Mumbai: Sleaze seems to be the latest ‘in thing’ in the world of entertainment. `Bigg Boss` on the small screen is getting raunchier with time and so is Bollywood. Sex is certainly selling like hot cakes!
Trade analysts in Bollywood, who have been taking a closer look at the way things are shaping up ahead of the release of big films starring Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham feel that Vidya Balan might snatch all the limelight with her oomph in `The Dirty Picture`.
Ranbir Kapoor’s `Rockstar` proved to be a huge disappointment at the Box Office despite the hype. Akki and John’s `Desi Boyz` is round the corner for its release and so is King Khan’s `Don 2`. But Vidya Balan might just steal the show with her sizzling hot avatar in her latest.
Talking to a tabloid, a trade expert said, “It`s probable that the movie (`The Dirty Picture`) will garner much money given its subject matter and universal appeal. It`s a film that will do well in the interiors as well as enchant the metro audience. Also, the budget of the movie isn`t as great as of `Don 2`. The storyline of `Desi Boyz` isn`t very family-friendly. So considering the pros and cons of the releases, it looks like `The Dirty Picture` will make the rosiest picture in the account books.”
Milan Luthria, director of `The Dirty Picture` said, “The response is good so far. We have worked with much dedication. As a filmmaker, I wish every film does well. Every film is unique in its own way, has a place of its own and looks promising. I don`t think you can really compare two films, because each has a different story to tell. Let`s wish for the best because that`s really all that we can do."
