The Dirty Picture will be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu to woo the audiences of the states from where the story originates.
There has been great hype and controversies surrounding Ekta Kapoor’s “The Dirty Picture” ever since the film was announced. The surprising transformation of Vidya Balan from a demure girl next door to a sex symbol in “The Dirty Picture” has taken the industry by storm and so it is obvious that everyone is waiting eagerly for the release of the film that is slated for December 2.
The latest from the filmmakers is that the film will be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu as well to target the audience in the south too, since the film is based on the life of Silk Smitha, a sex siren from the south. So it is not only the north that will enjoy the movie but also the south that will get a taste of this highly controversial film.
According to a source connected with the film, “It seems quite relevant to have the film released in South Indian versions as Silk Smitha was hugely popular in South Indian films. The South Film Industry is more likely to relate to the film, which is a bio of Silk Smitha, rather than the north, which is a Bollywood enthusiast.” Besides Vidya Balan, who plays Silk Smitha, being a South Indian could enhance the fact.
As per rumours, the film is said to be chiefly based in the South having been shot mostly at the Ramoji Rao Studios, which is in Hyderabad. Also Naseeruddin Shah plays a typical superstar of South Indian films.
