Vidya Balan's 'The Dirty Picture' Character To Be A Case Study For Academicians

Actress Vidya Balan, who had played the buxom sex siren Silk in Balaji flick The Dirty Picture, was appreciated by one and all for her performance and now, it seems Balan has another feather to add to her cap.

Sources claim that Balan's character in the film has become a case study for lecturers at the prestigious Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS), Mumbai. Needless to say, Balan is quite elated about this development and was quoted saying that The Dirty Picture will always be among the films that she is extremely proud of. She further added that she found it liberating to play Silk, a woman who was unapologetic about her sexuality and the choices that she makes.

Vidya Balan, who recently tied the knot with UTV head honcho Siddharth Roy Kapur,  will be next seen opposite Emraan Hashmi in Ghanchakkar and also in the sequel to Kahaani.
