After beginning her first promotional tour for her new album 'Dard-e-Sherlyn' and charming fans at Kolkata and Hyderabad, the 'outrageous' singer and actress Sherlyn Chopra made an appearance at Club Voodoo in Chandigarh this week.
But what surprised everyone is that Sherlyn who had a tight security of eight bouncers besides the stage and four civil-dress security men in the audience in Kolkata as well as Hyderabad, refused any in Chandigarh.
"Sherlyn told me she refused security as she felt safe in the company of robust Sardars whom she considers very gentlemanly people," informed her publicist Dale Bhagwagar. "She also admires Sardars as she believes they have the best physiques in our country," he added.
It can be recalled that Sherlyn's show organisers had panicked earlier about the bold and flamboyant girl wearing her bikini top along with her golden hot pants that she has famously worn in the new superhit video of her remix album. Apart from expecting trouble from unruly crowds due to the skimpy attire, the organisers had felt it was very risky for her to wear the bikini top as it is actually studded with a couple of real diamonds on the sides.
When asked about Sherlyn's fixation with bikinis, Bhagwagar retorted, "If Sherlyn had her way, she would even die wearing a bikini"!
Following Calcutta, Hyderabad and Chandigarh, Sherlyn will continue her tour with appearances at Mumbai, Delhi, Pune and Vizag.
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. But the 'Dard-e-Sherlyn' video has already attracted 19 cuts from the Censor Board and also invited the ire of Hema Malini. The new remix video is set to hit our TV screens next week.
The firebrand is heavily promoting her two remixes of the 'Dard-e-Sherlyn' title track by DJs Akbar Sami and Pramz, while donning her controversial trademark diamond-studded bikini top for all her appearances.
