Vidya Balan: An Oscar is not too far away

The Shaadi Ke Side Effects actor has won hearts and awards with her acting. And here’s what she has to say about awards

National Award and Padma Shri awardee Vidya Balan, who has proved her versatility in film after film, is happy with the kind of films and roles she has been getting and says that, as long as she will get good films, an Oscar is not too far from her.

The actor was present at a press meet for Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2014, and when she was asked about winning an Oscar in the future, she said, “I have never thought of winning an Oscar. I had not even thought of winning Padma Shri someday.”

“And as long as I am assured of good films, then an Oscar is also not too far away,” she added.

However, the 36-year-old is content with the film opportunities she has been getting. “I think life has been very very kind. I am just happy with all the love and appreciation coming my way,” said Vidya, known for her power-packed performances in the films, Paa, Ishqiya, The Dirty Picture and Kahaani.

Meanwhile, Vidya is happy with the response to her latest release Shaadi Ke Side Effects. Soon, she will be seen in another film Bobby Jasoos.
