Emraan Hashmi to kiss Vidya Balan in The Dirty Picture
When actor Vidya Balan was signed on to play Silk Smitha’s role, she knew she had to go all out to play the South sex siren. While she has been working doubly hard on her body, her clothes and even her language, she is also working on shedding her inhibitions on screen. It was a known fact that Balan would have to wear revealing clothes and indulge in some amount of skin show but there is one recent addition — Emraan Hashmi’s lips.
After Once Upon A Time in Mumbai, filmmaker Milan Luthria has taken a strong liking to Hashmi and when he asked him to be a part of The Dirty Picture, the actor readily agreed. Apparently, Hashmi will play one of her lovers and yes, there will be a love making scene too. Says a source from the film unit, “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.”
Balan isn’t nervous about the scene as reported. She’s apparently well prepared to play her part convincingly. Except for the DOP and Milan, no one is apparently allowed on the sets when these scenes in question are being shot.
Following the recent success of Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Murder 2’, the film makers have already announced ‘Murder 3’ as their next project.
Co-producer Mukesh Bhatt said that they will soon announce its cast.
However, sources say that actor Emraan Hashmi will continue to play the lead role again but the female lead is yet to be known.
With no time to celebrate the success of Murder 2, Emraan is said to have been summoned by the makers to report to the sets of ‘The Dirty Picture’ in Hyderabad where he will star opposite actor Vidya Balan.
The shooting of ‘The Dirty Picture’ had got delayed due to the recent Telangana Stir in Hyderabad.
2011/8/31 8:20:10 She is at her boldest ever in "The Dirty Picture", but actress Vidya Balan says she never felt a sense of discomfort shooting for the movie as she was in the "trusted hands" of director Milan Luthria.
"I have never enjoyed being a woman more than I did while shooting for 'The Dirty Picture'. I wasn't uncomfortable doing bold scenes because I knew I was in trusted hands," Vidya told reporters here Tuesday.
The actress, who reprises late southern siren Silk Smitha's rise and fall as a glamourous star in the film, spoke at the theatrical launch of the film.
The movie also features Tusshar Kapoor, Emraan Hashmi and Naseeruddin Shah.
"I have worked with Naseer before but this time it was easier...I was less nervous this time," said Vidya, who had teamed up with the veteran actor in "Ishqiya".
On working with Bollywood's serial kisser Emraan, with whom she has locked lips in the film, she said: "I was wondering how it would be with Emraan, but it was fun."
The trailer promises viewers that Vidya would indeed be seen in a never-seen-before avatar in the film, which is set for release Dec 2.

"That's the novelty value. We wanted to take the film to the public directly so that they can interact with the stars and enjoy the music," he added.
The actors themselves are quite excited about the colourful music launch.
Tusshar tweeted: "Hello people, on Friday, 4th Nov, pls come to 'The Dirty Picture' audio launch. It's at 6 pm at Inorbit, Malad and free for the public. It should be a first-of-its-kind audio launch where you will witness live performances by the star cast and singers.
"The Dirty Picture", produced by Ekta Kapoor, chronicles the rise to fame, gradual fall and death of southern actress Silk Smitha. The film is releasing Dec 2.
During the last two days media was abuzz with the news about Bollywood beauty Vidya Balan’s secret marriage with UTV Motion Pictures head Siddarth Roy Kapoor with whom she is said to be dating since last few months. Vidya Balan, who came to know about the spicy gossips related to her secret marriage, has come to media and condemned them. She said “I am busy with my ‘dirty Picture’ shooting. Then how someone found me marrying to some one and fleeing away with him for Honeymoon? It is just rubbish news. Right now, I have no time to breathe. My first preference is my film career and nothing else.”
Her ‘Dirty Picture’ is produced by Ekta Kapoor, and it directed by Milan Luthria.
2011/9/6 4:33:00 If people wish to remember him for his on-screen kisses, so be it, says the somewhat exasperated actor who has for long been looking for an image change.
