First look: Vidya Balan as Silk Smitha in The Dirty Picture

Ekta Kapoor and Milan Luthria team up once again after the blockbuster Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai to create a bold, humorous and dazzling multi-starrer set in the 80s South film industry. Billed as Moulin Rouge meets Himmatwala in terms of its look, The Dirty Picture chronicles the romantic journey of erstwhile sensational actress Silk Smitha (played by Vidya Balan), her rise to stardom and her subsequent fall.

Talking about her look in the film, Vidya says, "Silk was made to give Indian men sleepless nights! She doesn't leave much to the imagination. Silk is every woman's wild side and yet, she's soft where it matters. She's spunky, yet she can shock you with a straight face." The Dirty Picture also sees Vidya Balan reunite with her Ishqiya co-star Nasseruddin Shah. Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and directed by Milan Luthria, the film also stars Tusshar Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi, who play the key romantic interests in Silk's life.

Ready to sizzle and shock in her all new avatar, Vidya says, "I'm beginning to feel like Silk... a bit slippery. I've always loved my curves and curves love Silk!" Music composer duo Vishal-Shekhar have composed the soundtrack for this keenly-anticipated flick which releases later this year.
