With size zero ruling the Bollywood, Vidhya Balan broke all the stereotypes, successfully carried out the biopic of Silk Smitha. Talking about the movie, “On December 2, 7 years ago, The Dirty Picture released and changed my life forever. But everytime someone asks me how I did it, I don’t know what to say. Perhaps because Milan made it so easy for me… He hand held me throughout and all I wanted was to do justice to Silk and live up to the faith that had been placed in me by Ekta Kapoor (producer) and Milan,” the 39-year-old actress wrote.

“Milan, however, tells me, his big concern was that he should not let me down. Of course, he did not and not just that, he lifted me so high that I felt free as a bird… For that and for believing in me, thank you, my dearest Ekta, for Hum Paanch, maybe there would have been no The Dirty Picture for me without Hum Paanch,” she added.
