Shockers come in many guises the latest is Sherlyn Chopra signing Yash Raj's next as Shahid Kapoor's leading lady! A Yash Raj spokesperson confirms, "Yes, Sherlyn has been signed by Yash Raj to star in a film by Anurag Singh."
The film is a love triangle involving Rani Mukherjee, Shahid Kapoor and Sherlyn Chopra. Sherlyn will be seen in her seductive best and will have a lot of steamy scenes with Shahid. The source adds, "Though Adi met Sherlyn, it was Yash Chopra's suggestion.
Sherlyn has been in the good books of Yash Chopra, who also launched her album Outrageous. Yash Raj has been wanting to get in touch with her for some time but Sherlyn had her number changed so they finally got it from Vinod Pandey (who directed her in Red Swastika)."
Sherlyn isn't jumping from rooftops at being signed by the most powerful production house in B-Town, "I won't be modest and mouth the usual platitudes of saying how excited and happy I am. For me, this is just the beginning. Yes, I am a part of Anurag's film but I still need to work much harder to get to the place where I really want to be right at the top. I have it in me to be a kick-ass Bollywood babe and I will do it."
On working with Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee, Sherlyn says, "I just want to do this role to the best of my abilities and want them to start wondering how I can act with so much of finesse and ease. The director, Anurag Singh has told that he will be pitching me against them and that I have to be on par with their performances."
About her outrageous quotes, Sherlyn says, "When the time is right I will talk about the film and my acting too. Why should I be tired about talking about my sexuality? Maybe the day I cross 50 years I will stop. I am a 20-something and I have all the right to scream! I don't deny that I scream to get attention. It's not a crime to promote my film or myself."
About her close association with Yash Chopra, Sherlyn says, "When Vinod Pandey had held a screening for Red Swastika for Yash uncle at YRF preview theatre, Yash uncle had said just one thing after the screening, 'yeh ladki bahut aage jayegi.' I will never forget his words." Ask her if her family is now proud of her achievement and she laughs, "Mom will say that it should've happened long time back. She is tired of me talking about my butt or sexuality or bikinis."
