has been the reason behind many female actors believing that they could score top billing in a Bollywood movie. Now, the Sherni actress has revealed that she sleep-walked through most of her ‘commercial hits’ and when she realised that she wasn’t excited by the roles, she decided to sign films that creatively excited her.
“I didn’t feel that… I made my debut with Parineeta, which was an absolutely great film, a dream debut and it was an author-backed role, and some other roles that I did were fabulous,” the actress told an entertainment portal, adding: “But there were some roles that I did in the so-called commercial films, that I thought would be a cakewalk. So I didn’t put in any effort and I got criticised for it while the films did well. And that’s when I told myself – why did I sleepwalk through these films? And that’s when I realised it didn’t excite me. So, I decided to do films that excite me and that’s when Ishqiya was offered to me.”
Today, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that the actress has been invited to join their organisation along with powerful producers like Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor. The Academy also acknowledged her fabulous performances in Tumhari Sulu and Kahaani.
