The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute New York may have produced numerous acting talents in Hollywood, but it came to be known in Bollywood, when the scion of Kapoor family, the handsome Ranbir Kapoor, made a scintillating debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Sawaariya. Although the film did not do too well, Ranbir's superb acting and tremendous screen presence was noticed and appreciated by one and all and naturally the name of the institute, which prepared him was splashed all over the tinsel town, as Ranbir grabbed almost all the best male debut awards.
So, why are we repeating news that is history? Well, one person who was really impressed with Ranbir and his acting classes in New York is his co-star of Rajkumar Santoshi's upcoming Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, Katrina Kaif, and has got her sister Isabelle enrolled at the Lee Starsberg Theatre & Film Institute.
While Katty baby had earlier denied that her sister (a regular on her sets) was joining the industry, but she now admits that Isabelle is interested in joining films after a year or so. And as a result she has enrolled in the acting classes. Katrina also confirms that Isabelle is a good dancer and her weakness, like Katrina, is her fluency in Hindi, which will also be an area to be worked upon, before Isabelle makes her Hindi film debut.
Here's a hearty welcome to Isabelle! With Anushka, Asin and Genelia making a tremendous entry last year, it appears that next year will witness another promising starlet in the form of Isabelle. The more, the merrier!
