It's not new for the girls who are based out of our Karnataka to sizzle in Bollywood. We saw Aishwarya Rai, Shilpa Shetty, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma sharing screen space with B-Town superstars.
The latest lass to join this club is Arpitha Mahajan, who is based out of our Garden City, Bangalore. Apparently, she is all set to make her debut in Bollywood in an untitled flick, with Sharad Malhotra of From Sydney With Love fame.
Reportedly, Aparajitha has done her Mass Communication in Bangalore and moved to Mumbai. She worked as a copywriter in a private firm, and later joined Anupam Kher's school of acting, where she completed a certified course. After several auditions, she was roped in to play a small role in Arshad Siddiqu's thriller 1 13 7 (Ek Tere Saat).
Speaking to leading daily, Aparajitha said, "I met the director and he narrated the script to me and elaborated on my role, and I liked both. He also chose me because he said I have very expressive eyes. In fact, I don't have many dialogues in the movie, I communicate with my eyes."
When quizzed Aparajitha about her resemblance to Twinkle Khanna, she said, "Do I really look like her? People tell me I look more like Soha Ali Khan." She also added that it's the performance and acting skills that helps in the industry, but not the resemblance.
