MUMBAI: Another Indian-origin porn star is set to follow Indo-Canadian Sunny Leone into Bollywood.
The new entrant is Shanti Dyanamite from Britain.
This 21-year-old Playboy queen, who was born to a Punjabi mother from Jalandhar and a Greek father, will soon be seen as an item girl in a Bollywood film Chal Doctor Doctor Khelein by Saurabh Malik.
A comedy thriller, Chal Doctor Doctor Khelein will have real-life doctors roles in the film.
Shanti, who made her modeling debut with the topless show Hotel Voyeur in Britain and who now runs adult shows and own production company, says she grew up on Bollywood films and wants to get a toehold in the Mumbai film industry.
In a statement, Shanti Dynamite says, “While growing up in Indian culture, I fell in love with the world of Bollywood. My all-time favourite stars are Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, Sridevi, Salman Khan, and Shahrukh Khan and now I am going to be part of the great industry, I feel blessed.’’
Shanti, who grew up with her Punjabi mother after her parents divorced when she was very young, describes herself in her twitter account as the “first Punjabi to go topless on UK babeshows…an angel with a devil’s mind.’’
Shanti says Bollywood films are “staple diet of entertainment’’ in the UK, adding that getting roles in these films is “a matter of great prestige’’ for anyone.
So it is now between two Punjabans – Sunny versus Shanti – in Bollywood.
