Did we miss anyone?



    • Vidya Balan is infact very fat,like a woman who gave birth to 4 children.He bust can never be less than 38 or even more.She has no waist.Flat from arms to hips.And her hips must be not less than 40 inches.Watch her in “Kahani” and you will agree with me.Her weight naturally comes to 70 kilos.The figures given here are all fakes.

      • Well, she is not because in the movie ” Dirty Picture”, she didn’t look like she have a rectangular shaped body in fact it was voluptuous, even when she gained weigh. Sometimes actress has to carry themselves in a different way and that may cause them to look in certain type of way. Also she is portrayed as a pregnant woman. She carries herself in a natural way in sharee so…
