Gabriella Deme­tri­ades didn’t en­joy work­ing in Bol­ly­wood

Asian Journal - - TAX -

Model-ac­tress Gabriella Deme­tri­ades, who was seen in “Son­ali Cable”, says she didn’t en­joy work­ing in Bol­ly­wood, and holds no as­pi­ra­tion to make a ca­reer in the Hindi film in­dus­try.

“I didn’t en­ter Bol­ly­wood. I did just one film. Hon­estly, I didn’t love the ex­pe­ri­ence in it. So I didn’t want to do an­other film,” Gabriella told IANS.

“So, I made my way back into the fash­ion space be­cause that is where I feel most com­fort­able,” added the model, who is host­ing an AXN Orig­i­nal se­ries “Twin­ning”.

Ex­plain­ing her de­ci­sion fur­ther, she said: “There will be no Bol­ly­wood ven­ture un­less I am styling or do­ing cos­tumes for a film. I don’t think I have any goals to be in Bol­ly­wood films es­pe­cially in Hindi.”

Why?

“Be­cause I think what hap­pens with for­eign­ers is that they feel like they have to act in Hindi. It is very dif­fi­cult be­cause act­ing is one thing and speak­ing in an­other lan­guage is an­other thing. And those two don’t go hand in hand. “If I was ap­proached by Net­flix or an In­dian pro­duced project for an Eng­lish speak­ing role, then I might con­sider,” added the model of South African de­scent. Gabriella, who is said to be dat­ing Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Ar­jun Ram­pal, has her own fash­ion la­bel. She loves the con­cept of her TV show “Twin­ning”, aired on AXN. Gabriella along with Erika Packard give view­ers dif­fer­ent looks and fash­ion tips stem­ming from their unique sen­si­bil­i­ties and in­di­vid­ual style.

“It is in­ter­est­ing to have two voices on one sub­ject. We get two per­spec­tives which are very re­lat­able. It is an easy show to watch, fol­low and learn from.”
