Vidya Balan has always tried her luck in South films. Moreover, she was popular down South when she decided to enter Bollywood. But did you know that she faced rejections there too and was criticized for her looks as well?


While sharing her horrible experience of working with a Tamil producer Vidya said "There were a lot of rejections down South..there were a lot of Malayalam films but I was replaced in each of them...There was a Tamil film I was doing and I was thrown out of the film...I remember my parents had come with me because they were so worried about me...I had really begun to fade so my both the parents flew to Chennai with me and we went to the producer's office. The producer showed us the clippings from the film and he said 'just look at her. Does she look like a heroine. He said 'i was not in favour of taking her at all, it was the director who insisted."


"There was another Tamil film that was locked on the phone and it was not organized in the way that they are today...I didn't know any better so I was like ok and committed to doing the film. I land up in Chennai and I shot with him for a day and really felt uncomfortable with the kind of humour it was in the film. I left the film and then they sent me a legal notice."


Vidya is not the only one who faced such kind of rejections. There are many more examples, almost every other actress in the film industry go through such experiences and it's really really bad.
