In Indian Culture the joy of intimacy, pleasure and fun is missing: Vidya Balan


The versatile actress Vidya Balan, who is currently seen promoting her upcoming movie Tumhari Sulu says that Indian culture wants people to be sexual only in the institution of marriage and for reproduction.

Talking more about it Vidya asserted, “It feels funny how in spite of being the most populated country in the world, we still don't talk about sex openly. The idea of sex is looked down by people because Indian culture wants us to be sexual only in the institution of marriage, for purposes of procreation. But the whole feeling, the joy of intimacy, pleasure, and fun is missing."

Vidya says that likes to be a part of subject-oriented films like Parineeta, The Dirty Picture, Paa and also feels that the time has arrived when we should re-look at the attitude towards sex."We must strive for a traditional and yet modern balance, and (aim) for the hypocrisy related to sex to go away. Our children need to know that sex is a feeling, not a taboo," mentioned the actress.

Directed by Suresh Triveni Tumhari Sulu is set to release on 17 November – the film depicts a story of a happy-go-lucky housewife Sulu, who is trying hard to add spice to her life. Along with Vidya Balan, the film also features Neha Dhupia and RJ Malishka.
