MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Vidya Balan has said that she had struggled most of her life to enjoy a successful transition from small screen to Bollywood.
“Looking at my career graph, I feel nothing short of gratitude. And I’m glad that I can owe all this success to myself. It’s my love for myself that motivated me. My faith in myself and then, my family and friends helped me come this far in my career,” said the Kahaani actor in an interview.
The 38-year-old rose to fame with films such as Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), Paa (2009), Ishqiya (2010) said there’s always been some external force that guarded her.
“At different points in my personal and professional life, there have been different ‘maseeha’ who came into my life and encouraged me to do better, and not give up despite all odds. It’s this journey that has helped me discover myself,” said the actor, who won the National Award for her film The Dirty Picture (2011).
When asked about why she follows selective people, the Bhool Bhulaiyya actor said, “Maybe that’s the reason I don’t follow too many people on social media. And, trust me, I don’t feel I’m missing on anything. In a way, it’s good that I don’t know what’s happening.”
