Salman Khan is like Tom Cruise of India: Lauren Gottlieb
If international dancer-actress Lauren Gottlieb hopes to be seen in an action film soon a la Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, she also wants to team up with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan
"I am looking to stretch myself. To come across the world and take projects in different languages is a big challenge.
I want to make sure that I am growing. I have been in India for five months and it has taught me so much. Project-wise, I want to take something which stretches me. I would love to be the Angelina Jolie of India," Lauren told IANS.
In terms of projects, if she is looking for action-based films, she also hopes to work with Hindi film superstar Salman. "I would want to be with Salman Khan. He is like the Tom cruise of India... I am waiting to see what happens," she said. Meanwhile, she has put her dancing shoes on to participate in "Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa" and said that reality shows provide a great platform for artists like her.
"'Jhalak...' came at a perfect time. I am excited to see where this goes. I saw how 'So You Think You Can Dance' pushed my career and got Bollywood looking at me. I know what this platform (reality shows) can do for you," she said. The actress revealed that "I have got a couple of offers for films, but I can't speak about it now".
