Vidya Balan’s Dirty Picture has created such a benchmark that Kareena Kapoor is visibly tired with every reporter asking the same set of questions to her, “How is this different from Dirty Picture? How is your role different from what Vidya Balan did?”
Kareena is playing the role of a Bollywood actress Mahie Khanna whose career touched the heights of fame, before going on a decline. There were reports that references to her character have been taken from the lives of Madhubala and Marilyn Monroe. But now with every passing day, people are comparing her character to the one Vidya Balan played as Silk in Dirty Picture.
At a recent press event, Kareena sought to clarify her stand, “There are absolutely no similarities between the two films. Both films deal with stories of two different kinds of stars, who come from two different industries. She asserted that while The Dirty Picture’s Silk is an item girl in the 1980s south Indian film industry, Mahie’s character is of an imaginary character from Bollywood.” At this point of time, it looks like a weak argument but you never know, Bebo may be right
