MUMBAI: Ekta Kapoor and Milan Luthria team up again after Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai to create a bold, humorous and dazzling multi-starrer set in the 80’s south film industry.
Billed as Moulin Rouge meets Himmatwala in terms of its look, The Dirty Picture chronicles the romantic journey of the erstwhile sensation, Silk Smitha, played by Vidya Balan – her rise to stardom and her subsequent fall.
Talking about her look in the film, Balan says, “Silk was made to give Indian men sleepless nights! She doesn’t leave much to imagination. Silk is every woman’s wild side and yet she’s soft where it matters. She was spunky, yet she can shock you with a straight face.”
Dirty Picture also sees Vidya Balan reunite with co-star and veteran actor Nasseruddin Shah after the 2010 hit Ishqiya. Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and directed by Luthria, the film also stars Tusshar Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi who play the key romantic interests in Silk’s life.
Vishal & Shekhar have composed the soundtrack for the movie, which releases later this year.
