Looking forward to have a career in Bollywood: Tara Popowich
New Delhi: Canadian dancer Tara Jean Popowich, who is entering Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa as a wild-card contestant, says she would love to star opposite Shah Rukh Khan in a Bollywood movie.
The 20-year-old winner of `So You Think You Can Dance Canada` season 2, wants to follow on the footsteps of her friend Lauren Gottlieb, who was the runner-up of `Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6` and acted in dance film `ABCD`.
"I would love to act in Hindi films. I will stay here after my stint on `Jhalak...` is over and will try for Bollywood," Tara told reporters.
The contemporary dancer, who wants to make India her home now, said she is fond of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and would love to act opposite him.
Meanwhile, she is looking forward to her innings on the dance reality show, judged by Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo D`Souza.
"I came here two-and-a half months ago to teach students of Shiamak Davar and one day decided I will continue my stay only if I get my dream job and `Jhalak...` happened. It is a dream for me, getting a chance to dance every week. I love it. All the judges and the co-contestants are nice and amazing," she said.
Praising Bollywood dancing diva Dixit, Tara said, "It is amazing how she is insanely beautiful and so warm. I think it`s an honour to dance in front of her. I knew about her from before through internet and knew she is a big Bollywood superstar," she said.
Tara, who has been to lot of temples across the country, said she loves the spirituality here. "I saw in temples, how strongly people believe in God, I think that`s the best thing about India," she said.
The dancer made her first trip to India four years ago as part of the teaching staff at Shiamak`s institute..
"On my first visit I visited many cities and I particularly loved being in the capital and enjoyed the food there," Tara said.
