With six Filmfare awards on national award and a Padma Shri title, Vidya Balan is one of the most sought-after actresses of the Hindi film industry. Balan’s last film ‘Sherni’ was also shortlisted alongside Sardar Udham to be India’s official entry to the Oscar last year. Vidya Balan would be seen opposite Shefali Shah in ‘Jalsa’ and on Monday, during her snack time, she decided to do an AMA session with her fans, the actress chomped on chilla, chutney and roasted paneer when she asked her fans to shoot the questions, and was it a ride. The actress spoke about everything from her love for the TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S to Alia Bhatt’s performance in ‘Gangubai Kathiyawadi’.

The actress also took a couple of questions pertaining to her likes and dislikes when it comes to food. When a fan asked her about her favourite dish, Vidya replied saying ‘Italian’ followed by a Pizza and Spaghetti emoji. And when she was asked ‘Do u diet?’, she wrote, ‘No...I eat healthy’. Vidya has always been vocal against crash dieting, so this does not come as a surprise. It is however, her love for Italian food that has made us crave for these delicious Italian treats.
