The name Scarlett Mellish Wilson might not mean anything to many in Tamil Nadu. However, it might soon become one of their favourite names – especially for fans of actor Vijay – as the British model and dancer has danced for an ‘item number’ with Vijay in the latter’s upcoming Pongal release Jilla.
The 24-year old Scarlett, who has been in India for the past four years, has featured in many Hindi, Telugu and Kannada films and was also spotted in Vishal’s Samar. After debuting as heroine in Bollywood last year, Scarlett found many ‘item numbers’ coming her way and has been lapping up everything that’s offered to her.
Starring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal in lead roles and co-starring Malayalam megastar Mohanlal and Poornima Bhagyaraj, Jilla has music by D. Imman and has been directed by debutant director Nesan. The film would be releasing on Pongal along with Ajith Kumar’s Veeram. The ‘item number’ involving Vijay and Scarlett was filmed recently on huge and specially-erected sets. Raju Sundaram choreographed the song.
After staring in the ‘item number’, Scarlett has recorded her experience on her Twitter account. “Vijay is a good dancer and a nice human being. I had a wonderful time during the filming of the song!” says Scarlett.
