Bollywood actress Vidya Balan said that she rejected herself all her life, and had to work hard to accept herself. She additionally said that she has not been able to accept herself completely thus far.

In an interview with the Indian media, Vidya Balan said, “For the longest time, I hated my body. It was important for me to have gone through what I did. It was very public and at that time it was so insurmountable. I come from a non-film family. There was no one to tell me that these phases don’t last. My weight issue had become a national issue. I have always been a fat girl; I wouldn’t say that I am at a stage where my fluctuating weight doesn’t bother me anymore at all. But I have come a long way”.

The actress mentioned that her weight loss journey wasn’t an easy one and came with many obstacles she had to face. “I have had hormonal issues all my life. For the longest time, I hated my body. I thought it had betrayed me. On the days I was under the pressure of looking my best, I would bloat up and I would be so angry and frustrated.”

The versatile actress and powerhouse of talent, Vidya shared heartwarming posts to her Instagram account empowering and celebrating women on International Women’s Day.
