Vidya has often been under the radar of trolls for her weight gain. At an event recently, the actor opened up about some stories where she shut down the trolls with some befitting replies. Sharing one such story Vidya revealed how an actor came up to her questioning her plans to lose weight. She was quoted saying, “An actor came up to me and asked me, ‘So when are you going to lose weight?’ and I wanted to say whenever you get a brain transplant’ but obviously I couldn’t say that.”
“I said I’m not planning to and she asked me why comparing my look from Parineeta. And I find it very ridiculous all the time. When someone says to me ‘you’ve lost weight,’ I never say ‘thank you’. I don’t treat it as a compliment. Just because of the way a body looks or is seen, you cannot make a judgment on a person’s appearance,” the actor added.
Vidya also revealed how one of her award speeches was received wrongly by everyone. Vidya had received the best actress award for her performance in the film Kahani. During her award speech, the actor drew a reference that earlier she got an award for her film Paa while playing a mother. And she jokingly mentioned it to her hubby Siddharth Roy Kapur saying, “it works this way”.
Vidya’s joke was received wrongly by people as many of them started questioning her about her pregnancy. And every time the actor had to shut them down with some good comebacks.
On the work front, Vidya was last seen in the film Shakuntala Devi which received mixed reviews.
