Rise & Fall of Sex Symbol
The story is supposedly based on the life of South Indian Sensation Silk Smitha. The quintessential siren, Silk, knew her audiences and it didn’t seem like anything would stop the ambitious superstar, till it did, in the form of unrequited love. To the world and her fans, Silk (portrayed by Vidya Balan in dirty picture) was the queen of sensuality. But at heart, she was just like any other woman yearning for love in a ruthless world. The movie is about the tragedy behind the mask of the sex symbol who provided titillation to thousands of viewers but died a lonely and tragic death.
