Added by harini on Nov 10, 2011

Vidya Balan, who plays the character ‘Silk’ in her upcoming movie ‘The Dirty Picture’, said that she enjoyed playing the character immensely.

"I've celebrated my sexuality in this film. I would thank Ekta and Milan Luthria for giving me this opportunity. I've given it my all," she said in an interview with Bollywood Hungama.

When asked if it was difficult to get into the skin of a seductress she said, “"It's in every woman. We know how to seduce, how to woo. A lot of times we are shy too. We are inhibited to let that show. As an actor you get this opportunity that you let go and let loose. It's over the top, it's in your face sexuality. She wears her sexuality on her sleeve, but she's beyond the body. It's about the person, about her attitude. You can see that in the dialogues, the choices that she makes in the film."

She also added that Silk is the most colorful character she has played in her career.

"The way people shot her, it was exploitative in a sense. She was way ahead of her times. I really had a blast playing this character. You like sex, I'm sex, take it or leave it”, she said.
