Shilpa Shetty gets steamy

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has shot a steamy scene for her upcoming film, ‘The Desire: A Journey of a woman’. She will be seen getting cozy with her Chinese co-star Xia Yu in the movie. Shilpa said that it is the demand of the script and she has no qualms in shooting the intimate scene. The scene was shot aesthetically.

The story is about an Odissi dancer and her journey. In the movie, she falls for a Chinese man. "I had no qualms in doing these scenes as these sequences are an integral part of the film, and have been aesthetically shot," says Shilpa.

Says a source, "In the film, a world famous Chinese painter is madly in love with Shilpa's character Gautami, but she does not really respond to him. These sequences are a part of the story building up to how far their friendship goes."

She portrays the character of Gautami. "The film traces Gautami's journey through a number of years. The love story is beautiful and the passion between the two characters is almost like a painting. I would say that it's my character Gautami, who is bold, and not the scenes per say," explains Shilpa.
