The reporter further prodded and asked, "For a glamorous role?"

Actress Vidya Balan who is now busy with the promotion of her upcoming film Tumhari Sulu was asked a question about her weight during a media interaction and the actress retorted with a ideal reply.

Vidya Balan will now star in Tumhari Sulu, the promotions of which are in full swing. The connection between being skinny and being glamorous, or even between not being glamorous and doing women-centric roles only exists because of patriarchal notions. "It'd be great if there could be a change in people's perception". The actress had earlier said in an interview that comments about her weight bothered her earlier, but now she had come to terms with such remarks.

Vidya Balan, who recently shot a video titled Taboo, feels that it is time to "re-look" at the attitude towards sex.

C-Series wings are made at Bombardier's Belfast operation, providing employment for about 1,000 people. The jet, the larger of two C Series versions, can carry 130 to 160 passengers.

However, it's really hard to change people's perspective who think a well toned up body of a woman can only be called glamorous.

The journalist said that we have been seeing Vidya in a lot of women-centric films. The film's story revolves around a homemaker who later discovers her talent as a radio jockey and then faces the twist and turns of life. They why the makers of the film chose Vidya? I am happy with the work I am now doing. The trailer has already left the audience wanting to see more of Vidya's antics.

Sadly, Youtube commenters seem to have a whole other point of view.
