Vidya Balan is clear about her “snack choices.” How do we know? The actress has said it out loud. Vidya Balan has never shied from admitting her love for food. Time and again, she jumps on hilarious social media trends only to confess that she is fond of eating. And in a recent Instagram video, the actress revealed that all she wants is “gol gappe.” The clip opens with a voice-over saying, “Batao tujhe life mai kya chahiye? (What do you want in life?)” Mouthing the answer, like a pro, Vidya Balan says, “Gol gappe.” The voice over further says, “Gol Gappe ko side mai rakh, ab bata tujhe life mai kya chahiye? (Put the gol gappe aside, now tell me what you want in life?). Once again, Vidya Balan adorably replies, “Side mai rakhe hua gol gappe (The gol gappe which are kept on the side)”
“As you can see, I am clear about my snack choices,” she wrote alongside the hilarious video.
