Time sure flies. This radiant diva has been stunning the fans as well as the critics with her acting prowess. Her effortless performances and down-to earth personality is just what makes her so special. From a mother in Paa to a sexy seductress in Ishqiya, Vidya Balan has done it all. And it’s not just the acting! Her unique sense of style makes her stand out in the crowd.

With the release of Hamari Adhuri Kahani, we can’t be more excited. Even though her last film, Bobby Jasoos wasn’t a commercial success, Vidya was lauded for her performance as the chirpy and quirky character of Bilkis "Bobby" Ahmed.

As we are all set for her new film opposite Emraan Hashmi, let’s take a look at her most memorable performances till now.

Parineeta (2005)

Vidya Balan marked her debut with Pradeep Sarkar’s Parineeta. Her performance in the film created a stir. Vidya stole everyone’s heart with her winsome smile and acting skills. A star was born.

Dirty Picture (2011)

Vidya Balan took sexy to an all new level with Dirty Picture! No one can do the ‘Ooh La La’ better than her. She won a National Film Award for the Best Actress for the film.

No One Killed Jessica (2011)

Even though Rani Mukerji stole the show, Vidya Balan gave a powerful performance as Sabrina Lal. Sometimes silence speaks louder than words. Vidya proved it.

Paa (2009)

In R Balki’s Paa, Vidya Balan played a 13 year-old’s mother. And she is definitely not the typical Bollywood ma. She played the character of a mother with poise.

Kahaani (2012)

Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani is one of Bollywood’s most mind-bending films ever. Vidya Balan nailed her character of Vidya Bagchi in the film. She earned critical accolades for her performance of a pregnant woman searching for her husband. We would love a sequel to this film.
