White Skin in Desi Flicks

It had to happen. After all how long could white actresses resist bollywood temptation? Bollywood has always loved showing some white skin off wherever possible. Now beauties from every imaginable country are rushing towards bollywood movies to steam up the screens in 2009.

Sajid Nadiadwala is roping in quite a few famous stars for his movies ‘Kambakht Ishq’. Gov. Arnold Shwazenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh and Bond Girl Denise Richards in important roles. The film also stars Akshay(Khiladi) Kumar and Bebo (Kareena Kapoor). The film is slated for May release.

Rakesh Roshan’s next movie ‘Kites’ will see screen sizzle with Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori in an extremely bold and sensuous Latino girl. She plays the love interest of Hrithik Roshan. The film also stars Kangana Ranaut and is due for release in June.

Former Miss Sri Lanka Jacqueline Fernandez plays the role of Jasmine in Sujoy Ghosh’s fantasy movie, ‘Aladdin’. Riteish Deshmukh Plays ‘Aladdin’ and Amitabh Bachchan becomes ‘Genie’. The movie was to release on Christmas last year, but has been postponed indefinitely.

Brazilian model Bruna Abdullah will storm Bollywood and is being comforted by Salman Khan. Although Bruna has not bagged any movie yet, Salman has been aggressively promoting her.

Salman is also launching Lisa Lazarus, who has some striking resemblance with Katrina Kaif, in his period film ‘Veer’. Loosely based on ‘Gladiator’, Salman wrote the film’s story. Miss UK plays the leading lady. The film will be ready for a mid –2009 release.

French actress Luchiya Cats will be seen romancing Govinda in ‘Excuse Me, Please’. A Hindi remake of the Hollywood comedy ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’, Govinda plays a nerdy 40 year-old NRI who stays a virgin until his friends help him get some sex. Jag Mundhra’s sex comedy releases in summer this year.

Japanese beauty Chigusa Takaku will make her bollywood debut with Aparna Sen’s film ‘The Japanese Wife’. Based on Kunal Basu’s short story in which Rahul Bose plays a character involved with two women, the other woman being Raima Sen.

In the past too foreign actors have had some substantial roles. Ali Larter cast opposite Salman Khan in Marigold; Shannon Esra opposite Govinda in Salaam-e-Ishq; Alice Patten opposite Aamir Khan in Rang De Basanti; and Rachel Shelly opposite Aamir Khan in Lagaan. The foreign actors are becoming a permanent feature in Bollywood, for their appeal, of their boldness at least.
