How old is Vidya ‘aunty’ Balan…really?

Ever since ‘Kismat Konnection‘ was announced, people have raised their eyebrows at its lead pair- Shahid Kapur and Vidya Balan. Not surprising considering Vidya looks older than Shahid. So i decided to check out the age of both the actors. Shahid, born in 1981 is 27. Nothing special there. I went on to check Vidya’s age. Her official site says, born in 1982, she is 28. Hmm, so she doesn’t ‘look’ older; she is in fact ‘older’ than Shahid. Its just a difference of one year, whats the big deal, right? WRONG. Next I checked her profile on Wikipedia. Now it became evident that Vidya is in fact an ‘aunty’. Her age was listed as 33. Thats a difference of seven years. SEVEN YEARS! That implies when our ‘aunty’ was busy clearing her 10th boards, Shahid probably was asking his mom- “Where do babies come from?!?”. Sigh..

A couple of days later my good friend, with whom I had been discussing this told me that aunty’s age is 28 according to Wiki. WTF?!? Just two days back it was 33. I was sure that some idiot who probably thought Vidya looked hotter than Jessica Alba in Heyy Baby must have edited the page. So the both of us did some digging. I went to answers.com and asked a simple question- “How old is Vidya Balan?”. Within a couple of seconds the screen was filled with results. The first result was a link to aunty’s wikipedia page. The second one was titled -“Just again how old are you Vidya Balan?” Without even wasting a second I clicked on it. I was directed to the forum of some Bollywood site. Some guy like me now, had posted about Vidya aunty’s age. I don’t want to waste my time writing what he thinks. So I have copied and pasted the post here-

Women lying about their age is nothing new and in Bollywood an actress always begins her career when she is eighteen years old and so did Vidya Balan, who claims that she is 24 years old, but what the actress is forgetting is her past when she began her career in Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Hum Paanch’, the Indian Television comedy that was shot in the 1990s in which she played Radhika one of the five sisters.


While shooting for the comedy series Vidya was 21 years old so is it possible that after a span of 9 years she is just 24? Looks like Vidya too is suffering the Mallika Sherawat syndrome. Listen up gal you have the talent and the conviction so rather than hiding be proud that you made it big a little later in life rather than never.

See my point? BTW this was posted in 2006. Which means according to Aryan Mishra’s (the author of the post) calculations and considering that Hum Paanch first aired in 1995 Vidya in 2008 must be 21+13=34 years old. Thats one year older than what i had told earlier. You may still excuse that one year since she may not have been exactly 21 in 1995. Even then she couldn’t have been younger than 19-20. Being an Indian, I would refer to any woman over 30unknown to me  as aunty. So doesn’t it make Vidya eligible to be called AUNTY? These bollywood beauties na… By the way there were some rumors doing around that little Shahid and Vidya aunty were dating. So I wonder, if that is true can aunty be called a MILF to Shahid beta? Think…

    LOL this one is good.
    Shahid probably was asking his mom- “Where do babies come from?!?”

    But are you sure you can call Shahid a MILF since it means Mother I like to F@#k. And I dont think shahid is a mother.

    yes, she is almost 40. Cos she used to come in the ads of Vim bar or wheel or some thing like that and even Krack cream when she was in her twenties.. I was in school then so she has definitely grown 10+ yrs.. she is acc to me, in her late thirties. She definitely looked like Shahid’s mom in the movie. No wonder, it flopped big time.

    Wikipedia is edited by anyone and everyone. So its just wrong to search there for age. Payal Rohatgi’s age changes so often on Wikipedia and so does her work resume.. Once I read, she was in Munnabhai MBBS. I certainly did not notice her there. LOL.
    Actresses and their age ! Bipasha is 30+ , but works hard to look young and I think she succeeds. Vidya aunty is too old and too fat to look young… Priyanka was 27 in Dostana so I guess 29 now… Preity, Rani are all in their 30’s, but their official sites will obviously say “nicer” ( Read younger )things.

    Thanks for telling her age, but seriously, there’s absolutely no need to call her an “aunty”, or fat. If 30+ is the definition of aunty, then half the actresses in Bollywood would be called that. I think it’s great that she doesn’t try to make herself younger like others, as aging is a natural and beautiful process in itself. Also, Vidya is such an insanely talented and graceful actress that I find it disgusting to call her fat. She is a fantastic personality to see on and off screen, unlike those pathetic new “skinny” actresses that come in movies nowadays, who are only there for one movie, and as soon as they start looking a bit old, no one will have them around. That’s unlike Vidya who’s established herself as a real actress, and will most likely continue to be offered roles because of her superior talent, whether she looks older than the main lead hero or not. As for Kismat Konnection, it was one of my favourite movies, mainly because it was a completely fresh, new love story, compared to the b.s. that comes out nowadays. It actually had an interesting storyline, AND two interesting characters who were very beautiful in their own style. There’s so many odd matches made in real life that it’s nice to watch some of them on-screen. Much, MUCH better than a lot of new movies with cheap actors and actresses who make money by taking off their clothes and saying vulgar dialogues. I guess if a movie doesn’t have that, then it would most likely fail in India. Just my opinion.

    dont call her aunty. she is a brilliant actress. it shows ur cheapness n shows ur sick mentality towards women. she is in industry just becus of her talent. she is making path for women over 30. dudes aap kis dunia mei ho,. jenifer lopez is 40, jenifer aniston is 40,angelina is 35, madona is 52 n hot salma hayek is 44, of course helle berry is 43. come on make ur thinking modern. ek din tumhe bhi 30 plus hona hi hai mere lala….

