Who does Vidya Balan idolise?

The ‘Ooh la la’ girl, who has been picking up trophies at almost every award ceremony, says that she idolises veteran actor Rekha

It’s raining awards for Vidya Balan this year and the actor has been the toast of every award show, thanks to her performances in last year’s No One Killed Jessica and of course, The Dirty Picture. And her sari-clad appearances are now being compared to that of Rekha. Vidya, who was quite flattered by those comparisons, said, “This is the biggest compliment. I am inspired by Rekha. She is who she is and I have always admired her. When she was doing films, she was doing commercial as well as non-commercial films. She has been an inspiration on that front.”  Vidya has yet another power-packed performance lined up in the form of Kahaani and we are most likely to see the actor in her classic avatar at several award shows next year too.
