Amrita at IIFA: Sexy yet elegant

IIFA 2004 in Singapore declared her the Face Of The Year, and she has been on the Bollywood circuit for the right reasons. Amrita Rao has always guarded the sweet girl next door image, until we saw her playing a brash teenager in Main Hoon Na. Now, we will see her in a new avatar promoting her next film, Shortkut, at IIFA between June 11 and June 13 this year.

Amrita Rao will be present at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), this weekend to promote her film, Shortkut, scheduled for release in July this year. Directed by Neeraj Vora and produced by Anil Kapoor, its screenplay is by Anees Bazmee.

The cast of Shortkut includes Akshaye Khanna and Arshad Warsi. Sanjay Dutt and producer Anil Kapoor are also scheduled to appear in a cameo. The film is slated to be a family entertainer.

Amrita says, in a release, "Macau is a unique amalgammation of Portugal and Chinese culture, which I am quite fascinated by and looking forward to explore. This year, besides mingling with the entire film fraternity, I will be giving undivided attention to my soon-to-be-released film, Shortkut.”

Known to be a lucky mascot for many Bollywood actors, Amrita will walk the ramp with costar Arshad Warsi as part of the special IIFA Foundation Fashion Extravaganza followed by a rapid fire Q & A round with hosts Zayed Khan and Sophie Choudhary.

She is expected to wear a Wendell Rodricks outfit complemented by jewellery from the Gitanjali Group for the Fashion Extravaganza.

Her look for IIFA is all about being colour and comfortable. Amrita says, “My fashion statement will express loads of ‘green carpet’ glamour for the night, and simple yet sexy dresses for the day.”

Her green carpet and cocktail parties look will be created by designer Swapnil Shinde. Shinde has been instructed to balance sexy and elegant, so expect Amrita to depict a mix of prêt and couture at the IIFA parties.

Amrita will also wear accessories from design houses Christian Dior, FCUK, Aldo, Luxottica Group.
