The fact is that if you are tal­ented and have the con­vic­tion, work will find its way to you, sooner or later

Vidya Balan, ac­tor

She has com­pleted 10 years in the in­dus­try this year and one of the things ac­tor Vidya Balan loves about the Hindi film in­dus­try is that tal­ent gets its due. “I have re­alised that the in­dus­try is a great place to be in,” says the Padma Shri awardee.

She ex­plains, “If you are tal­ented and have the con­vic­tion, work will find its way to you. And that’s one of the things that I love about the in­dus­try,” says the 37-year-old ac­tor, who has had her share of strug­gle, too.

And this truth does not just hold for those who want to be ac­tors, says Vidya. “If you have the de­sire to be an ac­tor, a writer or a di­rec­tor, and have the con­vic­tion, peo­ple will ap­proach you with work,” she says, adding that one should, how­ever, not un­der­mine the value of hard work.

“This is not to say that you shouldn’t work hard to find work, all I am say­ing is that some way or the other it will hap­pen. So keep up­grad­ing your skills,” feels Vidya.

Hav­ing cre­ated a niche for her­self in her 10-year-long stint, the beauty says, “Well, can you imag­ine, 10 years in the in­dus­try! It looks like just yesterday when I went up on the stage to col­lect my first award for Pari­neeta (her de­but film). And it has been a won­der­ful jour­ney. It didn’t even feel like it has been 10 years al­ready,” she says.
