“I am enjoying being married,” says actor Vidya Balan, adding that marriage neither put the brakes on her prize-winning acting career nor does it have any bearing on the kind of roles she would choose in future. Work-life balance is possible for the Dirty Picture actor because the she has found a
supportive husband in producer Siddharth Roy Kapur, she says, The duo tied the knot at a private ceremony in December last year.
“I am enjoying being married. The good thing is that at the end of the day you get to see each other,” she says. Praising Siddharth, she adds, “He is very supportive. In fact, I did The Dirty Picture (2011) after we got together.”
And the 35-year-old doesn’t feel that marriage will alter the kind of roles she would take up. “I don’t think marriage really has a bearing on that. Both of us respect what the other does. I may choose a role which I feel very strongly about, and he may decide to produce a film which he feels very strongly about. You just respect each other’s profession,” she explains. In fact, she is willing to do another Dirty Picture.
“The definition of boldness may not be just The Dirty Picture. Even Ghanchakkar is a bold role. I believe that there is an extraordinary in the ordinary and I feel that is what films are exploring these days vis-a-vis different characters. Having said that, it could be another Dirty Picture also and if I feel strongly about it, I will go and do it,” she says.
Post-marriage, shooting and promoting Ghanchakkar have been keeping her busy. And she says that she is enjoying straddling these two worlds. “However, at the same time, I don’t have unreal expectations from myself. There are times when there will be slip ups,” she adds.
