The actors of the past generation used to dread Devyani because she carried a poison pen, which used to expose shocking facts about celebs. She definitely wasn't the favourite of any actors of the Indian film industry. During those days Silk Smitha was a soft target for Devyani because of the kind of characters she used to play in her films. It is believed that though Devyani had openly attacked the South sex siren sevaral times, gradually over a period of time she softened up towards Silk.
When initially lead actress Vidya Balan was informed of the inclusion of the character, the actress thought it to be any regular journalist-actor conversation, which will be shot for The Dirty Picture. But later when she was informed about the power of Devyani during those times, Vidya was startled and shocked.
She learnt that the journalist was allegedly threatened by none other than Dharmendra, as Devyani was the one who made his marriage with Hema Malini public for the first time. Reportedly, it was only Rajesh Khanna from the film industry, who shared a cordial relationship with the journalist.
Well, looks like it will be fun to watch two real life characters, recreated on-screen in The Dirty Picture.
