Karachi: Vidya Balan recently claimed that the audiences have begun to accept female actors depicting different stages of life, instead of just being an eye candy.
The 38-year-old actress said in a recent interview, “Things are no longer the same for female actors over the age of 30. All kinds of films are being made these days. I think audiences are ready to see old actors in films,” reports the Express Tribune.
Vidya added that there were times when only love stories were being made. However old the male lead was, only young female leads were being cast. But now, it’s good to see that people are accepting older women in a variety of roles. They have realised that women can be interesting and desirable, even when they are in their 30s.
Further, the ‘Dirty Picture’ star claimed that she feels that marriage is no longer a hindrance in the film careers, adding that she has been offered a number of exciting roles ever since she got married in 2012.
The actor will next be seen in ‘TE3N’ and the sequel of the critically-acclaimed ‘Kahaani.’ (ANI)
