Sherlyn's outrageous bikini
Audioe & Video on T-Series
available on all music shops.
As the 'outrageous' singer and actress
Sherlyn Chopra prepares to embark upon her first
promotional tour for her new album 'Dard-e-Sherlyn',
her show organisers are panicking.
Starting this Saturday, September 6, the
newbie will begin her tour spanning seven prominent cities
of India namely Delhi, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Pune, Vizag,
Hyderabad and Mumbai.
But her organisers are losing sleep over
the bold and flamboyant girl wearing her trademark diamond-encrusted
bikini top and golden hot pants that she has famously worn
in the new superhit video of her remix album.
They have been considering stringent
security measures at all her promotional events across the
country. Apart from expecting trouble from unruly crowds due
to the skimpy attire, the organisers also feel it is very
risky for her to wear the bikini top as it is actually
studded with a couple of real diamonds on the sides of the
Special care was taken for this
diamond-studded top when the video was shot at Filmistan
Studio in Mumbai. In fact, Sherlyn had employed an extra
lady assistant just to keep an eye on the top whenever she
left it in her vanity van in between the shots.
"But while travelling from city to city,
obviously the risk will dramatically increase. So it comes
as no surprise, that the organisers are worried about
Sherlyn's protection," says her publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
"It's a delicate-cum-volatile situation with extreme
potential to spark off untoward incidents. Most of the
organisers feel the risk is too big. It will require tremendous
care and vigilance by the security personnel – for Sherlyn
as well as for the diamond top," he adds.
"To be on the safe side, Sherlyn will
perform with around six to eight bouncers in the stage's
vicinity, and four other plain-clothes security men, who
will intermingle with the audience, to subtly tackle any
troublemakers in the crowds," informs Bhagwagar.
After the runaway success of her first
album 'Outrageous' on T-Series, Sherlyn
emerged a diva, out to make men go weak in their knees. The
second album 'Dard-e-Sherlyn' is her tribute to the original
dreamgirl Hema Malini and takes off from her 1976 hit
song "Mujhe dard rehta hai, dil mein dard rehta hai…"
from the film 'Dus Numbri' co-starring Manoj Kumar.
But the "Dard-e-Sherlyn" video has already attracted
19 cuts from the Censor Board and also invited the
ire of Hema Malini.
The yesteryear's actress was obviously
furious and upset when in a recent interview she spoke about
Sherlyn with stinging sarcasm, stating, "I don't even know
why she's linking me with a hot-hot thing. She's trying to
change her image maybe with my name. If she's doing this,
poor thing, I wish her success, for all those who see nudity
will be happy. But my name is Hema Malini and that won't
change for anything."
It can also be recalled that after being
in discussion for appearing on the reality show 'Bigg
Boss', this firebrand bikini babe was shown the door as
she had suggested that the makers install cameras even in
bathrooms of the House, so that she could flaunt her vast
collection of colourful bikinis and inner wear while
bathing. She was keen to generate loads of teenage interest
in the show from both sexes, but the makers had found her
demand too outrageous and she was out.
Now she plans to fully utilise the next
few weeks to aggressively promote her album 'Dard-e-Sherlyn'
through events and endorsements.
