As an actress, Vidya Balan has gone through different phase of her career before she became the best actress of the Bollywood. The Malayali girl, who has won National Awards consecutive years, says that size zero does not matter for her and there has been no acceptable body type for woman.

Talking to Times Of India on the eve of Women's Day, Vidya Balan said, “As women we are constantly criticising and judging ourselves in terms of our body, how we dress, what profession we take up, how we fare in that. Indian women are gifted with certain body types and features which is healthy and we should accept that.”

The Dirty Picture star added, “Size zero doesn't matter For me there has been no acceptable body type. Look at actors of yesteryears like Mumtaz, Rekhaji... everyone had their individual style. One should celebrate one's own self the way you are. And when you accept yourself, everyone accepts you.”

However, Vidya Balan is all set to release her upcoming movie Kahaani this Friday. The actress, who has received lot of accolades for glorifying woman's roles, is playing a seven months pregnant woman in the film, who has come in search of missing husband in Kolkata.
