Chennai, April 18 (): The Pakistani model turned actress Veena Malik, who was seen as an item girl in Gali Gali Chor Hai is all set to do the south remake of the Vidya Balan’s The Dirty Picture.
Veena Malik is very excited by getting this offer and she broke the news through twitter on Tuesday.
The Bollywood blockbuster of 2011, “The Dirty Picture” awarded Vidya Balan the National Award for best actress. The actress, Vidya Balan was criticized at first for her appearance in bold nudity and bold sexual performance in the movie.
The film was created on the real story of South Indian actress Silk Smitha, who was largely talked about in her period for her bold portrayal of nudity. She was also called “soft porn actress”.
Once Dirty Picture was a hit and Vidya’s stellar performance bagged her National Award, the steps for remaking the movie in south were taken. Earlier, there were rumours that Nayanthara was given priority for the Silk Smitha’s role in the film. But, it was said Nayanthara denied doing such role.
Further reports say other famous south actresses were also approached for the remake, no one were interested in doing the role of siren Silk Smitha done by Vidya Balan.
Veena Malik, who became famous with her hot presence in Bigg Boss 4 and who did an item song ‘Channo’ in the Akshaye Khanna-starrer Gali Gali Chor Hai, has accepted to do the bold role of Silk Sumitha.
Veena always stays in controversy in the media and most recently her bold nude photo shoot which was shown on the FHM magazine cover shows her dare character.
Veena Malik signed the movie and shared her happiness to fans tweeting as, “Super excited to be the part of south film industry…..just signed “THE DIRTY PICTURE”…..!!!(sic).”
