‘Indian actors are very popular in the US’
She may have three Academy award nominations and one golden statuette adorning her shelf, but actor Marisa Tomei is in awe of India and Bollywood actors.
“Indian actors are hugely talented. They bring their own aura to the performances they give. I have heard of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, all of the superstars back home.
They enjoy a lot of popularity in the US,” says the 46-year-old, who was recently seen in The Lincoln Lawyer, alongside actors Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Phillippe.
Tomei goes on to add, “Bollywood has made an impact, the world over. Artists from India have been working in Hollywood since a long time, and now they’re getting the recognition they always deserved.”
