Mumbai, April 25: Vidya Balan, though now a powerhouse in the industry, has confronted her fair share of challenges, including the pervasive issue of nepotism in Bollywood. During a podcast, Vidya disclosed an incident where she felt targeted by nepotism, particularly evident when she received the "Na-Real" award at the 2008 Filmfare Awards for her costumes in the film Heyy Babyy (2007), directed by Sajid Khan.

Initially, Vidya questioned the rationale behind receiving the award, given that costume choices were not solely hers. However, being new to the industry, she acquiesced when told it was just a lighthearted segment. Yet, her perception shifted upon realizing she was the sole recipient among her peers. Despite being prepared to take it in stride, she later felt isolated and bullied, recognizing it as her first significant encounter with nepotism.

The incident left Vidya feeling shattered and alone, highlighting the disparity in support for those without familial ties in the industry. Her decision to name the director and costume designer upon accepting the award sparked controversy and backlash from their circles. Vidya's experience underscores the challenges faced by outsiders in Bollywood and the need for a more inclusive and equitable industry.
