Related News According to Silk aka Reshma the erotica star of The Dirty Picture only three ingredients guarantee a film success: “Entertainment entertainment and entertainment” It was Vidya Balan as the sexy siren Silk Smitha who mouthed that line in her raunchy come-hither voice and made it famous Balan who not long ago was the most powerful woman in Bollywood recently in an interview with Anupama Chopra emphasised yet again why entertainment must not be sneered at “I don’t know why entertainers would be a rung lower than poets or musicians” she told Chopra in response to a question “I take great pride” she went on “in the fact that I’m an entertainer It takes a lot to entertain people to keep people engaged to keep people engrossed It’s no mean feat I really think that we mitigate the value of entertainment Whatever you do in life – you may be a doctor a surgeon a policeman a soldier or people from films or a student – everyone wants to be entertained” Begum Jaan the title character that Balan plays in her latest offering that released on April 14 would agree A madam of a brothel Begum Jaan thrives on supplying pleasure and entertainment to the male clientele The film is set against the backdrop of Partition and already comparisons are being drawn with Shyam Benegal’s 1983 comedy Mandi in which a brothel run by Shabana Azmi is forced to relocate to the outskirts of the town Begum Jaan’s success is crucial for Vidya Balan’s star power if not exactly survival Even if there’s enough “entertainment” in it to satisfy a hungry public what’s going both in favour and against the film is Balan herself Balan is a product of that side of mainstream cinema where the story is king and a rousing performance by its star the queen Audiences will be looking for both those ingredients in the Balan-led Begum Jaan All her big films Paa Ishqiya No One Killed Jessica and Kahaani have had strong and unusual plots with crack-whipping performance by her To put it in context Balan’s rise as a star coincided with a growing wave of Twitter feminism in India Unarguably the other beneficiary of the trend has been Kangana Ranaut Though on surface Balan and Ranaut make for strange bedfellows there’s an unmistakable similarity The terms ‘woman-oriented’ ‘female empowerment’ ‘shero’ ‘fourth Khan’ and ‘superwoman’ are thrown around in generous doses to describe Vidya Balan and Kangana Ranaut Whenever a film hits one straight out of the park they have to sternly remind the media as Balan did recently to a newspaper that “A woman has to always justify her success which does not happen for men” Both in a way after being branded as flag-bearers of feminism were canny enough to capitalise on the momentum Besides the craft of acting they also possessed the pertinent art of gaming the media In the beginning their witty outburst and candour offended the gated film industry Their political incorrectness and defiance of authority built up by decades of unchecked nepotism patriarchy and hierarchy foisted them into another category – these were women who were brave non-conformist and not to be messed around with Soon their boldness became a part of the national conversation and eventually a form of entertainment Tune into any Vidya Balan interview on YouTube and you will come away impressed with her feisty persona her clarity of mind and ability to express it and mostly to say what the media wants to hear Balan herself would be amazed at the long and arduous distance she has covered from the days when we first saw her as a nerdy Mathur sister with a hearing aid and butterfingered bumbling in the hit 1990s sitcom Hum Paanch It was the eldest Mathur sister who was the woman’s rights activist a perfect union leader personality How did Balan come to assume that position in Bollywood From her tentative TV beginnings Vidhu Vinod Chopra and mentor Pradeep Sarkar plucked her out for what looked like assured stardom Though Parineeta released in 2005 made Vidya Balan a star at the age of 26 (not young by Bollywood standards) her subsequent films were both acclaimed and commercial successes (Lage Raho Munnabhai Guru Heyy Babyy etc) but she remained more than just a minor presence in them What followed was an unusual struggle mostly with her looks At first she was in the uncool Aunties’ Club With her buxom South Indian sex appeal for long she wasn’t even accepted as a Hindi film heroine But it was exactly the curves and the nine-yards that made her a sex symbol Who can forget the hateful vengeance with which the body-shamers and slut-shamers went after her Her fashion choices lampooned at by those who manned the high style horse and judgement tables That’s when she put on that ultimate Indian symbol of female respect and power – sari She also accepted herself for who she was instead of trying to mindlessly “fit in” Unlike Kangana Ranaut though Vidya Balan’s script has taken some familiar twists and turns including marriage (She’s married to producer Siddharth Roy Kapur since 2012 though reports are emerging of “trouble in paradise”) So on one hand Balan is long viewed as a traditional middle-class South Indian girl from Chembur who rushes home (now in upmarket Juhu) post work to spend quality family time with parents/husband on the other she’s a strong no-nonsense woman navigating the tricky Bollywood lanes Balan reconciles the two effortlessly All these reasons have contributed to her persona as a quintessentially Indian woman Indians recognise in her all the attributes of a desi girl (sorry Priyanka Chopra) Also Read:I wish Pakistan’s censor board had given Begum Jaan a viewing: MaheshBhatt While she remains an eminently bankable Bollywood star Vidya Balan a National award winner has seen some
