The actress opened up about how she used to feel she would never become an actor during her days as an aspiring actor.
Speaking with Bollywood Bubble, Vidya Balan shared how she survives lows. Vidya said, “I think I am hopelessly optimistic. Like, even when I was going through a lot of rejection down south, way back in 2002-03, I used to go to sleep crying. I used to feel like maybe I am never going to become an actor.” She added, “But the next morning, I would wake up feeling like… I think the sunrise was enough to give me hope.”
The actress mentioned how the sunrise gave her hope. Adding further, she said, “If I have made it to another sunrise, I knew that it meant I have another chance. So, I think it didn’t matter what I was going through. I always had that optimism and I have to say thank you to my parents for that.” Vidya said her optimism got her through the tough times when she started out as an actor in the film industry.
