Did Vidya Balan's THE DIRTY PICTURE inspire MISS LOVELY?

After making it to Cannes a couple of years ago and then also been screened at Melbourne International Film Festival, Ashim Ahluwalia's MISS LOVELY is finally seeing a release in India. Set in the lower depths of Bombay's 'C' grade film industry, MISS LOVELY follows the story of two brothers (one of them being now-famous Nawazuddin Siddiqui) who produce sex horror movies in the mid-80s.

Though comparisons are bound to take place with Vidya Balan's THE DIRTY PICTURE which was again set in the 80s and talked about the soft porn cinema that was made down South, leading lady of MISS LOVELY, Niharika Singh, says that it would be unfair to do so.

'Our film was shot and completed even before THE DIRTY PICTURE was initialised,' she reveals.

'In fact we were ready in 2009 itself but since our film doesn't have any star or backing, we are taking the festival route to create awareness,' says Niharika Singh, an ex-beauty queen, 'Even from the core storyline perspective, it would be wrong to say that we are similar to THE DIRTY PICTURE. That film was a biopic of Silk Smitha whereas our film is about brothers who make C-grade films.'

Well, we would like to see similarities, if at all, once the film hits the screens this Friday.
