Since Priyanka Chopra's cousin Parineeti Chopra made her highly successful debut in Bollywood last year, dozens of cousins of B-Towns A & B list celebs are joining the film fraternity!
We now have a new addition... Sonakshi Sinha's cousin; Bhavna Ruparel, is set to make her debut as a full-fledged actress with a Telugu film and is keen to do meaty roles in movies.
"I am doing a Telugu film, which will start rolling in November. There are some Hindi projects as well on the pipeline,"
The 23-year-old is not new to the arclights as she did a video with Ken Ghosh when she was eight years old and also featured as a child artist in "Na Tum Jaano Na Hum " (2002) and "Joggers' Park" (2003).
When asked about her choice of films, the aspiring actress said she would like to do some sensible cinema.
"I don't believe in this whole game of making Rs.100 crore at the box office. For me, it is all about script. When a beautiful film like 'Udaan' can be made in Rs.8 crore and can obtain such outstanding response, then I believe there is still some sensible cinema being made in our country," Bhavna said.
"I am open to do both offbeat and commercial films, but all depends on the script," she added.
Talking about her journey so far and relationship with cousin Sonakshi Sinha;
"It's been a lovely journey so far. I am hoping to take some good advice from her. Like any other relationship even I and Sonakshi bonded very well since childhood. We used to meet during Diwali and Holi and used to have a good time,"
"There is no comparison or any sort of pressure in our family. I will do it to the best of my ability and make my family proud," she added.
Now let us wait and see if she can make as big of an impact in the industry and Priyanka's cousin has!
