Vidya Balan Joins The Cannes Jury

There was a strong buzz recently that Bollywood actress Vidya Balan may be a part of the Cannes Film Festival jury, this year and now the news has been confirmed.

The jury will be headed by Steven Spielberg and by being a part of it, Vidya has joined the league of celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee, Christopher Waltz, Japanese director Naomi Kawase, Scottish director Lynne Ramsay, French actor-director Daniel Auteuil and Roman director Cristian Mungiu, who too are on the panel.

On hearing the good news, filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh too expressed his joy on Twitter, writing, "balan is on cannes jury!! way to go:) (sic)." Vidya played the lead role in Ghosh's 2012 release Kahaani and bagged almost all the major awards this year, for her power-packed performance in the thriller.

Over the years, Vidya has proved her acting prowess and is one star who certainly deserves to be there.
