New Delhi, Aug 1: ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ actress Evelyn Sharma says she is turning down offers of item numbers and glamorous roles as she wants to do performance-oriented films in Bollywood. Evelyn, who is famous for her glamorous avatars in films like ‘Yaariyan‘ and ‘Main Tera Hero‘ now wants to impress the audience with her acting skills.
“I have been getting offers of sexy roles and item numbers, but now I want to explore my acting and do characters which require me to perform.
“It is not that I did not like doing what I did but now I want to show people my acting and I am confident that with my upcoming projects, I will be able to break that image,” Evelyn told PTI.
The 28-year-old actress will be next seen in the lead role in crime-thriller ‘Dannk’, to be helmed by ‘The Train’ director Hasnain Hyderabadwala and an untitled project, where she will play the role of a small town Indian girl.
Meanwhile, Evelyn is excited about her international singing debut. Following the footsteps of Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra, who has released three singles, Evelyn has recorded an international number ‘Something Beautiful’. ”It is not pop in nature, it is about my journey in life.
I have always been passionate about singing but never thought I could sing professionally. This just fell on my lap and I grabbed it,” she said.
