Model-actress Lisa Haydon got a taste of the impact that Indian cinema has on the audience abroad. This realisation happened due to the recently concluded International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards 2013 in Macau.
Lisa was happy with the effect Bollywood has on so many people. "One of the nicest things about IIFA 2013 was realising how far-reaching the affects of Indian cinema actually are. When you're working every single day and heading to studios, you don't realise to how many people in the world your films actually affect," said Aisha fame Lisa on July 8 at an event by hair care group, Schwarzkorf.
The 27-year-old was glad that people abroad too know Bollywood celebrities names."So, to interact with all the foreign media and foreign fans and they all know your name... that felt really good," she added.
One of Lisa's forthcoming films, Santa Banta, also starring Vir Das and Boman Irani, was heavily promoted at the three-day extravaganza. A press conference was held for the actors to share an insight about the film, and Lisa says it was "really special".
Before entering the film world with Aisha in 2010, Lisa was a successful model. Post Aisha, she was seen in Rascals, and she has even done an item number in a Telugu film titled Rachaa.
