With the advent of mixed culture, numerous talents from across the globe are making their presence felt in the Hindi film industry. Katrina Kaif is the best example, and has made it big in Bollywood despite her heavy accent (initial) and foreign looks. And there are many more who are striving hard to make an impact in the Hindi film industry.
SOFIA HAYAT and VIDYA BALAN
Whatever may be the general perception about the vivaciously beautiful Sofia Hayat (another British actress like Katrina), her next few releases including A GOODNITE and NAACHLE LONDON will change all that.
In fact, when we asked Sofia about the kind of roles she wants to essay, she said, "I respect the kind of work/roles Vidya Balan is doing. There are several models in Bollywood who can do glamorous roles, but I am an actor and want to act. It is not that I have any reservations about the JISM kind of roles, but the thing is that there should be a justification and it should not be just for the glamour quotient."
The multifaceted actress also spoke about her musical talent (when we probed her) and surprised us by saying, "I am a jazz singer and I have performed with Louis Banks."
Well, this is indeed a matter of great prestige to have performed with the likes of internationally famous musician, Louis Banks, and we are sure that Sofia's inherent talents will surely come to light soon enough, and moreover her upcoming releases will establish her as an intelligent and talented actress.
