The upcoming Malayalam film Climax is to be dubbed into Tamil with the title of Oru Nadigaiyin Dairy. A Malayalam film getting dubbed into Tamil isn’t an unusual thing but Oru Nadigaiyin Dairy might turn out to be very special for Tamil audiences as it has traced the rise and demise of ‘Silk’ Smitha, Kollywood’s eternal ‘item girl’.
Sana Khan plays the lead role Smitha in the film. The film, directed by Anil with inputs from Antony who had introduced Smithat in Malayalam films and remained close to her, is likely to reveal more secrets about the late actress which haven’t been told on celluloid as on date.
Bollywood’s Vidya Balan won the national award last year for portraying Smitha in The Dirty Picture. Pakistani actress Veena Malik is playing Smitha in an upcoming Kannada film titled The Dirty Picture. Ekta Kapoor, producer of the Vidya-starrer, has filed a case with the Court that another film with the same title as her film shouldn’t be releasing. The Court has since imposed a ban on the release of the Kannada film.
Sana’ film is unlikely to face such hurdles as it has a different title in Oru Nadigaiyin Dairy. The characters have been named in such a manner as to reflect the reality. Minor changes such as naming the character of Krishnan as Kishan and Sundar as Chander have been made so as not to court any sort of trouble in future.
Looks like Sana has a winner on hands!
