The actress Vidya Balan, who is known for her classy and graceful roles in movies like ‘Parineeta’ and ‘Paa’, has now been rechristened as "Bombaat Balan", thanks to her portrayal of sensuous sex symbol ‘Silk’ in her upcoming movie ‘The Dirty Picture’.
“Bombaat Balan, people have started calling me Bombaat Balan! I found it quite funny the first time, but now I am used to it. Great!" said the actress in an interview.
‘The Dirty Picture’ is first of its kinds for Vidya Balan and she said that shooting for the movie wasn’t a cake walk.
"I would have to say that Silk (her character name in the film) has been an extremely demanding, exhausting, tiring and yet very fulfilling and exhilarating role for me to have played."
"It's like a workout. Sometimes you kill yourself during the workout and you feel dead after that. But it's also extremely exhilarating and there is a sense of adrenalin rush after the workout and that is how I feel after this film," she added.
Though the film was demanding, Vidya Balan said that she enjoyed very minute of filming it.
"Films in those times were full of masala and entertainment. Songs and dance used to start at any point in the film amidst pots, colours and oranges. I have done all that in this film, so all my wishes are fulfilled," she concluded.
The movie directed by Milan Luthria also features Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor. The movie will release on December 2, 2011.
