Milan Luthria’s Dirty Picture has a big competition from Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine as both the films have similar settings. Milan has begun shooting for his film today while Madhur will start work on Heroine from June 7.
It can be recalled that Madhur unveiled the first look of Heroine at Cannes this year. It is believed that the National Award winning director is aware of this competition and thus plans to wrap up his ambitious project in 45 days targeting a September release. On the other hand, Balaji is yet to disclose the release date of their film on Silk Smitha.
The matter of concern for the makers is that both the films offer same voyeuristic insights into the relaxed morality that often accompanies fame in the showbiz world. And both the films were announced at relatively the same time.
Aishwarya will be playing the main protagonist in Heroine while Vidya’s character is based on South siren Silk Smitha. Both the actresses are preparing for their respective roles.
Now the race between Vidya and Ash is more serious and whoever will have the first release will benefit too. Needless to say both the talented actresses will give their best. We’ll surely see the hotties clash for the Best Actress awards too. TOI
