Vidya Balan is an Indian film actress known as one of the pioneers in changing the image and concept of Hindi film heroine with her strong female protagonist roles. Starting her career with independent Bengali drama Bhalo Theko (2003), Vidya established herself as a brilliant actress. She then made her Hindi film debut with director Pradeep Sarkar’s Parineeta (2005), which was a huge critical success. Eventually, she starred in Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) opposite Sanjay Dutt, and the film went on to become a blockbuster. Vidya’s performance was praised in whichever film she did including Guru (2007), Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love (2007), Eklavya: The Royal Guard (2007) and Heyy Babyy (2007). However, she was initially criticized for her body and dressing sense but was later appreciated by the same naysayers as “unconventional” actress who does not fit in the stereotype.
Vidya gave a series of hits and received wide critical acclaim with Paa (2009), Ishqiya (2010), No one killed Jessica (2011), The Dirty Picture (2011) and Kahaani (2012). She has many accolades to her basket with five Filmfare awards, five Screen awards, a National Film Award and Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian award.
