‘Desi Girl’ Roshni Chopra now eyes Hollywood

After chasing hens, bathing buffaloes and picking cow dung, TV actress Roshni Chopra, who was crowned India’s first “Desi Girl”, is riding high on success and says she may shine on international arena soon.

“I think it’s great time for me personally and professionally. As doors to bigger platforms have opened for me. I am rolling on a Hollywood project which makes me feel so content. However, it’s too early to disclose details about it. And soon you will see me on the big screen in Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Phirr’,” she said.

“Phirr” is a romantic thriller and also stars “1920″ fame pair Ada Sharma and Rajnish Duggal.

“In the film, I am playing an NRI girl who is living in Newcastle in England. Rajnish is playing my husband. He is a doctor and I am a law professor,” said Roshni who says her marriage has not created any obstacle in her career.

“I know that the industry is opening up. But I want to be one of those actresses who makes it big so that other people do not feel that they cannot get married. My career has not been affected so far.”

Roshni, who entered showbiz with Zee TV’s popular serial “Kasamh Se”, has not completely switched the lane as her hands are full with television offers.

“I want to be very selective about my TV choices. I will not say no, but it has to be very good. I was to host the show ‘Kitchen Champion’, which Ronit Roy is now hosting, but due to overlap of dates I could not take the offer.

“I am going through a lot of scripts of fiction and non-fiction based shows. But I’m tight lipped about them as they are all in the pipeline,” Roshni said.

“Desi Girl”, hosted by popular actor Rohit Roy, started with eight glamour girls – Sambhavna Seth, Kashmera Shah, Roshni Chopra, Monica Bedi, Anmol Singh, Rucha Gujarati, Ishitta Arun and Aushima Sawhney.

In the show, these city girls had to adopt tough village life by performing the daily chores that included cooking, bathing and feeding cattle and cleaning house.

Roshini, 30, says “purity of intent” helped her get an edge over the other contestants.

“The show has made me grow as an individual, the innocence and love that I have received has recharged my senses. Now I feel as if I have gone through an inner cleansing process,” she said.
