Though YouTube sensation Lilly Singh is based out of Los Angeles, the Indian-Canadian star enjoys a fan base globally, especially in India. And now, while Lilly has finally transited from the Internet to become the first woman of colour to host her own TV show, A Little Late With Lilly Singh, she has been hounded with questions of making her Bollywood debut.
And now Lilly’s fans have a reason to rejoice as Lilly says she absolutely does not mind making a Bollywood debut soon but there is a catch to it. Speaking to Hindustan Times, Lilly has been quoted saying, “Because I haven’t been offered any roles till date. Can you believe it? I would love that. My Hindi is not that great, and if they (filmmakers) are willing to accommodate that, I am all for that.”
For Lilly, during her growing up years, India was a place that she loved because her parents hailed from the country. But eventually, as she grew up Lilly has revealed her perception about India and its people dramatically changed. “When I started my career, it became a lot more meaningful. Indians have been my biggest support system. They welcome me home. They cheer me on when I start any new endeavour. It’s more meaningful to me than when I was younger.”
For those living under the rock, Lilly Singh has made a fortune for herself by writing, directing and acting in her hugely loved YouTube channel ‘Superwoman’. The 31-year-old also has a book to her name titled ‘How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life’
