Vidya said at the event, "I was very excited at the prospect of getting to play Silk. But I have to tell you that the first time Milan Luthria came to me mujhe laga ki, 'Aap ghalat darwaaze pe toh nahi aagaye (Are you sure about it)?' Because I woudn't believe that someone would actually offer me this role. There was this burning desire to do things that people couldn't imagine I could do but I knew I could do. I was thrilled to bits when the film came to me. I said yes instinctively."

"There were some people who told me, 'Are you sure? It's going to ruin your career. It may actually spell the end of your career because you know you have been Miss Goody two shoes. I said, 'Miss Goody two shoes ka kya matlab hai (what does that mean)? I have hardly done 5-6 films. It's not like 30 years into films and then I'm trying something different.' This is why I'm an actor," she added.

The Dirty Picture is a biographical musical drama film inspired by the life of Silk Smitha. The film was directed by Milan Luthria and it released worldwide in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. 

Apart from Vidya, Emraan Hashmi, Naseeruddin Shah and Tusshar Kapoor starred in the film. Vidya's performance received critical acclaim and accolades.

Vidya was recently seen in Neeyat, which released earlier this year. The mystery film was directed by Anu Menon and produced by Vikram Malhotra under Abundantia Entertainment alongside Amazon Studios.
