Check her out in the hot new stills of the film

Vidya Balan sizzles in Ektaa Kapoor’s film on Silk Smitha, titled The Dirty Picture. The film also stars Emraan Hashmi, Naseeruddin Shah and Tusshar Kapoor among others. Chronicling the meteoric rise and steep fall of the erstwhile screen sensation, The Dirty Picture is set against the colourful and entertaining backdrop of the south Indian film industry. 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 that led to dire consequences!
