The lady with elegance & grace Vidya Balan is back in national news and that also for two reasons.

One is grand success of her latest release No One Killed Jessica and the other one is because of her super sensuous nude picture in ace photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s 2011 new year calender. Vidya Balan’s nude picture is most surprising and sexiest among all the celebrity pics.

However apart from Vidya, Bipasha Basu is also posed topless but it did not create so much buzz in media as much as Vidya’s pic did as Bips has done such shoots earlier as well.

Vidya Balan has been posed backless, so beautifully dabbed with paint carrying painting brushes in hands, looking super sensuous. Really, Vidya Balan has shown lots of shades in her filmy life, has palyed wide range of characters like Paa’s doctor mother, Parinita’s lovely wife, Bhool Bhuliya’s Avni, Ishqiya’s sexy village woman and now rebelling sister of “No One Killed Jessica”.

Today, whenever a director thinks of a strong woman oriented character, Vidya Balan certainly comes as one of the top choices. But do you guys know that her successful character had an ugly start. why not judge it from Vidya’s own quote,

“Neither of my first two Malayalam films got completed, and I walked out of the third, a Tamil film, because I was not comfortable. I was replaced in another Tamil film with the excuse that I could not act. They made me feel ugly to the point where I was scared to look in the mirror. In retrospect I thank God, and by God’s grace today the going is good.”

This proves Vidya Balan’s strong will power, hard work and determination.
