"Yes, of course you can watch the film with your family. But since it's been given an A certification, it is an adult film," she told TOI, "Which means all those people in your family who are above 18 years of age can watch the film."
But a bold Vidya feels that the film is not too vulgar nor cheap. “If it's made aesthetically, like "Dirty Picture" has been, there is nothing vulgar or cheap about the film. And if it was cheap, I wouldn't have consented to doing it in the first place," she adds.
Filmmaker Karan Johar, who has watched the preview show of The Dirty Picture, is bowled over by Vidya Balan's performance and says that she has set a benchmark for the current rung of actresses.
"Her performance in The Dirty Picture is by far the bravest and best performance I have seen of any actor in years, she is the benchmark," Johar posted on his Twitter page.
