Anushka to star in 'The Dirty Picture' remake
"The Dirty Picture" raked huge numbers at the box office in Bollywood. This film was based on the life of the late actress Silk Smitha. Vidhya Balan donned the role of Silk Smitha. The role won Vidya Balan National award for her performance.
'The Dirty Picture' by Milan Luthria threw light on the life of Silk, played to perfection by Vidya Balan, an item girl who goes to her career's peak and falls down right to the bottom and ends her life eventually. The film was the topic of discussion even before its release and was subject to several controversies.
After tasting tremendous success with ‘The Dirty Picture’ in Hindi, the makers are planning to remake it in South. Although ‘The Dirty Picture‘ dubbed version released in Telugu and Tamil, it didn’t reach wider audience. So, the Bollywood makers are keen on remaking it in Tamil and Telugu.There are few producers that are vying for remake rights, but they are not ready to sell them off.
They believe that the success of The Dirty Picture was because of Vidya Balan and they are very stubborn about casting an actress of same stature if not more. They have Anushka on their mind and few other top South actresses too. First choice for South remake of The Dirty Picture is Anushka. They are yet to meet her though.
Earlier Anushka had donned the role of a commercial sex worker. Her acting in Arundhati was much spoken about. Anushka has agreed to don the role of Silk Smitha and the official announcement regarding this will be made in due course.
If they can rope in Anushka for The Dirty Picture, then they will surely strike gold in Tamil and Telugu as Anushka is very popular in both the languages. When an actress of Anushka’s caliber scorches the screen, then it should set the cash registers on fire.
