Dirty Picture led to discovery of different side of me: Vidya

The sensuous performance in songs `Ooh La La', `Naak Mukka' from her last release, 'Dirty Picture', has helped Vidya Balan get her first item-song.

Vidya will be seen doing a lavani number in Sharman Joshi starrer yet-to-be-released film, `Ferrari Ki Sawaari'. Ask her if this is the fall-out of `Dirty Picture', and Vidya says: "May be they saw different side of me (in `Dirty Picture'). No item songs came my way before....I don't think anyone could have believed, even I did not believe that I could be so sexual.

"I am not a dancer, I began to enjoy dancing more, but I go more with the feeling of the movement," she said. After Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Shilpa Shetty, Vidya is the latest to join the bandwagon of actresses doing item songs.

"I have finished shooting for the song in `Ferrari.... It is a Lavani, a koli song, I can't reveal too much about it," she said.

The Commonwealth mission's visit here coincided with the MDP's rally. Among other things, the party is demanding "cleaning up" of judiciary. Besides Nasheed, MDP MP Maria Ahmed Didi addressed the gathering and asked the Hassan government to set a date for snap polls. Mayor of Male City Council Maizan Ali Manik too made the same demand.

Significantly, Maldivian Police Services issued a statement, saying nobody should disturb the MDP gathering. They said they had been informed that the rally would be peaceful.
Meanwhile, David Hardingham, the chief of UK-based 'Friends of Maldives', has asked people to boycott the resorts owned by Mohammed Waheeduddin, a businessman nominated as Vice President by Hassan, and those belonging to Gasim Ibrahim.
Nasheed and his followers claim that Ibrahim had financed the opposition during Nasheed's presidency to overthrow him. Already, the Maldives Association of Tourism Industry has said that over 500 bookings for Maldives by tourists have been cancelled, leading to the loss of over USD 100 million.
