Dusky model, compere, anchor, choreographer turned actor and karate champion Sandhya Shetty, is all set to add the oomph factor in an item number for BVM Films Pvt. Ltd.’s `Meinu Ek Ladki Chahiye’ directed by Abhishek Bindal, Production Head – Ranjit Shah and boasting an ensemble star cast of Raghuvir Yadav, Zakir Hussain, Yatin Karyekar, Puru Chibber, Reecha Sinha, Jyoti Gauba, Rashee and Kashmira Kulkarni.
The song sung by Mamta Sharma and choreographed by Satish is currently being canned in Mumbai. Written by Shekhar Kochgaven, the film’s cinematographer is KV Ramanna, Uday Prakash Singh as Production Designer and Ranjit Shah as the Executive Producer. The floors of Future Studios resounded to the beats of this high octane number as Sandhya Shetty’s curvaceous and tantalizing moves set the temperature soaring.
A black belt 1st Dan and winner of several gold medals in Kumite (an art form of karate made famous by Jean Claude Van Damme in yesteryear’s cult classic Bloodsport), Sandhya Shetty, a Femina Miss India 2000 Finalist and 1st Runner Up in Vatika Ford Supermodel 2002, is an icon on the fashion and modeling scene since the past 13 years. A vivacious compere, anchor and choreographer, she has been associated with top brands like IDEA, Audi, Mercedes, ASSOCHAM, L’Oreal, Levi’s, Shoppers Stop, Filmfare, Femina, Roopam, Digjam, among many others, in various capacities. She has also been the travel show host for Discovery TLC and hosted the 1st Indian Badminton League in India.
Sandhya feels, “Fashion modeling is unique in creating great illusions.” When she is on the ramp, her transformation from an innocent girl to the epitome of seductive elegance is just mind-blowing. With one friendly smile, she transforms the image of a model with an attitude into the girl-next-door with great aplomb. She firmly believes, “To be a successful model, it takes a great amount of intelligence and discipline apart from being just a pretty face and have a great body.” Little wonder then she has worked with India’s leading choreographers like Hemant Trivedi, Lubna Adams, Achala Sachdev, Sangeeta Chopra, Shakir Shaikh, Rohit Verma, Rehan Shah and designers like Rocky S, Shaina N C, Anita Dongre, Kaushik Shrimanker, Vikram Phadnis, Aslam Khan, Asif Merchant among others.
