Ekta Kapoor is known to be stringent about her rules, and when the boss says no mobile on the sets, she means it.
Ekta’s latest diktat is that no mobile phones shall be used on the sets of her upcoming film, The Dirty Picture. Ekta and director Milan Luthria have issued orders that the entire unit, including actors’ staff and visitors, will be required to deposit their phones with the production before coming on the set.
With Vidya Balan’s sexiest and most sensuous act to date, the makers are keen to keep the look of the film guarded and do not want any images or MMS clips leaking out. Based on the life of the one-time south Indian seductress Silk Smitha, the film is supposed to have a retro look with a blend of glitzy & classy modern. Ekta has high expectations from the film, “To put it succinctly, the look is very Moulin Rouge meets Himmatwala. TDP will be a good-looking, humorous and soulful romantic drama, with music at its core.”
Shooting for the film is expected to start today (30th May, 2011). The film will be shot in Mumbai and Hyderabad, and stars Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor as well. Vishal-Shekhar will compose the music for the film.
