Gaurav Dubey for ENI
Mumbai: When stern warnings are being issued to several Bollywood stars who have become service tax evaders, Vidya Balan said on Sunday that she is not one of them and that she pays her taxes regularly.
Speaking at the launch of a jewellery store in Mumbai, the actor said: “I regularly pay service tax. I think it is the duty of a responsible citizen to pay their service tax on time.”
The National award winner also revealed her fetish for jhumkas. “I think jewellery is a woman’s best friend. It adds to the beauty and grace. I am not much into jewellery but I am fond of jhumkas. I have several pairs of different sizes and designs. I do match them with traditional outfits and wear them on occasions,” said the 35-year-old actor.
Last seen as a Punjabi housewife in Ghanchakkar, Vidya will now play a detective in debutant Samar Shaikh’s Bobby Jasoos. The film is produced by Dia Mirza and her boyfriend Sahil Sangha.
