Vidya Balan

Actress Vidya Balan was really touched to the core of her heart, as she watched the children of Indian Institute Of Cerebral Palsy perform during a charity event on Aashayein a song. Prior to the performance a child had stepped forward and requested of the audience,”Please forget everything else about us. Today we are before you only as dancers.”


The mesmerized star, attending the fund-raiser organised by the Bengal Chamber of Commerce to help children with disabilities said,”It really touched my heart.”

Vidya Balan has always been on the forefront constantly putting her weight behind different women and children issues. But she never considers herself an activist.”I don’t think I see myself as an activist at all. I am an actor first and the more I focus on my acting the more I can leverage attention on issues,” she said.
