A few days ago, we had reported how controversial starlet Rakhi Sawant had claimed that she would do a better job than Vidya Balan in the Bengali remake of The Dirty Picture, which had prompted Balaji CEO Tanuj Garg to scoff at her lofty ambitions on a micro-blogging site.
However, it seems that the original ‘Dirty’ actress Vidya Balan seems to be reacting to this challenge quite sportingly. Balan, who played the role of South sex siren Silk Smitha in the Milan Luthria directed biopic, was quoted saying, "I am looking forward to see how Rakhi portrays the character of the bold bombshell. I think she has a lot of masti."
The Dirty Picture, which also starred veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah alongwith Tusshar Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi, was acclaimed both critically and commercially and the film is soon to be remade in Bengali starring the sultry Sawant and in Kannada starring Pakistani actress Veena Malik.
