Mumbai: Shilpa Shetty has explored newer lengths of getting intimate on screen. The leggy has gone bolder than any of her stints before in her upcoming Indo-Chinese project `Desire: A Journey of A Woman`.
Shilpa plays the role of an Oddisi dancer in the film and is paired opposite Chinese superstar Xia Yu.
Shilpa had no inhibitions going bold on screen despite being a married woman now.
"I had no qualms in doing these scenes as these sequences are an integral part of the film, and have been aesthetically shot," Shilpa said.
Apparently it looks like one of the most interesting characters she has played in her 17-year-long career. She has left no stone unturned to make herself look convincing as ‘Gautami’ (her character in the film).
A source to a daily said, "In the film, a world famous Chinese painter is madly in love with Shilpa`s character Gautami, but she does not really respond to him. These sequences are a part of the story building up to how far their friendship goes."
The film is being showcased at various film festivals across the globe at the moment and is expected to be released in India later this year.
Explaining her character, Shilpa said, "The film traces Gautami`s journey through a number of years. The love story is beautiful and the passion between the two characters is almost like a painting. I would say that it`s my character Gautami, who is bold, and not the scenes per say."
