Synopsis: Imagine a make-up girl who became an extra and then the most wanted heroine of the early 80s.
Chronicling the meteoric rise and steep fall of the erstwhile screen sensation – Silk Smitha, The Dirty Picture is set against the colorful and entertaining backdrop of the South film industry of the 80’s.
The quintessential siren, Silk, knew her audiences, and it didn’t seem like anything would stop the fiercely ambitious starlet, till it did, in the shape of unrequited love.
To the world, she was the queen of sensuality. But at heart, Silk was just another woman craving true love.
An unfortunate encounter with deceit and infidelity led to dire consequences!
Balaji and Milan Luthria team up again after their smash hit, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, to create a dazzling and spectacular musical entertainer that is already in the news for being the most keenly anticipated drama of the year.
