Mumbai, July 15 IANS | 3 months ago

Former Indian beauty queen Parvathy Omanakuttan, who will soon be seen in "Pizza", says the Miss India platformn is no longer a stepping stone for models to enter filmdom.

Parvathy was crowned Miss India in 2008.

Asked if she chose to enter the Miss India contest to eventually be part of movies, she said: "Miss India is no longer a pathway to films. It's no longer a formula that you get into Miss India, and then into acting."

Many believe models can't act, but Parvathy says acting is not something that can be taught.

"It's very easy for people to write that 'She does not know how to act'. But I think acting is something you cannot teach; you cannot inject someone with acting skills. There are lot of people who belong to film background, but are not as good as their ancestors and some are exceptionally good," she said.

Her new movie "Pizza" is a horror film, and Parvathy says Hindi cinema does not have too many horror films.

"I personally love watching horror films, but unfortunately, Hindi does not have too many horror film, not many experiments are done with this genre. The one Hindi film that really scared me is 'Raat' (1992). The technical aspect of that film was very sound at that point of time and with 'Pizza' we are going to bring that level up with 3D and VFX," she said.

Directed by Akshay Akkineni and produced by Bejoy Nambiar, "Pizza" features Akshay Oberoi as the male lead.
