Move over, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif. Kylie Minogue, who recently arrived Bollywood, is here to stay.
Contrary to the general belief, Kylie isn't here to only shake a leg to her own song for debutant director Anthony D'Souza's Blue. She has a full-fledged role in the film.
Says the director, "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."
Apparently the film's other two svelte leading ladies have been peering anxiously over their dainty shoulders ever since they heard Kylie's isn't just a flash-on-flash-off song-and-dance routine.
Laughs Anthony, "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."
