is to star in a Bengali-language remake of the biopic Dirty Picture
The reality television star is most famous for hosting a show where she auditioned future husbands for herself.
Sawant told The Times of India
: "The film is based on the life of an item girl and it is only befitting that I take on the role as I am the original item girl of Bollywood.
"I admire Vidya [Balan] a lot. I think she is a great actress and she did a great job in the film. But now it is my turn and I will do a better ooh lala than her. After this film I am hoping that everyone will chant only my name.
"I have only done item songs and done small parts in films. This will be the very first time that I will be doing a full fledged film with dialogues, song and dance and that too in Bengali.
"I have already done an item song in Shatabdi's film Om Shanti
. I am learning Bengali because I want to dub for myself. I have asked the director to give me the full Bengali script written in Hindi."
Sawant has described herself as Bollywood's best item girl because of her body
In August 2011, she said she wants to insure several different parts of her body, including her face and hair
