First look of Vidya Balan on ‘The Dirty Picture’ released.

the Dirty PictureMumbai: The first look of “The Dirty Picture”, inspired by late southern sex icon Silk Smitha’s life, she has painted a perfect picture in an itsy-bitsy red blouse matched with luscious red lipstick.

The actress stands unconcerned even as 3 men, Naseeruddin Shah, Tusshar Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi, who get too close for comfort in the poster, which was released on social networking sites Friday.

Vidya Balan said in an interview “I loved the script and was almost shocked that they (Milan and Balaji) thought of me. I was shocked and thrilled because she is so unlike me. Silk Smitha’s sexuality is in your face. It is almost offensive.”

Dirty Picture” is an apt title for the movie. It is contemplative of our perception of her. We feel that she could not have made a pretty picture,” she added.

The film is set to release December 2, the birth anniversary of Silk Smitha, who became a symbol of sensuality after featuring in bold and semi-nude roles. Afterwards, financial crises and personal problems took a toll on her life.
