The original BollyDoll Book and series of Fine Art Illustrations was created by visual artist and singer Amrita Sen, a well-known Bollywood Singer for Film, Television and Live Performance in North America.
You may remember Amrita from the performance of “Jai Ho” at the 2009 Academy Awards, where she performed the winning song from the movie Slumdog Millionaire with music legend AR Rahman.
Amrita has also performed as the lead singer on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and at the Hollywood Bowl, accompanying the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Amrita has released records with Weezer, Timbaland, Pitbull, and Ozomotli, among many other collaborators. She has written and performed multiple movie and film titles with her signature Bollywood vocals, including the title track for NBC sitcom “Outsourced” as well as theme songs for the TV show “Psych” on USA Networks. You can hear Amrita in various commercials and campaigns including Honda, Jaguar and Sprite.
Amrita was recently featured in the song “Don’t Hold the Wall” in Justin Timberlake’s album 20/20 Experience, and was credited as “BollyDoll”. She will be releasing a solo track on Timbaland’s up and coming solo album.
Amrita, who is also a trained visual artist, debuted her illustrations in last year’s Art Basel in Miami Beach, sponsored by Illy Coffee and presented by Timbaland.
