Sean 'Diddy' Combs is an extravagant Hip Hop mogul with impeccable taste. For Ciroc Vodka's latest commercial, Ciroc Ultra Premium presents a short film titled Luck be a Lady. The clip is packed with many familiar and sexy faces and if you take a closer look, you'll recognize Desi girl Manjit!
Born in England and now living in New York, Manjit is a singer, songwriter, and model. Working on her music as the moment, Manjit spared a bit of time for Diddy to make a cameo appearance in Luck be a Lady. "I've known Puff (Diddy) through mutual friends for about 12 years and for the advert they wanted someone who was in music to play a DJ instead of just a model," Manjit tells us. "James Cruz (Diddy's manager) thought of me and Puff agreed so they called me up the night before! 8 hours later I was on a plane to Las Vegas from New York," so the tale goes as to how Manjit was given this opportunity.
We had to ask Manjit how Diddy really is and what it is like spending time with the superstar. She dishes and tells us, "He is always working hard, but always makes it fun. He was so full of energy and it was just like a fun night out with Diddy." That doesn't surprise us and after watching Luck be a Lady we expect even more.
Luck be a Lady stars Chad Michael Murray, Michael K. Williams, Aaron Paul, and Jesse Williams. On the women's ensemble you have Eva Pigford, Dania Ramirez, Chrissy Teigen, Jerica Lamens, and Jessica White. Each star looks flawless. Hair and make-up are perfectly set and each wardrobe choice is immaculate. Did it take the guys any longer to get ready? "Not really," Manjit says, "they were all so nice and polite talking to us girls whilst we were having our make-up done. They all had screaming fans following them around the hotel lobby, which was kind of funny. I was really impressed at how nice everyone was. Everyone really bonded well on set; it was a lovely talented crew."
With so many memories and stories, we asked Manjit to recall just one special moment from the whole shoot. She tells us, "I did one scene with Matt Goss, who now has a show in Vegas, but he used to be in the huge British Pop group BROS. I remember my cousin had posters of him on the wall when I was growing up! It was so nice to bond with a fellow Brit and talk about how much we love Indian food!"
Manjit is a stunner is her sparkly gold dress and owning the turntables. She is currently working on her EP Ocean and a Curse, which is co-produced by Chris Sholar. We look forward to seeing and hearing more from Manjit in 2012!
