Marriage Affected Her Career ; thinks Vidya Balan

  • Published in Entertainment
Vidya Balan: is undoubtedly one of the finest actresses of Bollywood but her last released films could not make much impact on the Box Office. Vidya Balan who is currently gearing up for the promotions of her upcoming film Hamari Adhuri Kahani initially thought if her marriage had affected her career.

After the success of The Dirty Picture in 2011, Vidya Balan was married to businessman Siddharth Roy Kapur in 2012. Vidya Balan's last releases post her marriage include Ghanchakkar, Shaadi Ke Side Effects and Bobby Jasoos, none of which could leave a mark at the Box Office. While, Vidya Balan is optimistic about Hamari Adhuri Kahani, the actress said that she once had a thought that marriage might have worked against her career.

"My past three films did not work. The thought did cross my mind as to whether my marriage did impact my career," said Vidya at an event. However, she also added, "But I think the success of a film has to do with whether the movie is good or not. There are also multiple variables that contribute for the success of the film." Vidya Balan also cited examples of actresses like Kajol, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan asserting that it's a false notion which suggests marriage destroys career in Bollywood.

Vidya Balan's upcoming film Hamari Adhuri Kahani also features Emraan Hashmi and Rajkummar Rao and is slated to release on June 12th.
