Vidya Balan is a happy and relieved woman today. Initially wary of the reactions to her raunchy act in The Dirty Picture, the actress now feels flattered by all the compliments coming her way, mostly by the approval of her performance by her parents.
“I am ecstatic with all the compliments that have come my way even though the film's release was a month ago. What touched my heart most was the acknowledgement coming from my parents,” Vidya Balan, who played the character of Silk in the movie, is quoted as saying by a news agency.
“They (parents) said to me that within five minutes of The Dirty Picture, they forgot that the girl on screen was their daughter and instead took home Silk. It was a big relief when my parents said that since right through the film's making, I was wary of their reactions,” Vidya Balan added.
The movie released at the start of December 2011, but Vidya says she still continues to get congratulatory messages on her phone. By the way, the actress celebrated her birthday on January 1. She turned 34 yesterday.
