New Delhi, Oct 15: British Playboy star Shanti Dyanamite, who will be seen flaunting her sexy toned figure in an upcoming Bollywood film, says she fell in love with Bollywood while growing up in India.
The 21-year-old adult star is of Indian descent from Britain.
"While growing up in Indian culture, I fell in love with the world of Bollywood. My all-time favourite stars are Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, Sridevi, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan and now I am going to be part of the great industry, I feel blessed," said Shanti in a statement.
Shanti, who does adult chat shows for a UK television, began her career as a teenager, starting as a glamour model on the popular Hotel Voyeur, a Britain-based topless show.
Her mother is a Punjabi and her father is a Greek and they got divorced when she was very young. Her mother brought her up single-handedly.
Her maternal grandfather was from Jalandhar, called Jullundur those days, and taken to Uganda by the British settlers among indentured labourers to develop railway lines and to work in coal mines.
Shanti has a Twitter account with a name "Sofiya". The account introduces her as "the first Punjabi to go topless on UK babeshows... an angel with a devil's mind."
