In a vaguely comic turn of events, Shilpa Shetty, the Bollywood star who recently won the UK reality series Big Brother, is now in talks to create her own perfume. Jade Goody, the last Big Brother star to release her own perfume, found her scent pulled from stores after she made allegedly racist comments about Ms. Shetty. According to the Sunday Mirror, Ms. Shetty is...
...a big fan of the Body Shop - especially all the fruity smells, so she'd probably like her perfume to be like that.
What the world needs now is another fruity floral celebrity perfume release, so I for one will sleep better tonight knowing another is on the way.

Update: Shilpa Shetty's new fragrance will be called S2 (aka S squared):
Perfume creator Mark Earnshaw told BANG Showbiz [...] "Shilpa worked with us on the perfume and it contains all the notes that she's grown up loving. [...] "It's got jasmine and musk but also fruit scents in it so it reflects her Indian heritage and will also appeal to the modern European market." (via LifeStyleExtra)
Update 2: Shilpa Shetty S2 is a "semi amber floral" fragrance, and features notes of mandarin, bergamot, peach, cyclamen, jasmine, sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla and musk. It will be available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette, and the bottle comes with a phone charm decorated with Swarovski crystals. (via cosmeticsint.co.uk, indiafm, cosmeticsbusiness)
