Brazil and Bollywood may not have a live connection as such but there is something that attracts one to the other, as can be ascertained from the fact that at least five super hot Brazilian beauties have made their entry (or are about to) into the Hindi film industry.
The one grabbing the eyeballs and headlines presently is the TEEN PATTI item girl, Maria Gomez, whose seductive gyrations with the megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the song, "Neeyat Kharab Hai", has become the talk of the tinsel town.
Brazilian beauty, Giselle Monteiro, as the beautiful, demure Punjabi girl Harleen, Saif Ali Khan's love interest in Imtiaz Ali's LOVE AAJ KAL, won many a hearts with her bewitching smile and innocent face. She has already settled for a career in Bollywood and has started learning Hindi. She is likely to be next seen in Ravi Chopra's PURANI JEANS. And who can forget the vivacious Bruna Abdullah in Anubhav Sinha's CASH, where she danced her way into the people's heart through the item song, "Raham Kare".
The TEEN PATTI connection comes to fore again, as the fourth Brazilian beauty is Daniela Lavender, wife of Sir Ben Kingsley. She will be seen Ben Kingsley's TAJ where she essays the role of Kandhari Begum.
Last and not the least is the Brazilian super model, Giselle Bundchen, who scorched the September issue of Vogue India magazine in a sexy gorgeous green Suneet Varma designed saree, catching the eyes of quite a few filmmakers who have offered her roles in their projects.
Here's a toast to the Brazil-Bollywood bond. Cheers!
