The beginning of the year brings along several award ceremonies, especially in Bollywood where many such award functions are organised. During one such event held in Mumbai, actress Vidya Balan was present.
Updating her take on awards, Vidya said, “If one is awarded then it’s indeed a great thing. And, if you aren’t, you should at least clap for others.”
“We need not be so serious about awards that we start bearing bad feelings or start having hard feelings. There is no need to feel sorry at all. Appreciating others while they win an award should be the attitude. I personally see no harm in clapping for the winners,” she adds.
Further speaking about the award functions, she says, “I am of the opinion that these award functions are also a sort of get-together for all the people belonging to the film industry.”
Recalling an interesting tale from her early days, Vidya informs, “I remember when my film Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007) had released, everyone appreciated the film and my work too was applauded by one and all but the film wasn’t nominated in any category. It made me feel sorry, I was actually sad then but later, I understood this is just a part and parcel of our profession and we need to take it in our stride.”
