Mumbai: Shilpa Shetty’s fitness DVD Shilpa’s Yoga emerged a sell-out in the European markets last month, beating other fast-selling workout videos of fitness specialists Davina McCall, Samanda, Erin Boag, Karen Hardy, Rebecca Wheatley, Nell McAndrew, Fleur Murray, Lilia Kopylova, Gaynor Faye and Danielle Llyod.
Shemaroo Entertainment will be exclusivly releasing the DVD in India.
After topping the charts abroad, the popular DVD is being dubbed in Hindi and readied for a release in India a few weeks from now.
Shilpa often takes a tip or two from Baba Ramdev’s television programs. She even visited his camp at the Bandra Kurla Complex last month on his trip to Mumbai and presented him with a copy of her yoga DVD.
Shetty has been practicing yoga daily for four years and she has taken special training from Shiv Kumar Mishra and Vinayak Dixit. The DVD showcases the right techniques of doing ashtanga yoga including breathing techniques.
Shot at the backwaters in Kerala, the DVD is produced by Shilpa’s newly-launched production house S2 Global Productions and directed by Manish Jha (of the critically-acclaimed feature films Matrabhoomi and Anwar fame). While Arghya Lahiri has written the script, the camerawork is handled by Englishman Jamie Sowlds.