The 32-year-old actor came to be known as Hindi cinema's serial kisser after numerous lip locks in films like "Murder", "Zeher", "Aashiq Banaya Apne", "Gangster" and "Jannat".
"The tag would never go. I tried to get rid of it, but it follows me everywhere. I have done so many films with it (kissing) and so many people went and watched those films. So probably they want to remember me for that. And if kissing is a great way to remember me, I have no complaints! My audience base is there and I can't change overnight," Emraan told IANS in an interview.
"I am trying out different things in my forthcoming films. Hopefully it would be another dimension, which would change people's perception about me," he added.
"The Dirty Picture" is said to have Emraan in yet another kissing scene, this time with actress Vidya Balan. He however stresses that the film, based on the life of the late southern sex icon Vijayalakshmi aka Silk Smitha, takes sexuality to a different level.
"It's a different take on sexuality. Sexuality in my films was shown differently before this. 'The Dirty Picture' takes it to a different level," said Emraan. (IANS)

2010/12/10 15:55:56 In fact, this is not about any dirty picture of Vidya Balan. It’s the title of a Bollywood film based upon yesteryear hot babe Silk Smitha’s life story. No one could forget the scorching looks of Silk Smitha. She was so popular that she even played lead roles in some films. But, all of a sudden she ends her life by jumping out of her flat. Some says it was an accident and not suicide and some argues that she commits suicide in a depressed mood because of her failures in her personal life. However, her death remains a mystery until now. Her film career and the twists in her personal life indeed are no less to a film story. Hence, Bollywood producer Ekta Kapoor got attracted with her life story and starts a film giving title ‘The dirty picture.’ Vidya Balan is playing Silk Smitha’s role in this film and Bollywood hero Ajay Devgan plays the role of the man who disturbs her life. Milan Luthria is directing this movie.
Vidya Balan will remember shooting her first bathtub scene for all the wrong reasons.
Playing the south siren Silk Smitha in director Milan Luthria’s film Dirty Picture requires Vidya Balan to not just wear revealing clothes, but also take dips in the bathtub. While shooting for her first such scene at Filmcity in Goregaon recently, Vidya unfortunately ended up getting skin rashes. How?
From what we hear, director Milan Luthria ensured minimal crew on the set, and Vidya Balan, wrapped in a towel and a swimsuit beneath, stepped into the bathtub and began filming the scene that had her bathing and playfully blowing the soap bubbles. She did feel itchiness in her skin initially but ignored it. But when rashes began to appear all over her body, the actress panicked, stepped out of the bathtub, got dressed and left to see a dermatologist.
It’s not clear what caused Vidya’s rashes, because the crew used only mineral water for the bathing scene. It could be that Vidya’s skin caught allergy from the soap that was used.
The second schedule of Dirty Picture will be shot in Hyderabad. By then Vidya’s skin rashes would disappear.
Vidya Balan’s special preparation to play the voluptuous Silk Smitha
Vidya Balan has a mountain to climb. Her role in director Milan Luthria’s film Dirty Picture gives her the boldest makeover she could imagine.
The tragic life of Silk Smitha, the voluptuous siren of South who made a name for herself through raunchy roles in the 80s and 90s, will be recreated in Ekta Kapoor’s production Dirty Picture. Vidya Balan, signed on to play the siren, is supposed to wear costumes like low-neck blouses, translucent tube tops, petticoats, hot pants, et al.
Not just this, Vidya has to put on weight to look chubby and curvier for the latter part of her role. She will be required to bare her mid-riff, thighs and cleavage.
Clearly the demand of skin show and outward display of sexuality has unnerved Vidya. We hear that she has asked her costume designer Niharika Khan to provide her with the costumes a month in advance so that she can get used to them.
Director Milan Luthria was not surprised by Vidya’s demand. He states very clearly that Vidya needs to get a lot bolder in expressing her sexuality in the role.
