Amrita Rao sizzles on the cover of the new issue of Maxim in a simple white minidress and a photoshoot designed to lay to rest her image as the girl next door once and for all.
If that’s not enough, she intends to get a little chiggy wiggy with Shahid Kapur, posing nude for a PETA advert with the message ‘Let Vegetarianism Grow on You. Both have been vegetarians for about ten years.
Amrita is said to be very choosy about the screen roles she accepts. Why is that? “I’m choosy because you have to see to believe what kind of scripts filmmakers come up with – they are hilariously silly!” she says, “I can’t imagine from where they think of such stories; at times like that, you almost feel that Hindi cinema hasn’t moved for decades. Out of so many that I hear, there might be only one or two worth considering. There’s no choice but to be choosy!”
Anyone who still thinks of Amrita only in girl-next-door roles should ask her what type of heroines she would like to play. “I want to play a psychotic killer!” she exclaims, “Out and out action flicks will also be interesting. It would really be nice, if producers made films in which the girl next door was shown to be sexy, hot and intelligent!”
