Pramod Muthalik, the President of Sri Rama Sene, on Sunday (August 19) held a protest in Mangalore claiming that the makers of the film should consider this threat seriously, as the Hindi group won't let the movie hit the screens. He criticised Veena Malik in strong words by accusing her of having connections with terrorist organisations.
"Many actresses from Pakistan were earlier in the news for having connections with terrorist organisation and the makers of Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga have roped in Veena Malik without verifying Veena's background. I still do not understand why they signed the Pakistani actress when there is a good pool of talent in India and especially, in Karnataka," Muthalik said.
Earlier, Pramod Muthalik had warned the makers of Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga for roping in the Pakistani actress but the makers of the film had completely ignored him.
However, Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga is based on the real life story of yesteryear sex siren Silk Smitha and it also features Tamil actor Parthiepan and newcomer Akshay. But it is not a remake of Hindi movie The Dirty Picture starring Vidya Balan.
