Actor Vidya Balan feels the insecurity which runs among actors in the industry is a dark thing. The 38-year-old star, who made her debut in Parineeta and went on to star in acclaimed films like Kahaani, The Dirty Picture and Paa, says being insecure is human and everyone feels that.

When asked to name three dark things about Bollywood, Vidya told reporters, “Studios after shoot... Parties that only start after midnight. And, the third thing is, the insecurity that all of us feel from time to time.”

“It’s human. Everyone feels insecure. I think in this industry where everything gets written about, every emotion gets magnified,” she said. Vidya was speaking at the launch of fantasy novel Dark Things written by Sukanya Venkatraghavan. The Ishqiya star said she never plans to venture into writing a fictional book. “No. I don’t think I have anything to write. If it is compelling enough I am happy to tell them but... no, really... I have no imagination I think... That’s out of question,” she said.

On the film front, the actress will be seen in a special appearance as a cop in Sujoy Ghosh-produced upcoming Te3n. The film, directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan and actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles.
