Think you know Bollywood films? Check out the hot trailer and the music promo for the love song “Te Amo” featuring Bipasha Basu and Rana Daggubati from the new suspense thriller film DUM MAARO DUM by Abhishek Bachchan and director Rohan Sippy, the next generation of the Sholay dream team (their fathers are Amitabh Bachchan and director Ramesh Sippy, respectively). Punctuated with a soundtrack that moves from pulsating dance tracks to haunting Konkani songs, and shot right in the middle of the international tourist hot spot of Goa, Dum Maaro Dum follows three lives spiraling out of control to its shocking finale. As narrator Kamat says in the trailer, “Goa … paradise on Earth. But even in paradise you’re bound to find some snakes.”
The film is being released by Fox Searchlight Pictures and will open worldwide on April 22.
Check out for music promo for “Te Amo” after the jump.
As celebrated Bollywood film star, Shah Rukh Khan (whose latest film My Name is Khan is out on DVD now), made his debut at Madame Tussauds New York Wax Museum in Times Square last week — a part of the museum’s “Bollywood Zone” which includes film legend Amitabh Bachchan — we couldn’t help but wonder, which other Asian and Asian American greats have been immortalized in wax figure by the popular tourist attraction?
Seems like, not many.
After some sleuthing, we have found martial arts kings Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee at the Madame Tussauds Hollywood location and a tense-looking Tiger Woods at the Vegas location. And of course there’s Indian film legend Aishwarya Rai in the museum’s London location.
As for rest of the ladies? Fuggetabout it. The closest figurine we spotted even resembling an Asian woman was an eerie Michael Jackson figure made as part of a Jackson tribute at the Washington, D.C. museum.
For the rest of us itching to cuddle up with wax figures of Lucy Liu or Michelle Yeoh, we’ll have to travel a bit farther — to a Hong Kong, Shanghai or soon-to-be-opened Bangkok location to get our fix. ‘Cause frankly, putting your arms around an Asian-looking Michael Jackson just doesn’t cut it.
