Vidya Balan says being slammed for her fashion sense has helped her with her film

Life’s come a full circle for Vidya Balan in terms of her dressing style. But it’s only for her role in her upcoming film opposite Emraan Hashmi.

Sources say that in Ghanchakkar, Vidya is portrayed as having a poor style sense.

An industry insider says, “When she started out in Bollywood, everyone slammed Vidya’s dressing sense. Her garish outfits and sack-like costumes won her brickbats from all quarters. But thanks to designer Sabyasachi, Vidya created her own niche in the industry with her traditional sarees. But looks like the past has come back to haunt her in her next film.”

But Vidya is taking things in her stride as she says, “It was great fun to say the least. My character in the film is actually quite outlandish and crazy and yet so relatable. I wish every woman were as confident as my character Nitu Bhatia in terms of her body and appearance.”
