Vidya Balan is returning as an ambassador of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM), which will be held this year on August 10-22, showcasing over 60 films. The actress is happy about women’s representation at the gala. “I am excited by the work of female directors and writers who have their work showing at the festival. Over the past few years, a new generation of Indian filmmakers has begun to shine on the global stage,” Vidya said in a statement. “To see women behind the camera and creating powerful pieces of art is reflective of the positive steps that the film industry in India and the subcontinent is taking,” added the actress, who has shown her acting prowess in films like The Dirty Picture and Kahaani.”
