Kick-starting her first promotional tour for her new album 'Dard-e-Sherlyn', the 'outrageous' singer and actress Sherlyn Chopra made an appearance to a packed audience this week at Club Tantra discotheque at the esteemed Park Hotel in Kolkata. Sending the audiences in what her organisers termed as an "orgasmic frenzy", the firebrand grooved two remixes of the "Dard-e-Sherlyn" title track by DJs Akbar Sami and Pramz with aplomb.
But the highlight of her appearance remained her controversial trademark diamond-studded bikini top. It can be recalled that her show organisers had panicked last week about the bold and flamboyant girl wearing this 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. For the sake of safety, Sherlyn was provided eight bouncers besides the stage and four civil dress security men in the audience.
"Luckily, the stringent security measures paid off and there was no untoward incident. The crowds cheered and danced with her while Sherlyn interacted with them, even asking them some naughty questions in between her songs. After the show, Sherlyn told me, she wickedly enjoyed to her heart's content," informed the actress's publicist Dale Bhagwagar. With the first leg of the tour emerging a success, the organisers are hopeful that the rest of it, spanning five other prominent cities of Chandigarh, Pune, Vizag, Hyderabad and Mumbai, moves as smoothly.
For the record, 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.
