Mumbai, Sep 22 (PTI) Filmmaker Milan Luthria on Friday said that many in the film industry questioned his decision to make Vidya Balan-starrer “The Dirty Picture” at a time when it was more common to feature male actors in leading roles.

At the trailer launch press conference of his OTT debut series “Sultan of Delhi”, the director recalled going against the tide with the film, a story inspired by the life of South actor Silk Smitha.

Luthria's new show is based on Arnab Ray's book "Sultan of Delhi: Ascension" and revolves around Arjun Bhatia (Tahir Raj Bhasin), who works with Delhi’s biggest illegal arms dealer, Jagan Seth (Vinay Pathak).
