    "I never thought that people will be so ga ga over the character. People have found a cotton sari and a quarter second back shot so sexy - I am amazed. Had it not come after 'The Dirty Picture', people would have said I looked fat. Vidya Balan has made voluptuous look sexy and I really need to thank her," Reema told IANS.
