Sensuous Sherlyn Chopra of Raqeeb and Red Swastika was recently asked by Yashraj to put on a few pounds for her new movie which also co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukerji. When asked to explain this unusual advice, a Yashraj spokesman said “Sherlyn plays a small but important role of a siren in the film. She has to look voluptuous and well-rounded at all the right places in her body. At present Sherlyn is next to Kareena Kapoor in figure, size-zero, so the banner has asked her to put on some weight.”
Sherlyn has no doubt about her value to the industry, “My USP,” she says, “Is my effortless sexuality. All it takes is just one look. My photos are so fabulous that a curator would put them in a museum.” Well, we can’t argue with that.
Sherlyn’s career is stretching out in other directions other than Bollywood. She is currently working on her second album, Dard-e-Sherlyn, which includes a tribute to Hema Malini – and it is likely she will appear in Big Boss 2, based on the hit series Celebrity Big Brother. She is also actively campaigning on behalf of PETA, the animal rights organization.
