Vidya Balan is careful about her associations!

Vidya Balan has gained a star status, all thanks to a number of superhit films and now the actress is all careful about whatever gets associated with her name. Recently, she was approached to launch a new book by author Munmun Ghosh, and the actress demanded to first read the book before giving a nod to it.

A source says,

Ghosh had approached Vidya with an SMS request. After that she promptly sent the book to her and the actress read it. She accepted the request to launch the book and read excerpts from it. And she will be doing this out of her pure love for good literature and her conviction in the substance of the novel.

Vidya says,

In a certain 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. There’s so much pressure today on girls to have boyfriends. People look at you as if you are diseased if you don’t have one.
