You can catch her right now in The Last Legion, but you probably won’t because it appears to be one of the worst movies of the summer.
Personally, I’m not a huge Ash fan. I think her stunningly beautiful face lacks real depth. But I do wonder if she will be able to pull it off. Will she ever move to Beverly Hills, when she can stay in India and be true royalty? And what about her Bollywood husband, heir to the throne of Bachchan? Can a traditional Indian man ever succumb to the success of his wife?
It sounds like she has a couple of Hollywood films coming up like Pink Panther 2, with Steve Martin and the Roland Joffe directed period-piece Singularity, where she will play opposite Brendan (Encino Man?) Fraser as an Indian spy named Taluja.
I wonder what these means for South Asian Americans in Hollywood. Does her exposure mean that the door will open for more brown girls, or will it be a step backwards for those actresses not “exotic” enough?
