Veena Malik has landed the role of Silk Smitha in the Kannada film titled Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga.
For quite a while, the talk about Ekta Kapoor’s The Dirty Picture being remade in the south has been doing the rounds and the actresses like Nikitha Thukral, Charmee and Pooja Gandhi were reportedly approached for the role. However, it’s Veena Malik, the hot import from Pakistan, who has landed the role.
Moreover, the producer Venkatappa claims that the film he’s making is not the remake of The Dirty Picture starring Vidya Balan. The producer says:
” I am coming up with a better interpretation of the south siren’s botched up life. I am not bothered about taking any remake rights from Ekta Kapoor because, none has the ownership of the story of Silk Smitha.”
“Yes, I am doing a Kannada film based on the life of Silk Smitha…I will join the sets on May 12. I always wanted to have a career in the south too, and now it has happened.”
Veena Malik is reported to be getting Rs. 85 lakh for her role.
