Former SPICE GIRL Emma Bunton is flying to India to launch a Bollywood movie career.

The British blonde singer is arriving in Bombay this week (begs01NOV04) and will hang out with stars and directors of the Indian music industry, for a BBC2 television documentary.

Bunton enthuses, "To go to India, where everything is so culturally different, will be an amazing experience in itself.

"But to be treated to the Bollywood lifestyle will be crazy. It's not often I get to spend real time exploring a country because I'm promoting, but this time I'll get to experience the culture first-hand and learn all about it. I can't wait."
