Heady success in professional and personal spheres this year has ensured a smile on Vidya Balan's face all year long. Onscreen, she continued to wow us with strong performances and off screen, she was the outspoken, sexy and confident Indian woman, who created a style statement with sarees.
This year, after soaking up heaps of adulation for playing Silk in 'The Dirty Picture', Vidya delivered another blockbuster performance in Sujoy Ghosh's thriller, 'Kahaani'. The March release was marketed by Vidya, who even wore a prosthetic baby bump to events. In an interview, she said she did 43 interviews in a day to promote 'Kahaani'! As Vidya Bagchi, a pregnant woman tracking down her missing husband in a new city, Vidya left watchers reeling at the climax. Within two weeks of its release, Kahaani was declared a super hit.
Her next challenge was a special appearance in the heartwarming film, 'Ferrari ki Sawaari'. In an unconventional item number, Vidya shook her booty in a lavani-style number. The film was a hit and the song became a popular feature at all dance stops.
Vidya's schedule has since been occupied by shoots for her 2013 projects, 'Ghanchakkar' and 'Shaadi ke Side Effects'. While the former pairs her with Emraan Hashmi, the latter brings Farhan Akhtar and Vidya together for the first time.
Professional ventures aside, Vidya ended 2012 with a bang. She tied the knot with UTV honcho, Siddharth Roy Kapur, on December 14. Vidya's elder sister Priya was also married on the same date. Vidya opted for a traditional, low- key affair. With a trousseau of 18 Sabyasachi creations, Vidya Balan sealed her two-year long relationship with Kapur and they looked charming on their wedding day.
We hope the coming year brings exciting prospects for the vivacious Vidya Balan, both in reel and real life.
