Malayalam actress Evelyn Sharma moves to Bollywood

She is stunning in a red sari, as seen in the new Parachute body lotion commercial on TV. She will also be seen in Euphoria’s latest music video, C U Later, a few months from now. Having entered the Indian modeling world last year, Evelyn Sharma, 26, owes her exotic looks to her Indian father and German mother.

The actress will be seen in 'From Sydney with Love' and with Ranbir Kapoor and Prateik Babbar in other projects. Already being compared to Katrina Kaif, she tells us the transition from modelling to films has its challenges. ‘‘I am constantly reminded to walk like a real person, not a model and to stop posing as if for a sari catalogue,’’ she chuckles.

The actress will be seen in 'From Sydney with Love' and with Ranbir Kapoor and Prateik Babbar in other projects.

The shoot is still going on for 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani', starring Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur, but what I have seen so far is looking great! Ayan (Mukherjee) has a clear vision and we’re all working towards fulfilling it. My character is a sexy ditz, and girly. I am the type of girl who always makes sure there’s something pink in her outfit.

Our roles do not get limited because of our nationality or complexion. I think Kalki (Koechlin) is beautiful with a very unique look and one of the biggest talents in our industry. For me, I know makeup can either bring out my western features or my Indian features. So I hope my roles will be as diverse as my heritage.

I will be seen in Manish Tiwari’s 'Issaq', opposite Prateik Babbar. That was the first movie I had signed and shot. It’s a tough movie with a lot of violence and guns and swearing. The cast is quite diverse, and Prateik is looking hot in a completely new avatar. I play Rosa, his first love, just like Rosalie in Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet.

I wear the tiniest clothes in 'Yeh Jawaani...'. I don’t think you can miss me on screen (laughs). But my role is very different from all the others.

I would love to do an item number. Item girls are super sexy and glamorous. I thought Malika Haydon rocked the dance floor in 'Agent Vinod’s song, I do the talking.

'From Sydney With Love' is scheduled to release on July 27.
