Naseeruddin made me feel comfortable: Vidya Balan

Actress Vidya Balan, who is essaying a sultry siren in soon-to-be-released 'The Dirty Picture' against actor Naseeruddin Shah, says age difference between the duo did not matter for her while shooting intimate scenes even as she asserted that the movie is not porn.
From being a demure dame in 'Parineeta' to a sly temptress in 'Ishqiya' and now a southern siren in 'The Dirty Picture', actress Vidya Balan has come a long way.
 Milan Luthria's 'The Dirty Picture' chronicles life of the controversial southern actress Vijayalaxmi, popularly known as Silk Smitha who was known for her daring and bold erotica on screen.
The promos of the flick have already become the talk of town. However, the actress is all praise for the veteran actor.
"The age difference did not matter much with him (Naseeruddin Shah). When you face an actor like Naseeruddin, he can make you believe in anything. He is a brilliant actor. And I have worked with Naseer saheb earlier. He is one of the living legends. You feel absolutely comfortable, I was not at all uncomfortable," Vidya told PTI in an interview.
"In such scenes, we made sure few people are there on sets. I knew it was required for the story to go ahead...it was part of the script," she said.
Earlier, Vidya shared screen with Naseeruddin in Vishal Bharadwaj's 'Ishqiya'.
About her experience of working with Naseeruddin, Vidya said, "it was heart warming, especially while shooting 'Ooh La La' song. When we were dancing in the midst of oranges it was hilarious. We were laughing like mad, dancing between pots, posing like old sculptures. We had to roll down a slope. It is not easy, more than (getting) hurt, I couldn't control my laughter."

Vidya Balan to be booked for obscenity

Controversies continue to dog The Dirty Picture with a city court directing police to book actor Vidya Balan for posing for indecent photographs on the film posters and promos.
Nampally criminal courts ordered the Nallakunta police station in the city to book a criminal case against the Bollywood star.
The court passed the orders on a petition filed by an advocate SK Azad.
The judge asked police to book the actor under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code and also under Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, 1986.
Police was also asked to take action against public display of posters and promotional advertisements of the controversial movie.
The petitioner said the posters and hoardings of the film were spoiling the minds of the people and causing harm to the society.
Produced by Balaji Telefilms, starring Vidya, Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor, the film was released all over the country on Friday.
There have been protests by anti-obscenity activists in parts of Hyderabad and other towns in the state during last two days.
The film before its release had landed into trouble when former south Indian actress Silk Smitha's brother V Naga Varaprasad Rao moved the Andhra Pradesh High Court, objecting to the way her late sister was portrayed in the film.
The court on December 1 refused to stop the film's release after the filmmaker denied that it is based on Silk Smitha's life.
