Actress Vidya Balan seems to be dancing to a new tune these days - that of salsa. Apparently, the star has been practising the sexy dance form and is even keen to learn it professionally. As per Bollywood buzz she is taking lessons on the sensuous Latin American dance form for her upcoming film ‘Dirty Picture’, which is based on the life of Silk Smitha.
According to a source, “Vidya barely has time to rest as she is shooting back-to-back at the moment, but we do know that she’s very keen on perfecting her salsa moves and has taken up the dance with a lot of gusto.”
Vidya is known to have mastered several complicated salsa moves already.
“She has a natural flair for the dance. Though she equally enjoys the Indian dance forms, salsa is something she is very keen on perfecting,” insists the source.
The dance moves might just help her fine-tune the body language as the South sex siren as she feels that Salsa will help her get Silk Smitha’s languid body language for the role. A source close to the director Milan Luthria reveals, “Milan has asked Vidya to study Burlesque for her role as Silk Smitha. He’s also asking her to watch films of Ingrid Bergman as the emphasis is on emulating women with strong and overtly sexual body language.”
“I wanted Vidya to know that what she’s doing is not crass or crude but can be shown aesthetically in a sensual manner with a touch of class. What her character does, is not cheap. I wanted to show her that I haven’t taken up a career in soft porn,” Milan jokes.
The Ekta Kapoor-produced film also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor.
