Silk Smitha's life was the inspiration for The Dirty Picture which was not only a huge hit at the box-office but also earned a National Award and numerous other accolades for Vidya Balan. Now a movie is being made about Silk in Malayalam too and Sana Khan is playing the lead role.
She deems it her good luck to be playing a role mirroring Silk Smitha's life. She is putting a lot of effort for this role and expects it to bring her good name and fame. The Silambattam actress also has few Tamil and Malayalam films in hand, other than this.
