Actress Vidya Balan, who played a gynaecologist in the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer “Paa”, was surprised when she received wishes on National Doctors’ Day.
Sharing an image of Bollywood stars including Amitabh, Shah Rukh Khan and Vidya, a Twitter user posted on July 1, observed as National Doctors’ Day: “Happy #doctorsday to our Hindi film industry’s honourable Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Vidya Balan, A.R. Rahman, Akshay Kumar.”
She replied saying: “Haha never thought I’d get wished Happy Doctors’ Day.”
Vidya was conferred with a Doctor of Arts Honoris Causa degree by an Ahmedabad-based institute Rai University to appreciate her contribution to Indian cinema and for her endeavour to bring out the strong side of a woman via the silver screen.
