She is set to hit Indian silver screens with Hollywood film, The Man In The Maze. But ex-Australian beauty queen Liana Werner-Gray is already in awe of Bollywood and, more interestingly, Katrina Kaif. In fact, Liana calls herself a “Katrina fan.”
“I find Katrina really attractive and talented. In fact, I would love to do a film — ideally an action movie — with her. Since I am Australian and Katrina is from India, an action venture will bring a dynamic contrast. Also, since she is a very beautiful girl, I’m sure people would love to see her doing action,” she says.
Liana, who plays Megan in Mitesh Kumar Patel’s movie, has already watched a couple of Katrina’s films including Priyadarshan’s De Dana Dan (2009). “Katrina looks very vivacious and fresh on screen. And I remember the film with the song, Paisa Paisa… (De Dana Dan). I haven’t met her yet but I would love to connect,” she adds.
Before acting in The Man In The Maze, Liana has also worked as a production assistant in films like 2010’s Assisting Venus, Sinatra Club and The Fighter. But now, she is keen to do a Bollywood film. “I am waiting for an offer to come my way. In fact, I am meeting a few people from the industry. I would love to work with the Paisa paisa director (Priyadarshan),” she says.
Currently in India topromote her film, Liana says she loves Indian food and the people. “And I am really excited about my film releasing in India before it opens in the US.”
