Vidya Balan took one and all by surprise with her scintillating act as ‘Silk’ Smitha in Milan Luthria’s ‘The Dirty Picture’. And now its time for Pakistani starlet Veena Malik to follow suit. The controversial actress is all set to do a south Indian remake of the super-hit flick. Veena took to Twitter to break this news. She wrote, “Super excited to be the part of south film industry…..just signed ‘THE DIRTY PICTURE’…..!!!(sic).” Earlier, rumours had it that Tamil actress Nayanthara was approached for the role of ‘Silk’ in the film. But the lady denied being offered any such role. ‘The Dirty Picture’ helped Vidya bag the National Award for her stellar performance. It is yet to be seen whether Veena Malik stepped into Vidya’s shoes to play the lead role of ‘Silk’ in the south Indian remake or will she simply be playing a sidekick. Although Malik is highly excited with her upcoming project, but will she succeed in wooing the South Indian audiences with her oomph?
