Elena Fernandes Reveals Something About Bollywood That No One Has!
You may not remember her name, but you cannot forget her face. She was there in the movie Kapoor & Sons, though she had a small role in it. She’s bold, beautiful and sexy. She’s a charmer, too, and a fighter. She is Elena Fernandes.
She may not be that big a name in the industry, but Elena, through her very first film, has managed to carve out a name for herself. She played the role of Fawad Khan’s secretary in the movie and was the envy of every other newcomer. Why? Because which newcomer wouldn’t like to be acting with Fawad Khan, right? That too in a KJo film!
Though her association with Bollywood hasn’t been that long, she is already receiving offers for bigger, better roles in films. In an exclusive chat with Hindustan Times, Elena revealed some shocking details about her life and past work, which will make you respect her even more than before!
Before she entered Bollywood, Elena worked as a strip model in Mumbai. She’s been juggling between Mumbai and New York for a long time, and now because of work offers, she might settle down in the city of dreams.
Her work as a strip model was tough because she says India is still not open with nudity and sexuality and stripping, and it’ll take us a long time before we fully accept it. Further, she talked about working with Fawad, who she calls humble and caring. She said he guided her on her acting, and how to approach the role, and her role made her the object of envy of so many other girls!
Further, she talked about Social Media, and how she feels trolling is nothing else but bullying, having faced it herself. She was called a ‘skinny bitch’ on Instagram, and how she doesn’t tolerate all this at all.
Well, we feel you have a long way to go, Elena! We wait for you to come on-screen soon again!
