Seems like Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is overwhelmed as she met former US first lady Hillary Clinton at the grand pre-wedding celebrations of Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani's daughter Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal, son of Ajay and Swati Piramal, at The Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur on Sunday, December 9. Following the event, the actress took to Instagram and shared a picture where she and her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur can be seen posing with the Former First Lady.
Identifying the picture as a 'precious' one, Vidya wrote a long post describing how it was the first time that she asked for being introduced to someone and also thanked Union Minister Smriti Irani for helping the two familiarise with each other.
"The first time in my life that I asked to be introduced to someone. Thank you, Smriti Irani, for the same. I love Hillary Clinton. A woman who has weathered every storm with equanimity and who never gives up. I felt hopeful while she campaigned to be President and felt a certain hopelessness when she didn't make it," she wrote in the post.
The actor further heaped praises on Clinton and thanked her for being a 'hero'.
"Thank you, Hillary Clinton, for all that you are and for being a HERO. And, thank you, Siddharth Roy Kapur for being a walking-talking encyclopedia on American politics and for thereby introducing me to her," the caption further read.
