Courtney Act continues her second series as host of One Plus One, sitting down with well-known Australians to talk about what ‘fame’ means to them.
In 2013, Pallavi Sharda broke the barriers and made her way into the Bollywood film industry, becoming the first Australian actor of Indian descent to do so.
The Australian got her big break, landing the lead role opposite one of Bollywood’s biggest heartthrobs.
But Pallavi faced vicious backlash from Indian media when the film failed to deliver at the box office.
In this episode of One Plus One, Pallavi talks to Courtney about dealing with critics and finding success..
She discusses having success both in the United States and abroad, as well as her fight for greater diversity in the entertainment industry.
From household names, to ordinary people who’ve suddenly found themselves in the spotlight, Courtney speaks with people from a range of backgrounds. She examines how her interviewees have used their fame to champion causes, explore their passions, inform and entertain.
