Was called 'not conventional', everyone questioned what a regular Chembur girl will do in the film industry: Vidya Balan


In the jungle of Bollywood, Vidya Balan is a Sherni, always on the prowl for the best roles. The 42-year-old actress is vocal about her age as it helps her to play any character on-screen, willing to do a la-Kate Winslet in 'Mare of Easttown', how the parts she plays often call out the sexism in society & blurring the lines between female-centric films and male-dominated cinema.

In an exclusive interview with PeepingMoon, Vidya recalls the days of being called a misfit in Bollywood without a godfather and tells why her Amazon Prime OTT release Sherni is genre-agnostic. the actress also whole-heartedly admits finding rishtas for brother-in-law Aditya Roy Kapur via her IG!
