However confident and bindaas Vidya Balan might have seemed on the sets of The Dirty Picture, insiders say that the actress was extremely uncomfortable shooting in bizzare costumes and had to engage in a lot of mental conditioning before stepping out in those shocking clothes.
Vidya Balan had shocked everyone after pictures of her forthcoming film The Dirty Picture was made available to the public. The outrageous costumes she wore in the film portraying the real life of late Silk Smitha became the talk of the town.
In reality though, director Milan Luthria apparently had to sit with Vidya for a long time while she shared her inhibitions with him. Vidya Balan along with Milan went though hundreds of costume trials before they could come up with the appropriate look required for the screen.
However, what matters is the end result!
Speaking to a leading website, Milan Luthria said, “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."
Knowing Vidya Balan, this is for sure that watching Vidya portray a character that is so different from her own will be one helluva treat for her fans.
