Actress Vidya Balan said here today that she hopes to win an Oscar award. "I have never thought of winning an Oscar.
Rather I never thought I would get the Padma Shri. I think God has been kind to me. I think getting Oscar award is not too far away," Vidya, who is the ambassador of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne Awards, said at a press conference, where she also announced nominations for the award function, scheduled to take place from May 1 to May 11. Vidya said she is with the response her recently released film 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects' received.
"People enjoyed the film and it feels good. I hope the film makes a mark. Life has been kind to me. I am happy with the love and appreciation that I have been getting throughout my career. I feel blessed.
I try to do diverse and different roles," she said. When asked if she plans to join politics, Vidya says she had no such plans.
