We had a very good time interviewing our Star Reader, the Bollywood Sensation EVELYN SHARMA. She was so kind and generous in answering some of the questions for our readers.
Who are some of your favourite authors – Indian or International?
I love reading works of Jiddu Krishnamurti, Khaled Hosseini and Plum Sykes.
Which book or books have influenced you the most? What are you currently reading or last read?
The book that influenced me the most is the Bible. It speaks to you in different ways no matter how many times you read it :) right now I am reading Khaled Hosseini’s And The Mountains Echoed. I love his books. There is so much sadness combined with hope in them, it really touches me.
Which of your movies do feel is the most literary – had the best story and dialogue?
The best story and dialogues would be Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. I would love to act in a more literary film. Like a novel turn movie or a more historic film.
Do you have plans to write your autobiography? Or if you had to pick one author to be your biographer, who would that be?
I always wanted to write an autobiography, but I never know where to start. My life has been so eventful that it would probably need two or three volumes to tell it all!
Apart from Chetan Bhagat, which Indian writer’s works would make good Bollywood?
I think there are many talented writers in India and I would love to see more movies with interesting new stories.
Which Indian book would you like to see adapted into a Bollywood film? And which character would you like to play?
Indian mythology and history is so amazing that I would love to see more movies based on old epic stories. I would like to play a Mughal princess.
