Vidya Balan loves Munmum Sen's Unhooked; not averse for a film on the same
While recently launching Munmun Senís novel Unhooked, Vidya Balan said that she identifies with the author's novel and would love to do a film based on the book.
Launching the book, the Dirty Picture actress said that this was the first novel she had read in three years. She however, hurriedly, went on to state that her involvement in any film based on the novel would depend on who made it and how it was interpreted.
The novel is the story of three single career woman, their varied relationships with men and their quest for personal and professional fulfilment. "There is so much pressure today on girls to have boyfriends. People look at you as if you are diseased if you don't have one. I have gone through the process too," she exclaimed.
"In a sense, I identified with the book; not just through my personal experiences but with what I have watched of people around me, especially girls in the media and the metros whom I interact with regularly," the lady observed.
The actress also said that there was a huge amount of social pressures on the lives of single people. "I think the pressure to be a couple pushes so many people into wrong relationships. And that is the reason so many relationships are breaking today. I was single for a long time and was asked about it. I would say I enjoy being single. Also maybe because I led a full professional life, I didn't feel the pressure much," she remarked.
