The babe created waves with her role as Silk in the film. And that has not just impressed fans, but also academicians of a reputed institute who have incorporated her character as a case study
Vidya Balan’s character in The Dirty Picture, modeled on the sexy Silk Smitha, set a trend of sorts in Bollywood. VB was an inspiration for other B-town babes to experiment with edgier roles. But who thought that her character will be picked up by academicians from the Tata Institute Of Social Sciences (TISS) so that they can analyse the many layers of this spicy character.
The actor has always maintained in her interviews that playing Silk is something she found extremely liberating. Portraying a woman who’s not scared about making some really bold choices in life, and that too in a man’s world, earned VB equal number of compliments from both men and women alike.
Hence sociologists have pretty much recognised the potential this character has to become a detailed case study. We are sure doing research on it will be intellectually stimulating. Silk dissected in and out in will be an interesting read, what say BollywoodLifers?
