Paris Hilton is to model for an upmarket American fashion line in India - despite the wannabe pop star's music video being banned in the country for being too explicit. The hotel heiress will pose for her friend ANAND JON, the American designer of Indian descent, next year (07), when he launches a line of high-end evening wear for India's upper class. Jon says, "Paris is a very close friend of mine. We have known each other for a long time now. So, when I told her about this visit, she was pretty excited. "For her, India is the land of exotica and beauty. In fact, her response was, 'I finally get to visit the exotic'. She loves Indian culture and the Indian influence on clothes." Hilton's video for her debut single STARS ARE BLIND was issued an adult certification by Indian censors in August (06), banning the promo from being screened on any TV channel in the country.
