Ekta Kapoor’s The Dirty Picture directed by Milan Luthria seems to be a hotseat for controversies. A source close to the film informed Mumbai Mirror that the story based on the life of Silk Smitha also has a character based on the controversial film journalist (late) Devyani Chaubal.
Anju Mahendroo, the actress known for her relationship with Rajesh Khanna, will be seen playing a film journalist who traces Silk Smitha’s (played by Vidya Balan) growth in the south Indian film industry.
It was Anju herself who suggested that her character should be based on Devyani. “I told Milan that I knew Devyani at a personal level and it would be easier for me to base my character on her,” revealed Anju.
Explaining how her character is similar to that of Devyani, Anju said, “In one scene, Vidya comes up to me and asks ‘Who are you?’ When I introduce myself, she shoots back, ‘Oh so you are the one who writes all the nasty things about me’. And then I answer back, ‘Well, it’s better to be written about than not’.
