US celebrity socialite Paris Hilton declared her love for India soon after she arrived in Mumbai on Saturday on her first visit to the country where she will launch an exclusive handbag range.
Dressed in a blue pantsuit, wide belt and huge sunglasses, the 30-year-old hotel chain heiress was mobbed by fans and photographers at Mumbai’s international airport before leaving for an upmarket hotel.
Hilton, who is in India to launch the fall and winter designs of her handbags and accessories, met many Bollywood actors at a party hosted in her honour on Saturday in Mumbai, India’s entertainment hub.
The trip seems to have gone well for Hilton, who claims to have received two Bollywood offers and says she is open to working in the Hindi film industry — provided she gets suitable scripts. “I have been approached to do two Bollywood films. But I am not keen on them. However, if a good script comes up, I am willing to do it. Bollywood films are beautiful, I love the clothes in them,” said the blonde beauty.
Hilton, who unveiled the collection at a media gathering, said she does not want to miss taking back “good memories” along with “Indian saris, bindis and jewellery”. A yoga enthusiast, Hilton sported a sari for the cover shoot of an Indian fashion magazine recently, and says she adored the traditional outfit and wants to wear it ‘back home’ as well.
