‘The Dirty Picture’ casts spell at the box office

In just two days of being released, Vidya Balan starrer ‘The Dirty Picture’ has successfully managed to draw huge crowds into the theaters and has set the cash registers ringing across the nation.

Although the latest release is a woman-centric film but still it is garnering overwhelming response at the box office and people are flocking in large numbers to watch the flick. Ekta Kapoor’s biopic on sex siren Silk Smitha has proved to be an endearing affair and is receiving praises from high quarters.

A trade analyst says, “There is a usual perception that woman-oriented films don’t work in Bollywood but The Dirty Picture has changed it. The potent combination of sex and story is working to its merit”.

Ekta and the director of the movie Milan Luthria have succeeded in extracting wonderful performances from one and all. Where Vidya was at ease portraying a bold and sensuous character on the screen, Emraan Hashmi handled his part wonderfully. Naseeruddin Shah and Tusshar Kapoor have also enacted their respective characters very endearingly.

The reports also reveal that the movie’s run is expected to grow in the coming days.

Bol Bachchan in a title row

Filmmaker Rohit Shetty and Arif Khan (who is famous as the duplicate of Anil Kapoor) are vying to get hold of the title ‘Bol Bachchan’.

The reports have it that both are making a movie with the same name and have even filed a complaint against each other with Association of Motion Pictures and TV Programme Producers (AMPTPP).

A tabloid informs that Arif Khan had planned his directorial debut years back and had already registered the said title with AMPTPP in 2007. In fact, Khan, who is also the producer of the project, has already started shooting for the same.

“I am making a film called Bol Bachchan with myself and Amitabh Bachchan’s duplicate in the lead roles. It is based on farmer suicides. I have already started shooting for it,” said Arif.

He even expressed his displeasure when he learnt that AMPTPP had given the title to Ashtavinayak for Rohit Shetty’s Ajay Devgn-Abhishek Bachchan starrer. “When I wanted to renew the title for the fourth year, AMPTPP refused. When I have begun shooting, how can they give the title to Ashtavinayak?”

However, Ratan Jain AMPTPP President explained that the title has not been given to Ashtavinayak. It is with the association itself. He said, “Arif Khan’s claims are wrong.
The title was with him for three years. We have a mandate that if the person does not start shooting the particular film then we can give the title to the next party. If he has begun shooting then he has to produce evidence.

We had a meeting with him and told him so. We are waiting for his evidence. Ashtavinayak is the first party in waiting. If he can’t provide the evidence then the title can be given to Ashtavinayak.”
