Indian-Australian model Chandrika Ravi is finally stepping into the world of Indian entertainment, and here's why she's under our spotlight!
She's not just any Indian-firangi import. She's slowly established herself by doing modelling gigs and commercials in Perth, Los Angeles and Mumbai, as well as participating in beauty pageants. She's trained in theatre and Bollywood dancing, and has the ability to blend in different glamour worlds and yet stand out. Chandrika Ravi is no novice.
And now she's officially about to take her place in the Indian glam sphere, with her upcoming South Indian debut in 'Sei'. Why leave her successful career as an international model, you ask? The Australian-born model's motivation is more than mere ambition - she intends to champion the cause of coloured women, be more than just a stereotype. “In America, I fell into the stereotyped class of ‘the Indian woman’, which is usually a doctor or nurse. I was nicknamed ‘Bollywood bombshell’ in L.A! But I didn’t want to sacrifice it all just for a paycheque. I wanted to step out of the box," said Chandrika in an interview recently.
Her dusky good looks, curves in all the right places and a fashion chameleon-like ability to rock a sari as well as a bikini, has made her a name to watch out for! Her 60k followers on Instagram will tell you the same. Swipe ahead to check out the stunner that is Chandrika Ravi...
