Mumbai: We all know that Vidya Balan has shed all her inhibitions to portray south Indian sex-bomb Silk Smitha in Milan Luthria’s `The Dirty Picture`. The film which happens to be producer Ekta Kapoor’s ambitious project has raised many eyebrows for the explicit content even in its trailers.
Vidya has definitely taken all her fans by surprise but seems to have peeved her beau.
Siddharth Roy Kapur, UTV’s head honcho, who is dating the talented actress, is reasonably miffed with the over-the-top raunchy scenes of his ladylove, in the film that is slated to release this Christmas.
Talking to a tabloid, a source said, “Naturally, Siddharth wasn`t too pleased about her kissing scenes and asked her why she agreed to shoot them.”
“Siddharth also tried asking Vidya if there was a way she could get the scenes in question toned down,” added the source.
However, Ekta is in no mood to give in to Siddharth’s request, for she will not compromise with her work at any cost.
"The film is about the life of Silk Smitha sassy girl. But there`s also a good measure of dark humour, intense drama. So whatever Vidya`s shot, is in keeping with the subject and her character," said the source.
Talking about the bold character that Vidya essays in the film, director Luthria said, “It goes without saying that it`s not a very easy scene to shoot. The film seeks to push the envelope further, that`s the kind of clarity she and I share, right from the start. She`s very professional and everything went off fine. This is just one aspect of the movie, there are so many more. Nonetheless, there was no discomfort when she shot the scenes in question."
