I was impressed by her, when I saw her in the serial Hum Paanch, almost fifteen-eighteen years ago. I missed her when she was replaced. Later after watching Parineeta, Vidya Balan suddenly became my first choice after Madhuri. I could not relate that Vidya is the same person whom I liked in the Hum Paanch long back. This secret has reveled to me much later. I was so excited that day and watched almost every episode of the serial, which included her, one after other, via you tube.
The personality of Vidya does not only represent the strong acting skills, but spreads the beauty of strong moral values, and dignity. She is successful, standing up in the male dominating industry, and growing even better and better with her every new film. Her awful presence, not only connect to the audience with her beautiful face and features, but her skills and attractive personality, and the charm, make the audience to hold up.
I like the fact that she did the verity of roles. No one is matching to other. Each film has left a unique impact. She has emerged as a true star, breaking all the rules of the typical bollywood industry. Rule number one, she entered, very late, and still, she is not only surviving but handling the whole movie on her own. Rule number two: Comparatively she has never appeared as sexy as the other girls on the typical films. Rather she has changed the meaning of fashion and style. She has accepted her shortcomings and came out as a complete package. If anybody in the world could do the “The Dirty Picture”, she was Vidya. No heroin, other than Vidya would have taken the film “Kahanee” to the success on the box office, only on her own, without a well known male face, without the hit glamorous songs, in a pregnant woman’s get up.
She is adorable even in a cheap dress, as she carries the character with honesty. She is genuine and does justice with the role. And surprisingly, she never dominates the other artist’s performance. If I need to describe Vidya , I would say: Vidya = Smita Patil+ Madhuri Dixit-Nene, + Kareena Kapoor +Priyanka Chopra. Surprised? Let me explain. With her strong acting skills, she reminds the great actress Smita Patil. With the hard work, commitment, and understanding of carrying a character, she looks like Madhuri. She is beautiful like Kareena and bold and confident like Priyanka. So while all other actresses in the industry are known for the unique characteristics, Vidya comes up with the complete package.
With the strong determination, Vidya has changes the definitions of being bold. She has drawn a completely fresh and new perspective on the “Compromise” and “Struggle” in the industry. I like her because “SHE DARES.”
