To recreate the magic of the 1980s with a Mumbai-style Bollywood experience, Balaji’s Dirty Picture’s theatrical trailer will be unveiled at a single screen theatre, Gaiety, on August 30. The bold movie featuring Vidya Balan as a starlet on the lines of the late Silk Smitha is set in the South Indian film industry and its first look will open at one of the oldest single screen theatre chains in Mumbai.
Co-starring Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor as Vidya’s three romantic interests, the film is directed by Milan Luthria. The reason the Gaiety was chosen for the trailer launch is because of the immense popularity the cinema enjoyed back in the ’80s. It portrays the rise of a struggler to the peaks of stardom and then her fall from grace.
