After her last three films failed at the box office, Bollywood actress Vidya Balan wondered if her marriage was working against her.
The actress is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming flick Hamari Adhuri Kahani.
“My past three films did not work. The thought did cross my mind as to whether my marriage did impact [my career],” Balan said during a talk at the ongoing Women Economic Forum in Panaji, Goa.
“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,” she said.
The 37-year-old actress hoped that her next movie with Emraan Hashmi proves that married actresses can be successful.
She said it is wrong to think that actresses can’t have a good career after marriage. “There are a lot of actresses who have got married and are successful,” she said naming veterans such as Kajol, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
The National Award-winning actress said that marriage was never on cards until she met Siddharth Roy Kapur, with whom she tied the knot in 2012.
“He has been brought up to believe in marriage as a coming together of equals. I was happy to get married... it’s great,” she said.
