The half-Indian half-German Evelyn Sharma, who made news as Bollywood's latest fashionista sometime ago, seems to be emerging the first foreigner after Katrina Kaif to get a good grip on Bollywood. The newbie hasn't even completed a year in the industry yet, but has just tucked her fifth film in her over-flowing kitty this week. Evelyn will now also be seen playing a lead with Vicky Donor star Ayushmann Khurrana, Delhi Belly fame Kunaal Roy Kapur and newcomer Pooja Salvi in Rohan Sippy's next!
When Sippy offered Evelyn "a beautiful role" with her friend and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani co-star Kunaal Roy Kapur, she did not hesitate a bit and jumped on board with enthusiasm. "Having shot for four movies, my acting and especially my Hindi diction, have improved a lot," quips the girl, who in spite of her half-foreign origins, dubs for herself.
Evelyn will be seen making her debut with a funky role in the comedy From Sydney With Love releasing in the first week of August. Directed by veteran filmmaker Pramod Chakravorty's grandson Prateek Chakravorty, the film's songs and promos have already gained good popularity with the youth.
The girl is also working hard towards her first full-length lead in T-Series' next tentatively titled Class of 2013. She plays a glamorous dream girl in the movie, which happens to be the directorial debut of Super Cassettes icon Bhushan Kumar's enterprising wife Divya Khosla Kumar.
That apart, Evelyn Sharma plays a very spiritual girl opposite Prateik Babbar in Issaq and a sexy ditz in Ayan Mukerji's Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani - The Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer under Karan Johar's banner Dharma Productions. Her first film From Sydney with Love is releasing on August 3.
