Lauren Gottlieb Will enter Bollywood Soon
Arizona girl, Lauren Gottlieb debuted in Remo D’Souza’s dance musical ABCD: Anybody Can Dance. But it was on the reality dance show Jhalak Dikhlaja Jaa (Season 6) that this 25-year-old really got everyone to get up and take notice including Hrithik Rishan, Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor who danced with her on the show.
The lady along with her partner Punit in the show had nearly scored marks close to perfect each time apart from high praises by all three judges every time. The girl who dances like a dream and can partially speak Hindi is the next big thing to happen in Bollywood. The gossips of Lauren to be the next ‘Katrina Kaif of Bollywood’ has already commenced.
She says, “Since I was young I have always known that I was destined for big things. I have always done something which is bigger and better. I wouldn’t like to be compared to anybody. Katrina has done a great job but I wouldn’t like to follow in anyone’s footsteps. I don’t think anyone has my story and done what I have done in my life. I am very proud of that.”
Lauren adds, “I love Indians and everything about India. I feel it’s a part of my fate to be in the film industry and will put my heart and soul to be a big star. I have received a couple of big offers. Everything I have done till now has been a hit so I want to feel right in my heart and weigh all my options before I take the next step. I’m not fluent in Hindi but I took Hindi classes before ABCD and feel very proud holding my own in the scenes. It was one of the biggest challenges in my life but now that I know the language and culture as I have been in India for almost a year, I am not as awkward as I used to be. It was a big moment for me when Ranbir Kapoor called me foreign ki Lauren.”
She goes on, “I would love to work with Ranbir and Hrithik Roshan. He danced with me on the finale and asked Remo to cast us together in ABCD2. I have seen his work and I feel acting and dancing wise he doesn’t have a co-star who can match up to him. I can match up to him.”
