Sexy singer Tata Young has lived the kind of erotic fantasies other women can only dream of - coo in a cage with Uday Chopra, take a mud bath with John Abraham and finally share the bathtub with Abhishek Bachchan.
Thailand's youngest pop sensation certainly believes in creating 'Dhoom'. In India to shoot a music video for Aditya Chopra's new film, Young is thrilled to bits about her debut in tinseltown.
"Amitabh Bachchan always came to mind when I thought of sexy filmstars. But after working with Abhishek, I realise that the son is no less hot than the father," she gushes.
Born Amita Marie Young, Tata - the only daughter of an American father and Thai mother - is already a music veteran of nine years standing. Despite being only 23, she has sold more than 12 million albums to date, establishing herself as one of the most promising artistes on the international scene.
"Yash Chopra's son Aditya watched my video on MTv and was impressed. He got in touch with details of the film he was planning to make and I saw it as an excellent opportunity to launch my career in Bollywood," she says.
The 'Dhoom' video is conceptualised as a woman's fantasy and will show Tata Young imagining herself in various poses with the three male stars of the film.
While the more faint-hearted among Indian audiences are likely to be shocked by the lyrics of Tata's song 'Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy', she thinks director Arjun Sablok has made the right choice. According to her: "You'll find me sizzling in 'Dhoom'. I think it's a good idea to have an English song in a Hindi movie and I like the way it has been shot. I have always found Indian actors very sexy and to be honest, I would someday love to do a film with a Bollywood hunk."
Tata, who has been busy touring the region since the release of her first English album 'I Believe', admits her connection with India dates back to the time she was born. "I am based in Thailand but my parents used to live in India. During their stay in this country, they used to buy a number of Tata products. They simply fell in love with the name and decided to call me 'Tata Young'!"
Sablok is sure that the Thai beauty will set the small screen on fire. According to him: "I'm directing an independent video based on the film's theme of rugged adventure. For the first time, we'll have a music video that supports a film without borrowing visuals from it."
"Abhishek, John and Uday are so good at it, I wonder why we don't do this more often!" he exclaims.
