Actor-director R Parthiepan is gearing up to play a key role in the Kannada remake of Hindi hit 'The Dirty Picture'. Titled 'The Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga', the movie will be directed by popular Sandalwood filmmaker Trishul.
It is said that Parthiepan will play Naseeruddin Shah's character, while the title role will be played by Veena Malik. The 'Vithagan' maker is expected to camp in Bangalore to complete his portions in the movie.
Confirming the development, Trishul says, "We have approached Parthiepan for the role and he has given his nod. We will be officially signing him for the project soon. We are happy to have him on the board."
Back home in Kollywood, Parthiepan is getting ready to start 'Meendum Pudhiya Padhai', a sequel to his yesteryear hit 'Pudhiya Padhai'. Also, he is expected to star in a television serial to be made by Gautham Vasudev Menon.
