MUMBAI: Bollywood’s favourite newlyweds, Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur have returned from their short vacation in France.

Spotted at the airport yesterday, Vid and Sid, as they are fondly known, were clad in relaxed airport chic loungewear. Vidya chose a simple printed maxi dress, which she covered up with a long black shirt, while her husband wore a black shirt and jeans.

Vidya was at the prestigious Cannes film festival as a jury member, and unfortunately came under much fire for her fashion choices. She had chosen her favourite designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee to dress her, but many sections of the media criticised her varied looks.

Vidya, however, has found a strong supporter in fellow Cannes star Sonam Kapoor. Sonam recently said, “I was there and I know how people reacted. It was amazing. We need to look at her as someone who has done us proud. There, people are looking at the work she has done in India and as a wonderful and talented human being.”

Sonam even went a step further to add, “I was present at the ceremony. As soon as Vidya and the other jury members entered, they got a standing ovation. That is the kind of respect and recognition she got. She was next to Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg. But instead of concentrating on this tremendously beautiful and talented woman, people are looking at her clothes and trying to bring her down. That’s very sad.”
