The foreign beauty has definitely made a splash in a short span of time. Besides, she has been paired opposite the bigwigs of Bollywood. In an exclusive interview, Elnaaz extensively spoke to us about these stars she grew up watching and the ones she wants to work with. When asked which actors in India she wants to work with, Elnaaz replied: “In India, it has been a childhood thing, it has been Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Salman Khan.” The actress asserts she grew up watching Bollywood films and it was always her plan to become an actor. Elnaaz also thinks that Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio is a fabulous actor.
However, Elnaaz’s all-time favourite is Hollywood veteran, Meryl Streep. “My all-time favourite actress has always been Meryl Streep. I have seen so many films of hers. I respect her so much. I follow her so much because I feel that she also had a great time of struggle. She also was rejected so many times and in so many ways. But she worked her way up with great acting skills which I am not sure if I will ever be able to reach but I am trying to, I have been attending so many workshops. She is one woman I really respect and I really look up to. If I ever get a chance to work with her, I will pay. I am not dreaming that high yet, but people say you should dream big,” she elaborated.
