Ashanti has said that she will be part of this year’s highly antipated Gurinder Chadha’s movie, Bride & Prejudice, which stars Bollywood’s premier actress/diva/beauty queen Aishwariya Rai.
Ashanti was speaking to Ryan Seacrest on his talkshow when she let him in on what she’s been up to, besides working hard on her upcoming third album.
“I’m acting in a Bollywood/Hollywood movie called Bride & Prejudice and it’s scheduled to be out later in the year” said the R&B princess.
“I’m very excited about it. It’s rich. It’s grand. I had to fly to India to do my scenes and I had to talk, sing and dance in Hindi too. It’s wonderful learning Hindi. I loved every moment of the movie. The cast were wonderful. It’s a very funny movie. Test audiences have loved every bit of the film so do look out for it y’all.”
The hilarious musical, Bride & Prejudice is directed by Bend It Like Beckham’s Gurinder Chandha and it stars Aishwariya Rai, Martin Henderson whose work credits include Torque, The Ring and kissing Britney Spears in her Toxic video, Ashanti, Namrata Shirodkar, Naveen Andrews, Alexis Bledel and way more.
It’s scheduled to open in the UK come October 8. No word when it’s out in US and Asia yet.
