In the past, Bollywood hasn’t taken too kindly to those non-Indian residence who want to make their mark within the industry. However as times are changing, so is the hearts of the Indian fraternity, where filmmakers are now looking for those non Hindi-speaking talents. One such name is Evelyn Sharma who believes her half-German origin is working in her favour in every way.
“It’s been a positive (to be a foreigner in Bollywood). It is up to the directors – if they dress me up in western, I can carry off the look well, and I can also carry the traditional look in Indian wear for an Indian character, ” Mid-Dayreported the actress stating.
Having bagged roles in films like ‘Nautanki Saala’ (2013), ‘Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani’ (2013) and most recently ‘Yaariyan’ (2014), Sharma will next be seen David Dhawan’s ‘Main Tera Hero’. However, her following film ‘Bhaiyyaji Superhit’ seems to be the one to look out for, where the model-turned-actress is set to play a more traditional character. Talking about the film and what’s to come, Sharma adds, “I play a cute, traditional, very desi girl in ‘Bhaiyyaji Superhit’. After that, I also have my first solo heroine film, but I can give more details on that only later.”
