Vidya Balan's Father's REACTION To 'The Dirty Picture' was PRICELESS..!

Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan's name will go in history for the way she switched gears from doing films like Parineeta, No One Killed Jessica, Paa and Lage Raho Munna Bhai to the path breaking 'The Dirty Picture'. The actress has caused quite a stir by signing on the dotted line for an eyebrow-raising film like that. 

Vidya, whose remarkable performance in the biopic of the controversial Indian actress Silk Smitha won her a National Award and a Filmfare Award for the best actress of the year, had taken a few months to prepare for the role.

On the occasion of 'Father’s Day' yesterday, Vidya Balan shared a video on Twitter wherein her 71-year-old father P. R. Balan, who had encouraged her to take up the role in The Dirty Picture. The video met with a tremendous response on the social media.

Speaking about the challenging role, she said, "When I was considering doing The Dirty Picture, I sat my parents down and I told them (that) there would be a lot of skin show. I knew what I was doing, and I enjoyed doing it, but I needed to know how they were going to react. I did a family preview of the film".

Her father, P. R. Balan voiced, "Before the start (of the film), she just announced…it's a bold movie, so..That's all. But we didn't find anything awkward watching this movie at all. And everybody endorsed-'Yes, she has got into the character so well'. By God's grace, it went on really to be a hit, and she won the National award for that. I, as a father, felt extremely happy and proud."

Vidya Balan added, "He clapped in front of everyone. When they said that to me. I felt like -OK, now it doesn't matter what the world says. That vote of confidence…was priceless."

Towards the end of the video, she voices, "I wish every girl in the world had a father like you Appa. Priya (her sister) and I are really blessed and fortunate to have a father who’s just let us be ourselves. We are because you are."

It is truly a tearjerking video, check it out here...
