Vidya is doing Milan Luthria’s film Dirty Picture with Emraan Hashmi. Now, that’s what I call WEIRD! The movie’s being produced by Ekta Kapoor (she loves scandals) and is about the extremely controversial life of the South Indian actress and sex siren, Silk Smitha. Emraan plays a filmmaker who is smitten by Vidya’s character. Vidya and Emraan have some intimate scenes in the movie which they are kind of awkward about at the moment. The makers are really hoping that they become more comfortable with the scenes after a few months of shooting together. I don’t think Emraan’s awkwardness is the issue here (Hello, isn’t he called the serial kisser or something?) Well, it could be the new success formula, this “odd pair” thing, but the idea of some of these unusual Bollywood celebs together does freak you out at first! So, who’s your creepiest unusual Bollywood Pair, MissMalini readers?
Psst! The idea of unusual pairs is totally becoming one of the hottest trends in Bollywood.
First there was Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma in Wake Up Sid! (cuteness personified.)
Then there was Priyanka Chopra with Nasseruddin Shah and his son Vivaan both playing her love-interests in Saat Khoon Maaf (Yikes!)
And this trend of seemingly odd couples is something Vidya Balan particularly seems to enjoy. So, if you thought that her chemistry with John Abraham in Salaam-e-Ishq was weird and that she and Naseruddin Shah looked rather odd in Ishqiya, there’s more where that came from!
