Actor Shilpa Shetty has teamed up with Hollywood director Andy Morahan for distant relative, singer Romy Shay’s music video of Bollywood Ki Star...
“Romy (Shay) has signed up with Rishi Rich productions. He is a really talented singer. He made me hear the song and said, ‘I can’t think of anyone else, but you (to do the song),’” says Shilpa with a smile.
Interestingly, Bollywood Ki Star... is her first video for a private album. “He got a great director on board. Andy Morahan has directed Michael Jackson and George Michael previously,” says the actor, who shot the video in London.
Shilpa plays herself in the video and dons three looks. “I have been styled by Dolce & Gabbana. I enjoyed working on it,” says Shilpa, adding that the video is about a guy who is thinking about his favourite Bollywood star.
Director Morahan, has worked on Guns N’ Roses videos like Don’t Cry..., November Rain... and Estranged... and on the documentary, George Michael: Live in London besides a TV movie on Jackson Live in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour.
‘I’m not going to act in films’
Although Shilpa has no new film in hand except the Indo-Chinese production, The Desire, she insists “there’s no question of quitting” films. “Since I am working on my production house, I am still going to be a part of the movie business. Yes, I am not going to act in films. But the next thing I heard that I am retiring from films. So, I was like, ‘when did that happen.’ I just stated that I have taken a break for at least two years,” says Shilpa with a smile, who is gearing up to launch production house. “It will be a new announcement. I will only talk about it when I am ready with the cast and crew. We should be starting around December.”
