My Role In 'Dirty Picture' My Boldest Act Ever: Vidya
Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has confessed that her character, Silk, in Dirty Picture was the boldest character she has ever played in her career.
The actress said the part required a lot of mental preparation since she had to shed all her inhibitions to portray herself as the controversial south Indian actress Vijayalaxmi.
To ensure the success of the movie, Balan has adopted the strategy of promoting her film by adorning the retro look, which is also one of the biggest highlights of her movie.
"You are right. It's an extremely bold and brazen character. Silk is a girl who wants to make the most of every moment in her life and that was something I had to imbibe in me. So, there was no other kind of preparation, it was more of mental preparation. Reading the script and then discussing it with the writer and director, they would discuss about the attitude of the character, her child like behaviour and then she is considered a sex bomb, so mainly we discussed the part of how to maintain a balance. It was just mental preparation and nothing else," said Balan.
Saif Is The Number One Hero: Kareena
Kareena Kapoor may be reigning queen of Bollywood with a string of hits like Bodyguard, RA.One, 3 Idiots and Golmaal 3, to her credit, but she feels that beau Saif Ali Khan is the number one hero.
Things are going great guns for Kareena be it in terms of her box office success or propositions that are lined up for release including Agent Vinod opposite Saif besides Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine and Talaash opposite Aamir Khan.
"I don't think I am heroine number one. But Heroine is very special to me. After a long time, I am doing a performance oriented role. It is not for me to tell whether I am number one or not... I cannot say it," Kareena told reporters after the launch of the first look of Karan Johar's forthcoming film Ek Main Aur Ek Tu, where she is playing the leading lady opposite Imran Khan.
About her success mantra, Kareena said, "I feel I just have been lucky enough to get some good films, good directors, good scripts and good co-stars. For me Saif is the number one hero."
Abhishek In Awe Of Michael Caine

"I love the attitude that Caine carried in all his films. I've lost count of how many times I've seen The Italian Job. Although I have to admit I've seen Caine's version more times than Mark Wahlberg's. It's a cult film," said Abhishek in a statement.
The film, directed by Abbas-Mustan and starring Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Bobby Deol, will be the first big release of 2012 when it hits the screens Jan 6.
