Vidya Balan took time to become Silk Smitha

The Dirty Picture director Milan Luthria reveals that a lot of talking and costume trails went into transforming the Ishqiya actor for her latest sensuous act

When filmmaker Milan Luthria sat down with the script of The Dirty Picture he was sure he wanted an actor who could look sexy and punch in a power-packed performance. Also, the lady to portray Silk Smitha on screen had to have the deadly combination of boldness and innocence. Since there are not many leading ladies in Bollywood who can boast of all those qualities, the Once Upon A Time Mumbaai director didn’t have great difficulty finding his Silk Smitha. Vidya Balan has proved with Ishiqya that she has no problems in attempting bold and daring characters onscreen. However Luthria reveals that initially the sensuous babe was a wee bit conscious. He says, “It wasn’t easy for Vidya on the first day. She was an absolute professional in front of the camera, but behind the scenes there was much mental conditioning she had to engage in, before stepping out on the sets in those shocking costumes.” Further the Ishqyia actor tried out nearly hundreds of costumes before zeroing down the final outfits for the film. Today things are different. Luthria is more than pleased with the outcome. He says, “It requires a great deal of effort to present a lady in a manner that looks sensuous but not vulgar. I am sure that people are standing up and noticing her and the film for that very reason.”
