Shilpa begins work on her Broadway musical

Actress Shilpa Shetty is finalising the nitty-gritty of her Broadway musical which will be along the lines of Moulin Rouge and Andrew Lloyd Weber's Bombay Dreams.

"Shilpa has begun the ground work on the musical. Her role requires lots of dancing and acting, which is something she loves doing anyway," remarked her spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar.

"From the last couple of months, Shilpa's basic aim is to showcase Bollywood and Indian culture in the West," he added. "Even for the musical, her costumes will be designed by popular Indian designer Neeta Lulla and will represent the ethics and culture of India."

Bhagwagar further informed that renowned Indian choreographer Ganesh Hegde would set the steps for the musical, while Shilpa would focus on her performance, leaving the singing to professionals.

Starting with shows in the UK for the first three months, the musical could travel to other parts of the world including America and Australia.

"After Big Brother, Shilpa was constantly under media glare with all her moves being marked. She was looking at expanding her horizons by going to another level. This musical gives her a chance to do something she's always wanted to do," added Bhagwagar.

Meanwhile, within less than a month of its launch in UK, Shilpa Shetty's signature perfume is reported to have emerged a bestseller, becoming the No.1 in the fragrance charts.

The scent is said to have beaten off stiff competition from signature perfumes of Kylie Minogue, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani and Paris Hilton; proving itself to be a cut above the rest in the sea of celebrity fragrances in the UK.
