Vidya Balan to Vidya Balloon – the mega transformation of the Kahaani actor
From being pleasantly plump to ballooning all the way to VERY large and with that, portraying the best dirty pictures we have ever seen – Vidya Balan has been grabbing our attention for her amazing acting talent. And if that’s not enough, the lady is always in the news for her much-talked-about circularity!
We love Vidya Balan, absolutely unconditionally! The kind of talent she has and the spontaneity she displays as she transforms into a range of different characters in her movies make us adore Vidya even more. But there’s something inherent about our fave star’s personality – on screen and off it – that makes you forget and forgive the innumerable faux pas she commits in terms of her disastrous fashion sensibility.

What if Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had done Vidya Balan’s role in ‘Parineeta’?
We think the period romance would have been superficial and pretentious, just like the public image of the former beauty queen herself
At the recent week-long screening of films he has produced and directed Vidhu Vinod Chopra revealed to a room full of the media that the first face that popped into his head when he read the script of Parineeta was Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s. But Pradeep Sarkar, the ad filmmaker who was turning feature director with the project, was stuck like a broken record insisting that he would only cast the then far-less-curvy Vidya Balan in the title role.

Vidya Balan: I have no boundaries
The Dirty Picture actor has her priorities neatly laid out. And while her contemporaries are pretty gung-ho about tying the knot, Vidya would rather spend some more time with the movies
Vidya Balan, the leading lady of Kahaani doesn’t mind getting hitched, but it’s certainly not on her priority list. “My career is going good.

Does Vidya Balan have the Silk-y touch?
Can Vidya Balan be a good Silk Smitha on screen? We find out
There’s a lot being said about Vidya Balan and her ability to portray south seductresses like Silk Smitha and Polyester Padmini in the The Dirty Picture. When Milan Luthria first chose Vids for the role, it shocked all her fans as till then, she had a very girl-next-door image.

Vidya Balan’s belly goes ooo laa laaa…!
As men feast their eyes on Vidya’s curvaceous body and the women smirk at her jiggling tummy every time Ms B appears onscreen, we think about the transformation this babe has undergone over the years
Ms Balan has trudged a long way from being a sweet and innocent Bong babe in Parineeta, metamorphosing into a sensual, podgy woman in The Dirty Picture. But the tiresome trudging, however ironic it may sound, hasn’t helped Ms Balan shed those extra kilos. In fact, just like Kareena became the fitness trendsetter and coined the new size zero, Vidya took the same route and pioneered the new size 8 (no, wait, maybe 9…14?). Click here to read more
Ashok Kumar: Wish him on his 100th birth anniversary
The life and times of the ‘Dadamoni’ of Indian cinema
He was a shy man with average looks, definitely not the Bollywood type; yet destiny had other plans for Ashok Kumar who got into showbiz by chance and never looked back. As the late actor’s 100th birth anniversary dawns Thursday, film historians and fans remember the ‘Dadamoni’ of Indian cinema. Born in a Bengali family October 13, 1911, he did his schooling from Presidency College in Kolkata, and graduated in sciences and law. Not quite starry-eyed, he came to Mumbai in 1936 in search of a job. He got the role of a lab assistant in the newly established Bombay Talkies. But one day film director Himanshu Rai was furious with the lead actor of his film who had vanished without informing him. On the spur of the moment, he laid his eyes on Ashok and wanted the man as the lead in his film Jeevan Naiya. Click here to read more
