I am in Bollywood because of Shahrukh Khan – Elnaaz Norouzi

Sacred Games popularity has spread like wild fire. Everyone is talking about it. Those who are not aware, it’s a series on Netflix. I had seen Vikram Chandra’s book with the same name on a bookstore’s shelf. But never realized that Netflix had created a series based on that novel. Moreover, I took the opportunity of a month’s free subscription on Netflix. Netflix subscription process includes registering on the site using either credit card details or bank account details. I used my saving account details to subscribe to Netflix. I saw the whole season over the weekend. The story is gripping but very gory and full of expletives. Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s acting was mind-blowing. But a new comer also grabbed a lot of attention. She is none other than Elnaaz Norouzi.

Iranian beauty Elnaaz Norouzi shot to fame with the recent Netflix series, Sacred Games. She had worked with Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and other big league actors in various commercials. But the recognition in the mainstream Bollywood came from her role as Zoya Mirza in the Sacred Games. She said that she was so charmed by Shahrukh Khan movies that she decided to join Bollywood.

“Iranians love India and Bollywood. But as I grew up, my relationship with Bollywood became more and more special as my mom and I would watch at least one Bollywood film every week,” quips Elnaaz.

Elnaaz mentioned that she was not the only one enamored by Shahrukh Khan. Her parents are a diehard fan of Bollywood movies. Her father would buy her loads of Bollywood film DVDs and music album in her childhood.  She enjoyed the romance, the music and the larger than life stories depicted in the Indian movies. “I knew so many hit songs by heart, even without understanding the lyrics back then,” she added. Elnaaz has worked with Shahrukh Khan in two commercials till now. “It was indeed a dream come true,” beams the Sacred Games star.

She put in efforts to perfect her Hindi and Urdu diction and has worked in a few Pakistani movies as well. Elnaaz dubbed all her dialogues in Sacred Games. She is happy that she got an opportunity to work with the established stars like Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte, etc. The series have been directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.
