After Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Vidya Balan honoured with Padma Shri award!
Yogen Shah

Professionally 2013 wasn’t a great year for the Oh la la girl but the actor will still walk away with Padma Shri award this year

Vidya Balan has been selected for the prestigious Padma Shri award which is India’s fourth highest civilian award. After winning the National Award in 2012 for her critically acclaimed film The Dirty Picture, this is another huge milestone for Sidharth Roy Kapur’s wifey. Though last year Vidya starrer Ghanchakkar failed to impress the audience and critics alike,  in the past few years the starlet has given  brilliant performances in films like Paa, Ishqiya, No One Killed Jessica and Kahaani. Vidya, who started her acting career with television show Hum Paanch, has certainly come a long way. so wethinks this award well deserved. Besides Vids, veteran actor Paresh Rawal will also receive the Padma Shri award. The Oh My God actor-producer has been in industry for a long time and we are glad that he will be conferred with the coveted Padma award for his immense contribution in the field of cinema.

President Pranab Mukherjee will present the Padma Shri award to these two eminent personalities of Bollywood at a function which will be held at Rashtrapati Bhavan around March or April.

        you guys are being too nice to her!
        If she did well in movies she was paid for that–she is a professional and not an amateur–so why was padma shri awarded to her—perhaps she showed her skin to the liking of the concerned politicians who saw her Dirty Picture!

    I think Vidya deserves this award and i am happy for that. She is better than compared to Priyanka or any other actor in bollywood today. I feel all female actor show their skin and this award is not given for showing skin but for her dedication and her hard work. In today’s male dominating bollywood industry and mostly ruled by Khans, Kapoors, it’s good to see that Great actors like Vidya, Paresh rawal are awarded. Totally i am happy :)
