Australian actress Emma Brown Garrett, who has already debuted in Indian movies with Bengali film Shukno Lanka, has to turn blonde for her Bollywood debut movies.

Emma will be seen in Rohan Sippy’s movie Dum Maaro Dum, which stars Abhishek Bachchan. She will star opposite Sunny Deol in Yamla Pagla Deewana, which also stars veteran actor Dharmendra.

The actress has learned to speak in Hindi for her love of Indian cinema. Emma is very careful about keeping her age secret. She said, “The Bengali film industry discovered me first and offered me a good ground before I ventured into Bollywood.”

Garrett added, “In Dum Maro Dum, I speak Russian and bad English but I speak in Hindi while acting in Yamla Pagla Deewana, where I play Sunny’s wife.”

Her debut Bengali film Shukno Lanka was released this Friday, which was directed by Gaurav Pandey and stars Debashree Roy and Sabyasachi Chakraborty. Mumbai Mantra Media Ltd and the Moxie Group co-produced the movie.

This Australian brunette was a big fan of her co-star Mithun Chakraborty before meeting him on the sets of the film.

On her Indian venture, Emma said, “I, along with my husband decided to work in India and now it has been two years in this country. He is running a financial business and I tried to utilize my acting skills and it clicked. We have almost settled down here.”

She added, “Just after two weeks of arriving here, I appointed an agent and impressed the director Gaurav Pandey with my audition. Being a huge Mithunda fan, we used to watch his movies Disco Dancer and Hum Paanch.

About her training for entering Bollywood, the actress said, “In Mumbai, I had a Punjabi guru, who taught me Urdu and Hindi from the very beginning. I can speak a little Hindi now and can read and write as well. I watch a lot of Hindi movies and try to pick from there.”

Emma is very happy to get the opportunity to work with Bollywood veterans like Mithun Chakraborty and Dharmendra, who have already passed decades in the industry.
