Speaking to TNN, Vidya Balan said that the word 'sexy' is about what you do and how you do it. Elaborating on what she means, Vidya said that a simple action that showed her putting the tip of her finger in her mouth in a mobile related advertisement was enough to raise the heat. Vidya's male fans thought it was sexy!
Vidya was 'bold' in Ishqiya, and in The Dirty Picture Vidya becomes bolder by shedding any possible inhibitions she might have had initially during the making of the movie.
Portraying the South sex siren Silk Smitha on screen was never going to be an easy task. Vidya had to do complete justice to the character and still maintain a certain class that inherently belongs to Vidya. And that she has done with aplomb!
Speaking of Vidya Balan's bold and sexy avatar in The Dirty Picture, director Milan Luthria had said, “Vidya has given a soul to the character of Silk Smitha. Ekta Kapoor and I was zapped by where she has taken this character. Frankly, she has made the written material her own. She is Silk. Period."
Point taken Milan! In an era where actresses are ready to flaunt their body, simply to get into the 'sexy category', Vidya Balan stays apart. Let's hope her message is 'bold' and clear to all!
