Will a Bollywood actress play Bo Derek?

When it comes to sex symbols, Bo Derek has ruled the world for decades with just one performance that shook the world and made men go weak in their knees for a couple of decades.

When Bo performed the classic scene where she came out of the water of a Mexican beach, clad in a golden bikini in her 1979 film 10, she sent countless hearts aflutter not only in the US but all over the world. Overnight, the actress became the world's biggest teen icon; a fantasy for every man; a sort of phenomenon, going down in the history of cinema as the biggest sex symbol the world had ever seen.

Written and directed by Blake Edwards, the temptingly tasteful adult comedy co-starred THE SOUND OF MUSIC actress Julie Andrews and actor Dudley Moore with Bo Derek.

Now, almost thirty years later, Hollywood's biggest Indian producer Ashok Amritraj has managed to procure the remake rights of 10 and is all set to cast 'the next Bo Derek'.

"Mr Amritraj plans to launch a worldwide search for the girl who will play Bo's role in the remake," informs the filmmaker's publicist. When asked if there is a chance, the maker might cast a Bollywood actress for it, the PR specialist doesn't rule out the possibility, though he says, "it's a little early to throw up names, but you will soon get to know".

One thing is rest assured, whosoever plays the role in the remake, is going to be closely watched and adulated by millions all over the world. Only time will tell, if that name is going to be from Bollywood.

Kaizad Gustad's Hindi film BOOM released in 2003, had Bo re-enacting her popular beach scene of 10. Gustad had managed to rope her in for a cameo, where, twenty-four years after emerging the world's biggest sex icon, Bo, playing herself in the movie, fulfils the ultimate fantasy of an underworld don (played by Amitabh Bachchan). While the gorgeous Hollywood actress had come out of the water in a golden bikini in 10, she did the same in BOOM, decked in a golden sari, especially for the don.
