Model-turned-actress Waluscha De Sousa has praised the likes of Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra for dispelling the notions that ���models can�۪t act�.
De Sousa who had once walked the ramp as model, decided to take the leap into acting with ��Fan�۪ (2016) starring opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
In The Times of India, De Sousa spoke about the change in career, and that the plunge from modelling to acting has been ���great,� and wants to enjoy this phase of her life. “A lot of young girls use modelling as a stepping stone into Bollywood…we have Deepika and Priyanka, who have already broken this notion that models cannot act. For me, it has been a great transition.”
De Sousa added, “It is just that it happened for me now and it didn’t happen for me earlier. Right now, I am enjoying this space. I am enjoying working and acting and everything that comes with it.” After receiving plaudits for her role in ‘Fan’, De Sousa is yet to pick her second project and is busy going through scripts coming her way.
