Vidya Balan, the remarkable Bollywood actress, certainly knows how to adapt herself to the characters she is playing. The appalling trailer of her highly controversial film The Dirty Picture, has amazed everyone with how the actress has transcended from being recognized as a simple girl to a hot sexy siren in the film.
Vidya Balan has come a long way since her appearance in a Television serial as the bespectacled Radhika, one of the five sisters in the TV drama. In her six years in Bollywood, starting with her debut in Parineeta where she plays the shy Lalita to her string of varying roles in other memorable films, Vidya has made her presence known each time on the screen.
From playing the love interest of the beloved Munna Bhai in Lage Raho Munnabhai to the short but powerful role of a multiple sclerosis patient in Guru, which didn’t go unrecognized, Vidya displayed her talent well. There were also films like Kismat Konnection and Heyy Baby that did not do anything for her career, but Vidya kept looking for challenging roles to show her skills.
Her impressive performance in Bhool Bhulaiya, especially in the dance sequence “Ami je tomaar” brought her back into the limelight. Then came her hard-hitting performance as a single mother in Paa, which gained her much appreciation.
This was followed by Abhishek Chaubey’s Ishqiya, where she plays a dauntless and devious woman who will do anything to achieve her goals, even if it means getting into bed with a stranger. She won almost all the accolades from various award functions for this powerful performance alongside Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi.
She was again in the news with her role in No One Killed Jessica, where she plays the mourning sister of the model-actress Jessica Lall whose murder in a Delhi restaurant had created great furore among Delhiites. In the film, her desperate fight for justice for her sister brings out yet another show of talent from Vidya.
However, The Dirty Picture, which is scheduled for release on December 2, is something out of the extraordinary, for here, Vidya has chosen a completely different role, contrary to what she has ever portrayed thus far.
In Milan Luthria’s The Dirty Picture, which is a biopic on Silk Smitha, the sexy siren from down south, Vidya plays the bold and glamorous Silk, a role that would be the greatest challenge for her yet.
Looking at The Dirty Picture trailer, it is evident that Vidya will leave no stone unturned to bring the character of Silk Smitha live on the screen, more than a decade after the southern beauty’s mysterious death.
With just the right oomph, provocative gyrations, stimulating chest moves, revealing cleavage and sexy pout, Vidya is all set to ignite the same whistles and hoots that once echoed in the theatres where Silk’s movies were released.
Anyone and everyone who has viewed this film trailer is simply going gaga over her stupendous transition. Vidya has sealed the mouths of all those who were critical of her being able to play this bold and glamorous role.
