While actress and fashion philanthropist Evelyn Sharma has been busy shooting for her upcoming Imtiaz Ali film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, she has been facing a strange kind of problem nowadays.
People have been asking the German-born Indian actress, if she is the daughter of Amitabh Bachchan’s heroine from Agneepath. Thing is, whenever one types Evelyn’s full name on Google, apart from auto-prompting her Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, it prompts “Evelyn Sharma mother Madhavi.”
Clicking on it takes one to a website called Celebrity Kick, which lists yesteryears actress Madhavi as Evelyn’s mother. Madhavi had worked in Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, Oriya and Bengali cinema, and is well known in Bollywood for her stellar performance in Mukul S. Anand’s legendary film Agneepath.
But Evelyn is flummoxed about this goof. She has a German mother and an Indian father. Since her parents have nothing to do with films, she wonders how this confusion began.
Evelyn has made a mark in the film industry with key roles in superhits like David Dhavan’s Main Tera Hero starring Varun Dhawan, Rohan Sippy’s Nautanki Saala with Ayushmann Khurrana, and Divya Khosla Kumar’s Yaariyan, in which her sensuous bikini song Sunny Sunny with music superstar Yo Yo Honey Singh has been a blockbuster. She is popular for playing the vivacious Lara in Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani alongside Ranbir Kapoor, under Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Productions.
