"I don't think it's only about actresses. I think we are a youth obsessed society... the pressure on women to remain eternally young is much more. But I say I am a proud 36-year-old," said the Kahaani actress.

The National Award winning actress said that women get worried because "desirability is often associated with age". But she added that "age is just a number really (and) we should not give anymore importance than that".

Vidya, who has impre-ssed cine-goers with films like No One Killed Jessica, Paa and Ishqiya besides The Dirty Picture, says while she doesn't "understand" box office numbers, she does become sad if her film doesn't do well. "I don't understand numbers... as long as I know that my films are doing well, I am happy. If the film is not doing well its makes me sad," said the actress, who last played a victim of domestic violence in Hamari Adhuri Kahani.
