We object to being objectified: Vidya Balan


National award winning actress Vidya Balan says female actors are now in a position to avoid being objectified on screen.

“Time has absolutely changed. I have seen this change over the past five to six years when I started doing films like Ishqiya and No One Killed Jessica I personally believe that women are not willing to be objectified on screen anymore... they feel they can object to being objectified.”

Vidya also feels that that one way of getting rid of crime against women is by becoming economically independent. “There are pockets that are progressive and they have education, awareness and opportunities, but there are parallel realities. Every woman has the right to “lead life on her own terms.” Now that’s something she has been conveying through her choices in Bollywood.
