Sherlyn chooses transparent dress for Cannes

New Delhi, May 20 (IANS) Actress Sherlyn Chopra, who posed for adult magazine Playboy last year, wore a transparent ensemble for a red carpet event at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival. She is there to promote her debut film "Kamasutra 3D" with the team.

Sherlyn took to the red carpet in what looks like a transparent black dress with a solid black brassiere to hide her modesty. A heavy Rajasthan-inspired neckpiece takes away a bit of the attention from the dress.

She posed before the screening of the movie "The Blind Detective" in Cannes Sunday night.

"Kamasutra 3D" director Rupesh Paul says it was a "proud moment" for his movie's team to be at the Cannes fest, where India is the guest country this year.

The film's team is there since May 15, when the fest took off, to unveil the second trailer of their film. Before leaving for Cannes, Paul had told IANS that they will also be revealing the name of the Hollywood actress who will be the lead in the movie's sequel "Kamasutra 4D", at the fest.

Siddharth calls 'Kaaviya Thalaivan' his toughest film

Southern actor Siddharth Suryanarayan, known for Tamil films such as "Boys", "Aayutha Ezhuthu" and "Udhayam", says his upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual period-romance "Kaaviya Thalaivan" will be the toughest project in his career.

"Getting into pre-production tomorrow for my most difficult film yet. Vasanthabalan's 'Kaaviya Thalaivan'. It's going to be a special journey," Siddharth posted on his Twitter page.

Vasanthabalan, known for National award-winning Tamil drama "Veyil", will helm the project, which is said to be based on the relationship between renowned southern singing couple S.G. Kittappa and K.B. Sundarambal.

The team is yet to zero in on the rest of the cast, including the female lead.

Sashikanth, who had previously produced Siddharth in Tamil-Telugu bilingual "Love Failure", will produce this film under his home banner YNOT Studios.

Meanwhile, Siddharth is awaiting the release of his Tamil comedy "Theeya Vela Seiyyanum Kumaru".
