Seems another model has found the Bollywood spotlight. Angela Jonsson — touted to be Ranbir Kapoor’s new girl — is preparing for her Hindi film debut, but admits she’s in no hurry. “I am very interested in Bollywood. But I don’t want to jump into it unprepared. I am undergoing Hindi diction and acting training to make a solid debut,” says the swimsuit model.
Angela admits she hasn’t always been interested in acting. “I got interested in Bollywood only recently. It has its own culture with song-and-dance routines,” reveals the model, who has studied at the American School in Kodaikanal. Born to an Indian mother and Icelandic father, Angela lived in Bangaluru before moving to Mumbai. That’s probably why she’s open to working in south Indian films. “I have been meeting filmmakers there,” she says.
Of late, Angela has made constant headlines because of her alleged relationship with Ranbir Kapoor. “I’d rather not comment on it because it’s very personal,” she says, about being spotted at Ranbir’s party at his Pali Hill bungalow. Ask Angela if she would like to work with Ranbir and she says: “There are a lot of new actors who are talented and hard-working. I would love to work with all of them.”