Ekta Kapoor clarifies her forthcoming films are not as dirty as they are made out to be.
Balaji Productions' highly talked about film Ragini MMS' first look was launched by Ekta Kapoor yesterday at a suburban multiplex.
Ekta clarified, that Ragini MMS is not like Paranormal Activity as per the rumours doing the rounds.
On asked how come both of her forthcoming sensational films 'Ragini MMS' and 'Dirty Picture' (starring Vidya Balan as late south sex symbol Silk Smitha) revolve around sex, Ekta clarified, "I don't make films to please people. Both 'Ragini MMS' and 'Dirty Picture' are not porn films as they are made out to be."
However, both films have loads of sex and lovemaking scenes. The film is said to have footage of how young couples talk in their bedrooms too!
Ekta added, "Ragini MMS will be the scariest date movie in India so far. It has the ultimate catchphrase 'They didn't know it then, but it was a threesome!'
While Ragini MMS will release in May, Vidya starrer Dirty Picture is still under production.
(IANS) The makers of Vidya Balan starrer "The Dirty Picture" have clarified that the film is not a formal biopic.
"With reference to the legal notice received and the ongoing speculation about the film, Balaji wishes to clarify that 'The Dirty Picture' is the romantic journey of a fiercely ambitious starlet who dreams of making it big on the silver screen," said a statement issued by the film's publicist.
"It draws inspiration from the strugglers in the 1980s whose indomitable spirit made them emerge triumphant and create a unique space for themselves in a male-dominated film industry. The film is not a formal biopic or biography, as is being speculated. It is a work of fiction, and any character's resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is coincidental," it added.
The clarification was issued after a media report that claimed that southern sex icon Silk Smitha's brother, V. Naga Vara Prasad, who lives in a village in Andhra Pradesh, sent a legal notice to the film's producer Ekta Kapoor and director Milan Luthria for not taking permission from the late actress' family before making the movie. Prasad claims that he learned about the film through television.
Silk Smitha committed suicide in 1996.
" 'The Dirty Picture', a spectacular musical entertainer, is in essence, a love story, and a celebration of the never-say-die spirit of every industry newcomer," said the statement.
Vidya has teamed up with Naseeruddin Shah, Tusshar Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi in the film, which is relasing Dec 2.
Southern film circuit’s yesteryear sex bomb and controversial star Silk Smitha whose life ends in a mysterious way has inspired the director Milan Luthiria and producer Ekta Kapoor. They are making a Hindi film ‘Dirty picture’ based upon her life story. Bollywood hot beauty Vidya Balan and Ajay Devagan are playing the lead roles and Nassirrudden Shaw, Imran Hashmi and Tushar Kapoor are playing key roles in this movie.
Ever since, the film shooting begins at Bollywood, it is generating an unusual hype for it with its spicy gossips, rumors and controversies.
Initially, a story writer claims that no one is authorized to make film on Silk Smitha because he is the one who gave her that name and so he claims he has the sole rights on her life story.
Then, there were gossips that Vidya Balan who is enacting Silk Smitha’s role refuses to appear in sleeveless jacket. (But, later she even appears without a jacket for this film). Next, she was asked to gain some extra weight to suit her character for which she has refused. Then, the director has to run the show attaching ‘hip pads’ to enhance her bottom size.
Then, about the Vidya Balan raging temptations in the unit members with her steamy intimate scenes exposing her curvy shapes in half naked position.
The latest spicy news of this film is the first-looks-poster released recently. While, the poster gives us 1980’s feel with its design, Vidya Balan posing with three men around her sets fire in the viewers. Here is the first-look-poster.
Bollywood beauty Vidya Balan and Imran Hashmi’s upcoming movie ‘Dirty Picture’ based upon the real life story of yesteryear actress late Silk Smitha has already surrounded with many controversies. Its posters, scenes, concept and the title everything leads to a controversy.
