Pakistani actor and former “Bigg Boss” contestant Veena Malik has started to work on the Kannada version of The Dirty Picture, saying the film is packed with glamour and sentiments that will allow her to show her talent.

The Kannada version is also titled The Dirty Picture. It is produced by Venkatappa and directed by Trishul. “I am quite excited to be part of the film. I have heard the story and it looks quite interesting,” said Malik who recently attended the promo and photo shoot of the movie.

“As the lead heroine, I will get a lot of opportunity to perform. The director has packaged the film very well with glamour, sentiments and all other ingredients,” says the actor whose latest Bollywood venture is Deepak Bali’s film titled Daal Me Kaala Hai.

Producer Venkatappa’s son Akshay will play the male lead in the movie and the shooting will start soon. Venkatappa said that he will not face any date issues with Malik as all the problems relating to her visa have now been cleared.

Starring Vidya Balan, the Hindi version was an unofficial biopic on southern sex symbol Silk Smitha. It was a runaway success at the box office and won Balan her first National Award.

Ekta Kapoor, who produced The Dirty Picture in Hindi under her banner Balaji Telefilms, is against the same title being used by Venkatappa. Trishuli, however, says his story is different. “I have written a fresh story and it has a lot of native elements that is peculiar to Karnataka. But I thought the title, The Dirty Picture, will suit the story very well.

Fatima Jhanda | 10 years ago | Reply Veena Malik is a ball of controversy that seems to broadcast a rolling ball gathers a lot of moss and in the case of Venna loads of publicity which has translated into money in the bank! Her haters are ballistic because she is exposing hypcrocisy that exists in Pakistan and credit has to be given to her since she is an equal opportunity of people of men & women who do not care about her antics. In India if you ask people about Pakistan they have a dazed look but when you ask them about Veena Malik their eyes jump with enthusiasm! The Veena lovers will triumph over the Veena haters as no matter how religious a camp you sit in SEX sells
