Move over, Malaika… here comes ‘Imported Kamariya’
Mumbai: English girl Scarlet Mellish Wilson is the latest item girl to hit Bollywood with Dibakar Bannerjee’s ‘Shanghai’ and the director says she is one of the best dancers in the Bollywood form.
"Someone recommended Scarlet for our item song. I couldn`t believe how well she danced! Scarlet is by far one of the best dancers in the Bollywood form I`ve seen. Usually when foreigners do Bollywood dancing, there`s a certain amount of stiffness in their movements. Not Scarlet. She takes to the rhythms as though she was born to the desi beat," said Bannerjee.
Vishal-Shekhar were assigned the task to compose the song.
"They’ve come up with this rocking number ‘Imported Kamariya,’ which we`ll be shooting with Scarlet shortly. Trust me, she will take Bollywood by storm," Banerjee said.
Meanwhile Scarlet is being kept under wraps, far away from the prying eyes of item-fixated producers in Bollywoood. It seems ‘Imported Kamariya’ will be her launch-pad in the Hindi cinema.
