Yes, you read it right! One of the most highly acclaimed actresses of Bollywood, Vidya Balan talks about how the judgement of family members and close friends affect the lives of women. She feels that people need to get over the 'stereotypical' notion about looks and think beyond that.
"We need to overcome stereotypical notions which do not allow ambitions to grow... I love wearing sarees but people have asked me why do you dress older than your age. I tell them I love sarees and will continue wearing them. It's not about driving home a point or feminism but just being true to yourself."

"Now with the social media this has increased as friends with whom you spoke to ten years ago are also commenting on your looks, " she added. Well, it is really awful that even after achieving so much in life, a few people dare to judge her, and that too, on the basis of her looks and dressing sense. But Vidya's befitting reply on such stereotypes, is way too awesome.
Vidya Talks About Banning Women From Entering Temples:
"It is great that we are asking these questions now. Men and women should get equal opportunity at work, social life and everywhere," asserted the National award-winning actress.
"We are saying how unfair it is... I think we will see the changes in our lifetime," Balan told reporters when asked to comment on the controversy over the entry of women in some temples of South India.
She added, "I think we women have created a lot of barriers for ourselves. There are some professions which we have reserved only for males. Women are there only in the background."
