Rachel Shelley in Lagaan (2001).
Even though Bollywood cinema usually tends to be a bit too camp for my taste, I did enjoy watching the Oscar-nominated Lagaan – with the exception of one slightly anticlimactic cricket match, which seemed to go on f-o-r-e-v-e-r – and especially liked the song “Oh Rey Chori” for various reasons (both auditory and…um…visual ones…):
Aamir Kahn, Gracy Singh, and Rachel Shelley in “Oh Rey Chori” from Lagaan, vocals by Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, and Vasundhara Das.
And for those who want the inside scoop: She writes about her experiences on the set of Lagaan in this Guardian piece.
