Was worried what my parents think after seeing me in Dirty Picture: Vidya Balan

Bollywood actress has carved her own niche by giving some memorable performances in films like Kahaani, Paa, The Dirty Picture, Tumhari Sulu and many others. Fans praised her performance in The Dirty Picture, where she portrayed the character of actress Silk Smitha and even bagged the National Award for her role. Though in a recent interview, Vidya revealed that he was quite worried about how parents will react to it as she told E Times, “We have had support; we were never judged. For example, during the screening of ‘The Dirty Picture’, I was worried about how they would react and was waiting outside the screening room during the interval. But when they came out of the screening, my father actually clapped and said, ‘I didn’t see my daughter anywhere in the film’. And my mother cried when the movie ended. Firstly, it was tough for her to see me die on-screen. But most importantly, she said that not for a moment did she feel that I looked cheap, which was a huge compliment coming from her. Because there is a thin line between being sexy and sleazy. But I think, for that, I am grateful to the people I have worked with.”

Speaking about her upbringing, she added, “We were just allowed to be us. More importantly, we were never held back from anything because we were girls. And that’s the most precious thing about our upbringing. My sister Priya is four years elder than me. Both of us have done whatever we wanted to do in our lives, be it professionally or personally. Even at times when we feared our parents’ reaction, we were honest with them because they treated us as individuals. Both my parents deserve equal credit but more so my father. He could have ended up being patriarchal, but he did not, and I am very proud of him.”
