After beginning her first promotional tour for her new album Dard-e-Sherlyn and charming fans at Kolkata, the outrageous singer and actress Sherlyn Chopra enthralled her fans with another dazzling appearance at Dublin, the Irish Pub at the ITC Kakatiya Sheraton in Hyderabad this week.
The firebrand, who hails from this city and has even won the Miss Andhra Pradesh beauty pageant in her college days, heavily promoted 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.
It can be recalled that her show organizers 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 super hit video of her remix album. Apart from expecting trouble from unruly crowds due to the skimpy attire, the organizers 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 in Kolkata,” informed her publicist Dale Bhagwagar. “But Hyderabad is her own city and she was much more bindaas while interacting with crowds here,” he added.
When asked about Sherlyn’s fixation with bikinis, Bhagwagar retorted, “If Sherlyn had her way, she would even die wearing a bikini!”
Following Hyderabad, Sherlyn will continue her tour with appearances at Chandigarh, Mumbai, Pune and Vizag.
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 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.
