MUMBAI: Bollywood tough guy Salman Khan has a date in India’s Rajasthan state next week with Hollywood actress Ali Larter, who burst on to the movie scene wearing a whipped-cream bikini in the 1999 film “Varsity Blues”. The two stars will be meeting up when Hollywood writer-director Willard Carroll finally begins rolling the cameras for his long-touted movie “Marigold,” Khan said. “The shooting starts next week,” said Khan. Macho actor Khan plays a choreographer in the film, in which Larter, who has gone on to make a name for herself in “Legally Blonde”, “House on Haunted Hill” and teen thriller “Final Destination”, plays an arrogant American actress stranded in India. During her ordeal, the actress hires Khan — who has played in dozens of Bollywood hits including ‘Tere Naam’ and ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ — as her Bollywood dance instructor, and the two fall in love. “Marigold” will also feature Nandana Sen, daughter of Nobel economics laureate Amartya Sen, in a key role. Sen made her debut in Bollywood last month with the critically acclaimed film, “Black”. — AFP
