After tasting the success of a biopic film with ‘The Dirty Picture’, inspired by the life of late southern sex symbol Silk Smitha, producer Ekta Kapoor is gearing up to begin work on another biopic soon.
‘The Dirty Picture’ has run into dirty waters it seems. Family members of actress Silk Smitha, on whose life the film is based on, have alleged that the makers of the film did not seek permission from them before making the film.
Vidya Balan’s latest film, ‘The Dirty Picture’ is based on southern actress Silk Smitha’s life. While the film fraternity is going gaga about Vidya’s bold avatar, many feel that the actress does not resemble the sultry siren of the 80s.
Vidya Balan, who has proved her acting prowess by working in offbeat films like ‘Paa’ and ‘Ishqiya’ is all set to play South Indian sex icon ‘Silk Smitha in Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Dirty Picture’. But Vinu Chakravarthy, a filmmaker from down South, who claims to have created the “phenomenon” of the sexy ‘Silk’ siren is of the opinion that Vidya will not befit the role. He was blunt enough to say that the talented actress has a sad face.
