Mumbai: People who have watched `The Dirty Picture` will certainly accept the fact that the very talented Vidya Balan has pulled off an award winning performance in the recently released film.

The actress, who left no stone unturned to bring back the late south Indian sex symbol Silk Smitha back on the silver screen has still not overcome the `Silk` fever.

Smitha’s character has impacted hugely on Vidya as the superstar was spotted wearing a burqa at a theatre where her film was being screened.

Apparently, Vidya wanted to see how the audiences were reacting so she visited Gaiety Galaxy, in Bandra to secretly get a first hand feedback.

By doing so, she in a way relived those portions in the film which show her watching her own films in theatre to see how the viewers react to the film.

During the intermission, on not finding too many people around , the actress cautiously removed the hijab (veil), to attend a phone call. But she couldn’t escape the eyes of a moviegoer, who called out her name aloud in excitement.

Vidya’s mission remained incomplete as she had to rush out of the theatre in order to avoid being crowded by fans.

Well Vidya, you don’t have to worry, your film is both critical and a commercial success.
