International dancer-actress Lauren Gottlieb, currently seen as one of the contestants on celebrity dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6", reveals right now she is reading scripts and waiting for the right project to come her way

Lauren made her Bollywood debut with choreographer-director Remo D'Souza's 3D dance movie - 'ABCD- Any Body Can Dance'. 'I am reading a couple of scripts right now, which is always a fun thing to do. I am waiting for the next project that just feels right,' Lauren told reporters Monday at the Lakme Fashion Week, where she walked the ramp for designer duo Poonam and Rohit.

'It was always a dream to get into films. I didn't know it was going to happen in India, but it kind of seems like a part of my destiny to be here,' she added. Thanks to the love she gets from fans here, Lauren feels at home in India. The 25 year-old came into limelight after winning American dance reality show 'So You Think You Can Dance'. Recently, the trained dancer gave a spellbinding classical performance on 'Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa 6' with her dancing partner Punit Pathak.

For Lauren, it was a challenge to learn and perform a classical act just in a week. 'It's a challenge to try to do something, which people take a life time to learn and I had to do it one week, four days actually. So, it was a big challenge,' Lauren said. 'It was the public, who wanted to see me doing something in classical and I had a great time doing it,' she added. 'Jhalak...' is being judged by Remo, filmmaker Karan Johar and actress Madhuri Dixit. Now contestants, Mukti Mohan, Shaan, Drashti Dhami, Sonali and Sumanth, besides Lauren are vying for the title.
