Rakhi Sawant – ‘Silk’ In Bengali remake of The Dirty Picture

By | May 2, 2012


The Dirty Picture, Vidya Balan-starrer movie was inspired by late southern sex icon Silk Smitha’s life. Vidya Balan has won the prestigious National Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Silk Smitha in the movie, ‘The Dirty Picture’. After the big success of the movie The Dirty Picture, now decided to do a Bengali remake of The Dirty Picture which being directed by Shatabdi Roy and produced by Tapas Paul.

Mumbai mulgi Rakhi Sawant announcing that she has decided to do a Bengali remake of The Dirty Picture, who also took the opportunity to lash out at oomph-y superstar Vidya Balan. Rakhi claims that Vidya Balan has done nothing in the The Dirty Picture and she will do better job than Vidya in the Bengali remake. In a typically feisty punchline, Rakhi added that a sari is meant to be taken off in films and not worn, and that it is solely for this reason that a film becomes a hit, not because of its star, again hinting that Vidya’s blockbuster status is a fluke of good timing.

Rakhi has mentioned on Karan Johar’s chat show and other platforms that she has been a victim of the casting couch, a candour that has won her many fans. Perhaps playing the role will come easily to her. Also, like Silk Smitha, Rakhi has found considerable success for an item girl, an industry type that usually ends up being sidelined rather unfairly.

The makers of this Bengali remake met Rakhi because they were impressed with her performance in an item number in the Bengali film Om Shanti.
