The shooting of The Dirty Picture is underway and as we told you a few days ago Naseeruddin Shah, who takes on the role of a south-Indian superstar, and Vidya Balan have already filmed a song sequence for the upcoming movie.
The film tells the story of the life of the Southern siren Silk Smitha, played by Vidya Balan. The movie is produced by Ekta Kapoor and directed by Milan Luthria who both last worked together on the hit Once Upon a Time in Mumbai.
Tusshar Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi also star in the movie opposite Vidya Balan. According to sources Vidya Balan is all set to lock lips with Emraan Hashmi. The source told the media “Vidya does not just have a love-making scene with Tusshar, Emraan is also there for a special sequence in the film. And the famous serial kisser will again be doing what he does best — kissing! Emraan has flown to Hyderabad and is currently shooting for the sequence with Vidya now.”
The awaited movie is all set to release on December 2nd, 2011, which is Silk Smitha’s birthday. A source told the media that the reason for this is because down south Silk Smitha was a big sensation and there was a point when “filmmakers could not imagine releasing a film without a titillating song or cameo by Silk.” The source went on to say, “the film is being released on her birthday only to pay tribute to her.”
