Australian pop star Kylie Minogue landed in India yesterday to star in Bollywood movie ‘Blue‘. She will be performing a music video and will also be starring in the much-talked about movie.
“At a particular juncture in the story we needed a woman with a particular personality and appearance who could act sing and dance. Kylie fitted the bill. She isn’t here to do an item song and go back. Kylie plays a pivotal part. She contributes considerably to taking the story forward. Over a period of eight days I’m shooting all of Kylie’s scenes.”
Earlier, people had thought that she will only be singing a song for the movie, but now even the cast is surprised by the revelation that she will also be acting… and that too, in an important role.
Minogue went out for a lunch with superstar Akshay Kumar and his wife Twinkle Khanna yesterday at their residence and was looking hot in an all-blue dress. She has reportedly already recorded a song with Oscar winner A R Rahman, which will be releasing in August this year.
The movie, Blue, said to be the most expensive movie being made in Bollywood, costing about Rs.130 crores after completion. It will be starring Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif. It has a lot of underwater sequences and is the first Bollywood movie to be based on the subject.
“Well I’m lucky to have three such lovely ladies in my film. I hope the audiences in the backwaters who may not know Kylie come to see my film for Lara and Katrina while the international audiences go wild over all the three ladies,” says director Anthony D’Souza.
Kylie is expected to stay for a week in Mumbai.
