The Dirty Picture gets more dirtier

Published: Friday, August 19, 2011, 11:24 [IST]

Director Milan Luthria's The Dirty Picture is getting more dirtier. The film is all set to present a series of real life characters on-screen. Till now the highlight of the film was Silk Smitha character, however the recent inclusion of one more strong real life character has increased the weight of the plot. If reports are to be believed the character on a dreaded female journalist from 70-80's called Devyani Chaubal will be featured in The Dirty Picture.

The actors of the past generation used to dread Devyani because she carried a poison pen, which used to expose shocking facts about celebs. She definitely wasn't the favourite of any actors of the Indian film industry. During those days Silk Smitha was a soft target for Devyani because of the kind of characters she used to play in her films. It is believed that though Devyani had openly attacked the South sex siren sevaral times, gradually over a period of time she softened up towards Silk.

When initially lead actress Vidya Balan was informed of the inclusion of the character, the actress thought it to be any regular journalist-actor conversation, which will be shot for The Dirty Picture. But later when she was informed about the power of Devyani during those times, Vidya was startled and shocked.

She learnt that the journalist was allegedly threatened by none other than Dharmendra, as Devyani was the one who made his marriage with Hema Malini public for the first time. Reportedly, it was only Rajesh Khanna from the film industry, who shared a cordial relationship with the journalist.

Well, looks like it will be fun to watch two real life characters, recreated on-screen in The Dirty Picture.
