Move over Katrina Kaif, Bollywood may just have found its hottest firang import yet. Elli Avram, who's become the cynosure of attention as a contestant in Bigg Boss Season 7, will be making her big screen debut in Mickey Virus, alongside popular Jhalak Dikhla Jaa host Manish Paul.
Judging by the series of foreign models and actresses who have been making their debut in Bollywood, language is no bar for most newcomers. Elli's talents other than acting (and spanking good looks) include dancing and a flair for the artistic. She had also participated in Miss Greece 2010. And there is no ignoring that unmistakable resemblance she shares with Katrina. Maybe that's what the Bigg Boss inmates might start calling her!
She also has a filmy background since her mother is Swedish actress Maria Granlund, who has worked with legendary director Ingmar Bergman in his Oscar-winning film 'Fanny and Alexander'.
Elli has been training in dance forms like ballet, bellydance, kathak, bharatnatyam, jazz, bollywood and modern dance. She has also taken Hindi lessons and we're sure that the 'no English' rule in the Bigg Boss house will do her grasp on the language a world of good.
This seems like one newbie worth watching out for! So stay tuned to the latest season of Bigg Boss and this space for more!
