Winner of Miss United Kingdom 2008 Lisa Lazarus has set her heart on Bollywood, and is even defending it from people who say that the Indian movie industry is second best to Hollywood.
Foreign actors, who set their sights on Bollywood, are said to be has-beens or Hollywood rejects, but Dubai-based Lazarus believes otherwise, and says that some people think so because they are jealous.
“I became aware of these misgivings only when I landed in India. But the way I see it, these are the thoughts of people who don''t understand Bollywood,” the Gulf News quoted her as saying.
“And if they don''t understand something, they are just quick to knock it off. I don''t care about them,” she added with a beatific smile.
Lazarus will make her debut in Khan''s period drama Veer, playing the role of a Western princess who is enchanted by the shirtless Khan.
The film is slated to be released in the second half of the year.
