Vidya Balan: Padma Shri was a wonderful surprise!

Bindaas Balan’s bold on screen avatar and varied roles on silver screen has earned her one of the most coveted awards

Vidya Balan received Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award today. The actor who has played different roles in films like Paa, Kahaani, No One Killed Jessica and The Dirty Picture was elated and said, “Everyone is feeling very happy and proud. As for me, I’m just feeling grateful. With a film award, there is a nomination process, so you know there’s a possibility. Here, there was nothing of the sort. It was a wonderful surprise.”

Vidya started her career in Bollywood later than her contemporaries, but soon rose to fame carrying films on her shoulder. The actor is currently on a break and the buzz doing rounds suggest that Ms Balan is pregnant. She lost out on Sujoy Ghosh’s film to Kangana Ranaut.

We at BollywoodLife wish Vidya many many congratulations!
