Films that didn’t work af­fected me im­mensely: Vidya

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Vidya Balan (be­low), who was last seen on screen in Ka­haani 2: Durga Rani Singh, says her films that didn’t work well left her up­set.

“Pre­vi­ously, be­fore 2008, in that phase of my ca­reer, fail­ure didn’t af­fect me that much be­cause I didn’t feel like I was re­ally in­vested in the films, but since 2008, since I be­gan to do films like Paa, Ishqiya and No One Killed Jes­sica... The films that didn’t work, have af­fected me im­mensely,” shares the ac­tor.

The 38-year-old says the rea­son she gets af­fected with a film’s fail­ure now is be­cause she “in­vested in them emo­tion­ally”.

“I have given so much of my­self to the films. So, it af­fects you... It’s like your child is be­ing re­jected by the world and it’s heart-break­ing. Not that you would love the child any less be­cause the world doesn’t ex­cept it, but it’s dif­fi­cult,” she adds.
