Music-packed, humorous and unabashed, THE DIRTY PICTURE traces the bold, controversial, and yet emotional romances of Silk.

Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan have been cast opposite each other for the first time.

About Silk:
Born Vijaya lakshmi (her actual name) in to a poor family in Eluru (Andhra Pradesh), she left school early, driven to become a movie star. Going in with her aunt in Madras (now Chennai), she soon found a sponsor who re-named her Smitha. After garnering much notice and acclaim with her first major role in the Tamil movie, VANDI CHAKKARAM (The Wheel) in 1979, Smitha assumed the name "Silk," after the name of her character.

Silk was the biggest South-Indian screen sensation, known for her bold and daring erotica on celluloid. Film makers could not imagine releasing a film without a titillating song or cameo by Silk. She was every film maker's lucky charm. Her most popular one is LAYANAM (Malayalam, 1989) directed by Thulasi Das. In fact LAYANAM became so famous that it was remade in Hindi as the controversial RESHMA KI JAWANI.
