Valuing Myself is a constant challenge – Vidya Balan


Actress Vidya Balan attended The Outlook Business Women of Worth Awards on Thursday in Mumbai. While interacting with media, Vidya stated that valuing herself is a constant challenge.
“I don’t know what values I bring to the industry but I know that I am constantly working at valuing myself. I think as a woman that’s the biggest challenge. It is a constant challenge to value yourself and you have to constantly remind yourself because you are conditioned not to. The more I value myself, the happier I get and the happier I get, the happier my world around me is so it all comes back down to valuing the woman you are” said Vidya Balan, when asked about values she brings to the industry.
Vidya Balan doesn’t lack the imagination in portraying most cruel or loved avatars on screen, but lacks them in execution; hence she will never venture into writing, direction or production.
“I don’t think I am really imaginative. I can probably execute ideas better than have my own and also I don’t have discipline that requires to write as its very lonely process. I am someone who constantly seeks advice of someone. As far as, direction and production is concerned, no way. They have to handle whole lot of people and their ego’s. I want to be handled and I am not going to handle anyone”
“There is producer at home so we would be tearing apart our hair if both of us are producer. I enjoy being an actor. This what I always wanted to be and I am living my dreams so I don’t feel any need to venture into anything else”
Vidya Balan also quipped that she will stick with her guns, which is acting in coming future. She said, “I just want to keep acting in next 40 years. I hope universe is listening and I hope it’s going to respond appropriately because acting is what I enjoy doing. I decided to be an actor at the age of 8 therefore, it’s not going to change. I don’t have specific goals. I hope I enjoy everything that I do because success and failures are really not in my control”
Vidya Balan will next be seen in slice of life comedy drama, Tumhari Sulu, which also stars Manav Kaul, Neha Dhupia, RJ Malishka and Vijay Maurya in key roles. It is directed by Suresh Triveni.
It is scheduled to release on 17 November, 2017.
