SMILIE SURIE

Do you Remember the Girl From Kalyug.
Yah The beautiful lady above is her. SHe is SMILIE SURI.

Like many other newcomers, Smilie didn’t have it easy in Bollywood. Though she was Mahesh Bhatt’s niece, the veteran filmmaker warned her that making a name for herself in the industry would involve a lot of struggle. “I remember my uncle telling me that I was not a Bipasha Basu or a Kareena Kapoor that producers would make a beeline for my house. If I have to make a name, it has to be through days and days of hard work and perseverance,” she says.

Inevitably, Smilie dreams about working with Bollywood stalwarts like Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Madhur Bhandarkar. But she’s determined to make her way forward without banking on family connections ? though she wants all the encouragement and advice possible. According to her, preparing for the next role is very important. As she states, “Acting is extremely stimulating and my journey has only just begun. But I believe that if you”re happy with the work you are doing, it’s an overwhelming feeling.”