Now, this film may soon land in legal problems also, as some of the close relatives of late actress Silk Smitha have found this film projecting her in a very bad light. They said to be objecting to the recently released poster and the intimate scenes between Viday Balana and Imran Hasmi that projects Silk more as a prostitute than as an actress in the film industry. It came to know they wrote a letter to the film makers in this regard and warned them to drag to court if they try to defame their relative Silk Smitha.
So far, there is reaction comes out from the film makers. Dirty Picture is directed by Milan Ludria and produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor.
2011/11/18 22:58:40 While, late Silk Smitha's brother Naga Vara Prasad is drawing battle lines with 'Dirty Picture' and its producer Ekta Kapoor for defaming his sister and slaps legal notices, Ekta Kapoor is all set to release the film now in Telugu also. Renowned film distribution company Indra Films offering a whooping amount has bagged the rights of the film. The Telugu version of the film is simultaneously releasing on December 2nd along with Hindi version.
Vidya Balan enacts the role of Silk Smitha and she goes to her extreme limits in this film with her skin shows. Emran Hashmi, Naseerudden Shaw and Tusshar Kapoor have played important roles in this film, directed by Milan Luthria.
Vidya will go for `butt pads`, cosmetic enhancements in ‘Dirty Picture’
Controversy stricken film ‘Dirty Picture’ produced by Ekta Kapoor will see talented actress Vidya Balan in a voluptuous avatar.
Reportedly, the actress, who otherwise has a slim frame, will be going for cosmetic enhancements to justify the role of southern sex symbol, the late Silk Smitha.
Ekta wanted Vidya to gain weight for the role but the ‘Ishqiya’ star was reluctant to do so. So the producer thought of an alternative solution to make the lead actress of her film look as appealing as Silk Smitha.
She instructed one of her assistant directors and make up artist to ensure Vidya looks sexier.
Vidya will go for hip, butt and bust pads to add volume to her figure.
Whether or not Vidya will be able to carry her raunchy avatar is something for us to wait and watch. But it’s certainly good news for all the male fans of the starlet, for they will get to see Vidya get bolder than ever before.
While the industry is abuzz speculating on the chemistry between Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, off-screen and onscreen (in Guru), someone else from the cast of Guru is basking in the glory of all the sizzle in the film. No it’s not Mallika Sherawat but the striking Vidya Balan.
Right from Parineeta to Lage Raho Munnabhai, we have known Vidya Balan as the beautiful girl-next-door. But her traditional girl image might change with her next film Guru where she has a smooch scene. She has a lip-lock with R. Madhavan in the film.
This is the first onscreen kiss for Vidya. In the film, Madhavan proposes to Vidya and this is followed by a kiss. Interestingly, Madhavan had a similar scene with Soha Ali Khan in Rang De Basanti in which they both kiss after Madhavan proposes Soha to marry him.
So while the Hrithik-Aishwarya smooch in Dhoom 2 was talked about more than anything else in the film, will Abhishek miss out in Guru too, with the Vidya-Madhavan kiss generating more hype? Only time will tell…
2011/6/1 10:00:20 Veteran actress Silk Smitha, who once ruled the silver screens with her sex appeal, has commits suicide long back. But, her death still remains a mystery. While some agrees that she died by falling from the roof of an apartment some others argue that she commits suicide due to problems in her life. However, her life story inspires Bollywood producer Ektha Kapoor who is now making a film in Hindi ‘The dirty picture.’
Bollywood hot beauty Vidya Balan is enacting Silk Smitha’s character in this movie. Despite knowing that, the story has some adults scenes Vidya Balan has signed the film. Naseerudhin Shaw, lip-locks specialist Imran Hasmi and some others have played important roles in this movie. Director Milan Ludria is taking every precaution to avert leaking of hot scenes from the location. Hence, he has banned cell phones with cameras in the location. However, he has released this hot still of Vidya Balan to please the media and audiences.
