In a delicious cultural swap, British pop star Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton sneaked into Mumbai and did everything that Sameera Reddy, the "Musafir" star, normally does, including a cameo appearance in a Bollywood film.

"Last week, she came to Mumbai and did all the things I do. Now, I will be going to London and Bristol to do things she does," quipped Sameera.

Sameera took personal interest in Emma's short trip to Mumbai. "I sat with the BBC and planned her visit to Mumbai. I wanted her to live those couple of days exactly the way I do," said the actress.

Sameera had Baby Spice dressed by Mumbai designer Rocky S and sent to the sets of "Pal Tham Gaya".

The Spice Girl filmed a song sequence with the charismatic Sammir Dattani and Soha Ali Khan for the Hriday Shetty film, starring Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia.

"She was in a state of shock. As for me, she has planned a surprise for me in London, just like I planned a surprise for her. But I've an inkling that she has arranged this shopping spree for me," said Sameera.

Sameera will soon leave for London to get a feel of Emma Bunton's lifestyle. The self-styled Indian Spice Girl will shop where Emma does and make a guest appearance in the hit series 'Casualty'.

"I shall get a feel of the British paparazzi. I will be splashed in all the British tabloids just like she is. While she had the 'Indian Standard Time' experience in Mumbai, I'll be subjected to British punctuality."

Asked how she secured this privilege, Sameera replied, "Basically they wanted a chirpy Bollywood actress with a metropolitan image, who could bring a feel of Bollywood to England."

Asked if the two are exchanging boyfriends, Sameera giggled, "Ha! There wasn't anyone for her here."

Sameera will return to Mumbai in time for "Musafir's" release.
