Bollywood’s item girl Rakhi Sawant is all set to star in the Bengali remake of The Dirty Picture and she says she will outperform National Award winner Vidya Balan.
Rakhi will play a sex siren in the untitled film to be directed by Bengali actress-turned-politician Shatabdi Roy and she says her film will set more tongues wagging than the original.
“The film is based on the life of an item girl and it is only befitting that I take on the role as I am the original item girl of Bollywood. I admire Vidya a lot. I think she is a great actress and she did a great job in the film. But now it is my turn and I will do a better ooh lala than her. After this film I am hoping that everyone will chant only my name,” Rakhi said.
Besides numerous item songs and TV shows, Bollywood’s item girl Rakhi Sawant has also done small parts in films like Main Hoon Na, Mumbai Xpress, Dil Bole Hadippa and she says she is excited about her first film as a full fledged actress.
“I have only done item songs and short roles in films. This will be the first time that I will be doing a full fledged film with dialogues, song and dance,”
