Tusshar Kapoor, who has shed his guy-next-door image, for his upcoming movie The Dirty Picture says he is not disturbed of being dubbed as a 'soft porn' star.
Speaking to PTI in an interview, Tusshar Kapoor said, “There are lots of shades to my character. It is not something that will get overshadowed by the title. My image is not going to be damaged. Today, sex is not a taboo anymore. I think even on screen and even in our society people talk about it freely. Even if I get a soft porn image I don't have a problem with that."
Tusshar Kapoor will be seen in Milan Luthria's film, The Dirty Picture along with Vidya Balan. Vidya essays the role of yesteryear sex siren Vijaylakshmi or Silk Smitha, as she was popularly known. The film shows her journey to stardom followed by her sudden demise.
In The Dirty Picture, Tusshar Kapoor plays the role of a writer named Ramakant. While Ramakant is genuinely in love with the character portrayed by Vidya, veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah plays the character of an ageing superstar who lusts after her. Emraan Hashmi on the other hand hates her.
The intimate scenes involving Vidya Balan and her three co-stars in The Dirty Picture has been making waves already. Speaking about the hot and steamy scenes that he had to do with Vidya, Tusshar said, “I think it is part of your job.. as per the demand of the script you have to do intimate scenes. The only awkward feeling you get is when junior artists are watching you..and you want to get it right first. It is not uncomfortable because they are watching it but you just want to do it fast...you don't want to be stuck and doing the same thing again and again."
The Dirty Picture, produced by Shobha and Ekta Kapoor is expected to hit the theatres on December 2.
