Vidya Balan opened up about the worst experiences she has had to face in her film career, spanning fourteen years.
 

 

Vidya Balan's journey in Bollywood has been nothing less than a roller-coaster. Though she tasted success with her 2005 film Parineeta, she had several hits and misses along the way till Tumhari Sulu in 2017. Apart from Bollywood, the actress has tried her hand in films down South as well.
 
However, in an interview to an entertainment portal, Vidya revealed that the experience down South was not entirely rosy. "There were a lot of rejections down South. There were a lot of Malayalam films, but I was replaced in each of them. There was a Tamil film I was doing and I was thrown out of the film...I remember my parents had come with me because they were so worried about me...I had really begun to fade. We went to the producers office. The producer showed us the clippings from the film and he said, 'Just look at her, does she look like a heroine. He said 'I was not in favour of taking her at all, it was the director who insisted."
 
Vidya added, "They already had replaced me and my father after knowing that, called up the producer asking if they can meet because he wanted to know what was going wrong. They wanted to know what was the problem."
 
Vidya said that she had a difficult time dealing with the rejection. "I felt ugly...I felt like sh*t for months and I don't think I looked at myself in the mirror... I didn't like what I saw because I thought I was ugly...For the longest time, I did not forgive that man, but today, thanks to that I realized that I have to love and accept myself the way I am."
 
Sharing another nightmarish experience, Vidya said, "There was another Tamil film that was locked on the phone and it was not organised in the way that they are today...I didn't know any better so I was like ok and committed to doing the film. I land up in Chennai and I shot with him for a day and really felt uncomfortable with the kind of humour that was in the film. I left the film and then they sent me a legal notice."
 
Vidya Balan was last seen in the film Mission Mangal with Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Menen, Taapsee Pannu and Kirti Kulhari. The film crossed Rs 100 crore.