    I completely agree with SK and Ritu.
    Vidya is more watchable than many of the much younger actresses today.
    As history proves, age is not everything!!!

    I too agree with SK and Ritu.
    She is a natural actress and its proved in her debut film Parineeta,in which siaf says she is a natural girl(its a dialogue)
    And if she is “aunty” she is “Beautyful Aunty” who does not seems to look like an aunt and if not she is a “Gorgeous Women”.

    To everyone who is saying that ” look at her beauty and acting and not her age ” , I will agree with you .However, if thats the case and way you want us to see it, then tell her to speak out the truth about her real age. Then we can say ” wow at her age , she is superb”

    But trying to be Shahids age who is almost my age is ridiculous! i remember being crazy about hum paanch serial when the serial first released in 94 or 95. At 11 or 12 and just about to hit puberty I remember these days very well. And I remember this lady as Radhika the hUm paanch sister who was atleast 20 or 21 out there. Amongst all the sisters I found her role the worst and most boring even when she did it and another serial actress who came in RIN advertisements used to do it in the beginning. So much was my hatred for the women I couldnt forget her at al;l.

    How can anyone even think she is 28 today ? She is atleast 35 years old in all honesty. Its good that she is young looking etc. and I like her acting especially her voice. but why the FUCK should I sit her and be told she is younger to me or the same age when I am 27?????

    Plssssssssssss…. I looked like a half size of young Shahid at 11 and this Balan is looking like a full fledged mentstruating female about 21 years old. Its simple. If you want us NOT to care about age. Then make these people speak the truth . Why should we be subject to be caled the same age of this lady, when we are actually younger? That is exactly what irritates me and a lot of people who are age conscious. As regular people we cant hide our agesm because of childhood friends , classmates etc around us, then these guys also should not be given this chance.

    Batta bElan (Vidya Balan) is 36 to 41 years old……as she played roles in Hum Paanch daily soap on zee tv durind 1994. And in this serial she cliamed that she was only 25. After 16 years she is still 25……….I think she is the sister of an amoeba.

    She said in ” Jhalak dikh la ja” that she has been adoring legend Madhuri Dixit ever since she was in shool……… ha ah ah aha ha ha ah aha h. Madhuri was on her career’s peak during 1987- to 2000. so it means Vidya Belan was in school while shooting for Hum Paanch in 1994. Ha haha ha ha ha ah.

    She’s 38-40 for sure – read hello’s comment above. But the point is how she manages to look young n sexy at this age.

  17. December 2, 2011 at 10:44

    I read somwhere in a blog that her age is 43 years and 8 months and that botox therapy might make her look younger.As these info’s are generally doubtful in nature I feel that whoever posted this might be trying to have a few laughs at her expense but anyways some info could sometimes turn out to be true.

    I dont understand y most of the people r bothered of her age…she is giving us nice and entertaining movies with full fledged exhibition of her acting capabilities….lets admire and enjoy that. Moreover I dont understand y is she called fat all the time, she is having a good seductive torso(somewhat typical bong luks). Today our film industry has a whole lot of so called babes and chics with immense hot figure which are actually skinny and our ancient mythology reveals sexy and seductive figures are somewhat like that of vidya’s.(female figures from temples of south or puri)

    Look guys, whatever she’s doing -wheather it’s lying about her age, overdoing the flab, trying every old fashion saree she can get her hands on- it’s working for her! She’s achived a level that most skinny-true to their age- actresses can only dream of. She’s getting checks of amounts even her belly cant handle. That too without the nudity! Many nuders like shryln chopra are still struggling despite forcefully having the audience count ever single one of pubic hair! Hell their earnings are so cheap that you could fit it in their belly buttons!

    It is irrelvant how old anybody is as long as they are able to keep healthy and fit. Seems like the author needs to wake up and start becoming intelligent. If you call anyone aunty to those not related to you in europe or america, they will slap or sue you. So grow up, you immature nincompoop and spend your time wisely by learning better things in life.

    If a peer or someone older than you calls you an uncle, am sure you are not going to like it. So beat it stranger!!!!

    Even lords of the realms turn uncles–do you think you can win those battles against your increasing girth, gray hairs (or worse, losing hair) and fine lines? You must be already turning 30 & worried about your ever decreasing levels of testosterone since you are so judgmental about other people’ ages!!!! The day when pretty young girls start calling you ‘uncle’ is not far, uncle ji!!!
