Vidya Balan is overwhelmed by the kind of response she has received for The Dirty Picture, and is glad that even her parents did not find anything vulgar or cheap in her portrayal of a sex symbol.
"I am feeling great. I am thankful to god as the film has got such a good opening. I got to know it has got 100% occupancy in single screen cinemas and 80-90% in multiplexes. I have just seen the reaction of people inside the theatre and I didn't even know what to say. There have been certain reviews which are very positive and encouraging," Vidya said after watching the film in a theatre here.
Vidya is particularly happy with her parents' reaction.
"My dad and mom said this film has nothing vulgar or cheap. They said they are proud of me as I have brought so much grace and dignity. I think whatever compliments I will get after this will be like bonus. That's the best compliment," she said.
The film has been directed by Milan Luthria and produced by Balaji Productions. It also features Naseeruddin Shah, Emran Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor.
