Vidya Balan on self-love journey: 'my size has never mattered to me in front of the camera'

Vidya Balan talked about her journey of self love at a film festival in Goa and said that her ‘size has never mattered to her when she faces the camera.’

Vidya at IFFI 2023
In conversation with actor-politician Vani Tripathi Tikoo during a masterclass on Women and Glass Ceiling at the 54th IFFI in Goa, Vidya said, “I had realised I was only sending hate towards my body. I was constantly saying it, ‘You are not what I want you to be’. And therefore, I was constantly falling sick. I started working with a healer 12 years ago and I realised that you are abusing the very thing that’s keeping you alive.”

She added, “It has been a gamechanger since then, because today, however I wake up in the morning, I feel good about myself, and on days I don’t, I then tell myself, ‘It’s okay, tomorrow will be a new day. Let me live with what I am feeling today’. Sometimes, your body also expresses your emotions whether you feel tired, angry, jealous, grateful, hurt, tearful or whatever, but that doesn’t make you smaller. I had started to feel small in my bigness, and that’s ridiculous. It was almost like I was cowering.”


“My size has never mattered to me when I face the camera. I love the camera so much I trust it so much that I believe that it will always love me back,' she said
