New Delhi: Seems like Bollywood actor Vidya Balan is on cloud-nine after meeting former US first lady Hillary Clinton at Isha Ambani’s pre-wedding function in Udaipur. Taking to her Instagram, the ‘Kahaani’ star shared her ‘precious picture’ with Clinton, which also featured her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur. The actor wrote that 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,” read the caption.

Precious pic 🥰!! The first time in my life that i asked to be introduced to someone…Thank you @smritiiraniofficial for the same 🙂. I loove @hillaryclinton ♥️. 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…But in a few days i realized that only when the glass ceiling is shattered can we reach the sky and she broke it for us…and thus paved the way for someone else to reach for the boundless blue. You may find many reasons to dislike her but that’s because you are judging her because she dared to travel where most don’t…Thank you @hillaryclinton for all that you are and for being a HERO ☀️!! And thank you my #siddharthroykapur for being a walking talking encyclopedia on American politics and for thereby introducing me to Her 🙂. I couldn’t have imagined waking up at 6am to watch the primaries until you happened to me 😜.
