Vidya Balan's upcoming movie The Dirty Picture finally lands up in the High Court, after late actress Silk Smitha's brother filed a writ petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court alleging character assassination of his sister, and saying that the family was not contacted by the filmmakers.

IBN LIVE reports that the writ petition has been filed after issuing two legal notices to Balaji Telefilms, the producers of the film. As the filmmakers failed to reply to the notices, Prasad decided to move the High Court over the issue.

Smitha's family came to know that they made the obscene film based on inputs given by an alleged boyfriend of Smitha in Chennai. A furious Prasad lashed out at the makers of The Dirty Picture and asked, “What right do the producer and the director have to make this film, without the family's consent?"

But now, when things have finally taken a nasty turn and got entangled in High Court issues, will The Dirty Picture have a smooth release or it has to undergo several unwanted hurdles in furture?
