|When she started working on The Dirty Picture it was only about being dirty for the film. Though she had her apprehensions before shooting the film, she overcame them well; and as she herself claims that she has celebrated her sensuality with the film, we know Vidya Balan has done a terrific job as Silk in the movie The Dirty Picture.
The brilliant actress acted as per her director’s vision and gave her cent percent to the character. But more than Vidya’s acting, it is her costumes in the film that have created much buzz. The deep-neck, cleavage-baring cholis in different colours and patterns were the essential part of Vidya’s wardrobe as without them Silk can never look like Silk Smitha in the movie.
Vidya even gained a few kilos for the film. Her designer Niharika Khan tells a website that for some scenes Vidya even required pads and prosthetics to look bustier, and that eventually took a toll on Vidya’s health. While shooting for the film a few months ago Vidya fell sick and was advised bed rest.
But all that hardwork has paid well. The movie is releasing this Friday on December 2, and the industry can’t stop raving about Vidya Balan. Nowadays, she is also known as Boombat Balan.
