Anju Mahendroo plays Devyani Chaubal in The Dirty Picture

Mumbai: The Ekta Kapoor-produced The Dirty Picture directed by Milan Luthria will see Anju Mahendroo playing the role of a journalist.

The film features a character inspired by film journalist Devyani Chaubal, who passed away in 1995.

Mahendroo, who knew Devyani on a personal level, will bring nuances of Devyani into her reel-life character.

In the film, Anju’s character has issues with Reshma’s (Vidya Balan) sky-rocketing popularity.
