B-town actor Vidya Balan said her upcoming film 'The Dirty Picture' is not completely based on the life of Silk Smitha but rather it is about a dancing star.
Addressing a press conference in Kolkata on Thursday, Vidya said, "The heroine´s name is Silk, but it is not based on Silk Smith's life. The Dirty Picture is about a dancing star from 80s. I wore 100 costumes in the film and you will get the flavours of 80s in the film."
She was in the city on Thursday to launch ´Ivory Furniture & Accessories´ from the house of Irony, which is specialized in wrought iron furniture.
"When I come to Kolkata, it feels like home...everyone is so warm and loving," said Vidya.
She said: "I want to work in Bengali movie but Ritu da (Rituparno Ghosh, filmmaker) is not calling me."
The actor said she came to the City of Joy to promote her film ´The Dirty Picture´ as Kolkata is ´lucky´ for her.
"Kolkata is always lucky for me," she said.
