Australian model Kristina Akheeva hopes to get more movie offers after the release of her Bollywood debut film Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 as she wants to make a career in the Hindi film industry.

Akheeva was on a modelling contract in India when she saw a Hindi movie and since then can't get enough of Bollywood films.

After refusing a few odd roles, she finally got her big break with the Deols - Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby - in YPD 2, a sequel to 2011 release of the same name.

"I was in India for a modelling contract and I got introduced to Bollywood while I was here. I started to watch a lot of Bollywood movies and I got hooked on to it. I started to think if I get an opportunity here that would be very exciting. Last year I was offered YPD and I am really happy to get a break with such a big film," Akheeva told PTI.

"I am really keen on making a career here and am hoping to get good offers after the movie releases," she added.

She might not be familiar with Hindi but in the movie Akheeva has a few dialogues in the language for which she took month long lessons.

"I like to challenge myself and I don't see language as limitation. I have to just work that little bit harder than other people. In this film also I am speaking in Hindi so I worked very hard and I will just keep doing that. So by next film I don't want language to be an issue. I should get any kind of roles."

YPD 2 is directed by Sangeeth Sivan and will release on June 7.
