Vidya Balan was re­cently in­vited for an In­dian expo or­gan­ised by a pop­u­lar me­dia con­glom­er­ate in Sin­ga­pore. She was also in­vited by an in­ter­na­tional school in the coun­try to de­liver a speech on lead­er­ship and suc­cess.

“Af­ter a warm wel­come by the or­gan­is­ers, a mon­tage of the ac­tor’s most loved films was shown to the au­di­ence. Vidya was touched to wit­ness the re­sponse her films have gar­nered out­side In­dia. There was also a sur­prise dance se­quence of the ac­tor’s most fa­mous songs. Sport­ingly, the ac­tor shook a leg with the dancers on be­ing re­quested, and fol­lowed it up with a heart-to-heart con­ver­sa­tion with them. The or­gan­is­ers also held a com­pe­ti­tion wherein girls read out fa­mous di­a­logues from dif­fer­ent films star­ring Vidya,” says a source.

“Soon af­ter the expo, Vidya hon­oured an­other in­vi­ta­tion by an in­ter­na­tional school, where she de­liv­ered a talk on lead­er­ship and cre­ativ­ity act­ing as a path­way to suc­cess,” fur­ther added the source.

Vidya says, “Meet­ing fans in Sin­ga­pore was so much fun. They were so ex­cited, warm and wel­com­ing. I al­ways love such in­ter­ac­tions where I get a taste of their love for our films.”
