Vidya Balan has established herself as the epitome of self-love and acceptance in the Bollywood industry. And that is where all the charm in her character stems from. The upcoming character that she has in store in Tumhari Sulu, is a housewife who is miles away from the stereotypical housewives we see in Bollywood and so much closer to the real ones. She wins goodies by participating in contests, has a sharp mind, and an awesome attitude towards life.

What I absolutely love about her is her spirit of doing things, and then winning at them. She isn’t that supposedly strong woman you see on TV who suddenly decides to be the best bahu ever after marriage, abandoning all her individuality. Sulu is an individual, and then a housewife and mother and a wife. She defines them, and not the other way round. And this is exactly why I have really high hopes for the movie.

The concept of female subjectivity that this movie touches upon makes me so, so happy. And well, Vidya Balan’s acting in the trailer is mind-blowing as usual.

The trailer promises a strong women character who stays in the house, unlike the ‘goddesses’ that are portrayed who are supposed to handle office and home all alone. She brings more power to all the women, the ones who choose to stay at home, and the ones who go to work. Just remember that you do you, girl!
