Veena set to outshine Vidya in Dirty Picture remake

With Veena sporting sexy short numbers or a sari draped to show every curve, and donning OTT makeup, we wonder if the film is attempting to be true to its name — 'dirty'.

Ask director Trishul if glamour is the highlight of his film and he says, "The Dirty Picture portrayed Silk in a very crude manner. My film will tackle the subject differently. I'll show Silk's character in three different stages — before she got into the film industry, as an actor, and in the last stages of her life. I've used the right amount of glamour. There is no question of vulgarity."

But is his film for family viewing? "Of course. There is much more to Silk's life than just the sleaze. This is a realistic take on her life," says the filmmaker. He admits, though, that the film's title might be a deterrent for female audiences.

And while Trishul claims that his film will be an honest attempt to showcase Silk's life, he has not sought permission or got information about the late actor's life from her family. "I have exclusive information about her that I'll use for my film. Silk has acted with several top actors like Ambareesh, Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Chiranjeevi during her time. All these characters will be there in the film," says Trishul.

Parthibhan making Kannada debut?
The buzz is that Tamil actor R Parthibhan will portray the role that Naseeruddin Shah did in The Dirty Picture. "We have approached Parthibhan for the role. We have received a green signal from him and will be getting the confirmation in a couple of days," says Trishul.
