It's not an undeniable fact that Bollywood was obsessed with fair-skinned actresses for the longest time. Hardly ever any dark-complexion or a dusky girl would get a chance to play a lead role.

When it comes to films, she has worked alongside stars like John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Salman Khan, and numerous others.

Having worked with directors like Ron Howard, Danny Boyle, Woody Allen, Andy Serkis, and many other globally renowned filmmakers, she has become one of Hollywood's most sought-after Indian actresses. Her film Slumdog Millionaire even won an Oscar, and she got nominated for a BAFTA.
