Vidya confesses her crime, regrets bribing in past
Bollywood’s current reigning queen Vidya Balan is a winner this season as she has been picking up all the popular awards for her performance in her last hit ‘The Dirty Picture’. But recently she was the guest of honor at a different kind of award show where a media house was felicitating civilians who have fought against corruption and other unlawful activities. It was here that the actress confessed that she regrets the fact that she had indulged in unlawful activities like bribing in past. She is irked by the behavior which people, including her, indulge in so leniently. “I had bribed an official when I had bought a new house in Khar a few years back. We as people have so many times bribed traffic police officers for letting us escape the fine. But then about two years ago, I changed my stance and decided I would rather pay the fine instead of indulging in an offense like bribing,” said Vidya.
She further urged people that the power to change the nation is there in their own hands, “We are the system. So if we want a change, then we have to take the first step and only then expect to see it in the society. If all of us pledge not to give bribes, it will help us eventually,” added Vidya.
