Veena Malik's debut in Kannada film industry may have drawn huge attention of the Sandalwood cine goers, but it has not gone well with political outfit Sri Rama Sene, which has demanded to replace her with an Indian actress. However, the director of the film, Trishul is not willing to pay heed to their demand by saying that they are not going to replace Veena at any cost.
The director told a leading daily that being in a democratic country allows him do what he likes to do. He completely believes that Veena Malik is the right choice for the female lead role in Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga. Trishal claims that he was not committing a crime and would not bow down to the demands of Sri Rama Sene. He went on to say that they should watch the movie before jumping into the conclusions.
Recently, the protesters, led by Sri Ram Sene President Pramod Muthalik, shouted slogans and sought to know why the makers of Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga had cast her when there are many talented Indian actresses who can fit into the role. They had also claimed that they will not allow an actress from an enemy nation to act in a Kannada movie.
Meanwhile, Trishul has spoken high about Veena Malik by claiming that no actress in Sandalwood, Kollywood, Tollywood and Bollywood could match the calibre of the Pakistani actress. However, it is not the first time the movie has hit the headlines for wrong reasons. Earlier, it almost seemed like landed in trouble after Bollywood producer Ekta Kapoor filed a complaint at the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce against the use of the title.
