Candice Boucher, the Playboy model from South Africa, is making her Bollywood debut with director Prashant Chadha's film Aazaan.
Candice says in an interview to the IANS news agency that she was not unaware of Bollywood when she lived in South Africa.
“I did know about Bollywood before doing this film because while growing up in South Africa, we did have a few Indian movies showcased on the TV. I was aware a little bit about the industry that it's very colourful and has a lot of music and dance,” Candice is quoted as saying by the news service.
“I don't remember the names of the film right now, but as far as the actors are concerned, I am a big fan of Aishwarya Rai. She is gorgeous and a great actress too. The fact that she has made a mark not only in Bollywood but also Hollywood, speaks a lot about her. She is beautiful,” added the 27-year-old model.
Aazaan is slated for an Oct 14 release. In the film, Candice plays a sand artist. The film is an international espionage thriller about an informant who has to go undercover beyond the enemy lines to save the nation from destruction by biological warfare. Candice speaks her dialogues in English in the movie.
Candice says she looks forward to learn Hindi soon but Bollywood isn’t the only thing she’s focussing on.
