Australian beauty with roots in India open to acting in Bollywood

Australian beauty with roots in India open to acting in B'wood Sydney, Sabrina Houssami, the beauty queen with roots in India who will represent Australia in the Miss World contest, says she is open to acting in Bollywood films.

The first person of non-Australian parentage to win the Miss Australia title last month, 19-year-old Sabrina was born to an Indian mother and a Lebanese father.

Sabrina, who supports a charity called Astara Angels that works with children in Rishikesh, said she might consider offers from Bollywood although this will be only "for a short while." Her long term goal is television journalism.

"My community has been getting a bad rap from the media in recent times, and I want to do my bit to present the real picture," she said in an interview to a local daily here.

She says she will promote a diverse and multicultural look for Australia when she competes for the Miss World title in Poland in September.

"I think the advantages for me in this country is I have adopted some western values and being a Muslim I have eastern values too," the Sydney university student said, adding "as long as I believe in the right things and treat others well... it shouldn't matter what religion I am." Asked about her chances of winning the Miss World crown, she says she might get into the top ten. "Perhaps the world is not yet ready for someone as multicultural as me," Sabrina told the IndiaLink newspaper.
