In a classic instance of the subject returning the gaze, Rakhi Sawant has decided to do a Bengali remake of The Dirty Picture, the Vidya Balan-starrer that was based on ill-fated item girl, Silk Smitha. The film, being directed by Shatabdi Roy and produced by Tapas Paul, will naturally be bolder.

No one is announcing this louder than bindaas Mumbai mulgi Rakhi Sawant, who also took the opportunity to lash out at oomph-y superstar Vidya Balan. Vidya Balan, she claims, has done nothing in the The Dirty Picture. In a typically feisty punchline, Rakhi added that a sari is meant to be taken off in films and not worn, and that it is solely for this reason that a film becomes a hit, not because of its star, again hinting that Vidya’s blockbuster status is a fluke of good timing.
