Pics: Silk Smitha’s journey

Actress Vidya Balan, who will be
seen in an alluring and sensuous avatar as Silk Smitha in The
Dirty Picture
, says she does not fear being tagged as a “porn
star”.

Vidya will be playing the character of the southern sex
symbol Vijaylakshmi, better known as Silk Smitha, in Milan
Luthria’s film.

Vijaylakshmi, a small town girl, with her dance numbers
and bold performances reached the ultimate symbol of
sensuality in Southern cinema. Film critics have often
referred to her as a “soft porn” actress.

However Vidya said, “I think I am an actor playing a
character Silk Smitha. I don’t think there is a possibility of
that tag being attached to me. I just hope it adds another
shade to me as an actor.”

Produced by Ekta Kapoor,The Dirty Picture, stars
Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor in pivotal
roles.

The film, chronicling the journey of the yesteryear
seductress and her early demise, is slated to release on
Smitha’s birthday, December 2.

Here’s a look at the trailer:
