Ledford ‘Out of Control’ in Bollywood

Thesp to speak bits of Hindi as pic progresses

NEW DELHI — Former “Baywatch” star Brandy Ledford has come on board Bollywood producer-director Vashu Bhagnani’s pic “Out of Control.”

Pic will be made in two versions — a shorter one in English for foreign audiences and a longer one in Hindi that will cater to Indian auds’ love of song and dance.

Ledford will play an American woman who agrees to marry a middle-class Indian man (Ritesh Deshmukh) in New York for immigration reasons.

The man keeps the marriage secret, and on his return to India for his sister’s wedding, he is emotionally blackmailed into marrying a local woman.

“Brandy speaks English for the first four reels of the Hindi version, after which she picks up bits and pieces of Hindi as her character gets more and more Indianized,” Bhagnani told reporters.

Shooting has already begun, and the movie is set for release in October.

English version will run 115 minutes, the Hindi version 140 minutes.
