Personal 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.

Trivia:

In 1996, Vidya signed a TV serial titled "La Bella's". Produced by Vinta Nanda and Directed by Raman Kumar. The serial was shelved before it could air. See more »
