She is just 19 but she already has much to her credit.
In 2009, at the age of 15, she clinched the Miss Teen India crown. Two years later, she won two titles - Miss Asian Supermodel and Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International. In 2012, she bagged the Miss Universe India title but was later dethroned because she didn't meet the age requirement. Nevertheless, she is raring to go.
The winner of several beauty pageants is also a popular name in the ad world. Now, she has a three-film contract with director Anil Sharma. Urvashi says she wants to be recognised for her acting skills rather than stardom.
"I don‚Euroôt want people to treat me like a star or call me one. I want to be an artist...an actor who acts really well,‚EuroĚ Urvashi told IANS.
True to being an actor, she doesn‚Euroôt mind playing the love interest of actor Sunny Deol who is over 35 years older to her. In ‚EuroúSingh Saab The Great‚EuroĚ, her character name is Mini. Sunny will be seen fighting for her in the action love story.
‚EuroúI am being a professional. Age is just a number. When you‚Euroôll watch the movie you‚Euroôll see great chemistry. My character is lovable. I am playing a damsel in distress and he (Sunny) fights for me, so it special,‚EuroĚ said Urvashi, who would like to work with the Khans (Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir) of Bollywood someday.
The model, who walked as a showstopper for designer duo Niket and Jainee Friday during the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week here, is also excited about a song picturised on her as it reminds her of actress Sridevi.
‚EuroúOne of the songs is totally my song. It ‚EuroėMehandi lagwaje‚Euroô. It very special because I‚Euroôve danced on it and is quite similar to what Sridevi did in ‚EuroėMere hathon main nau nau chudiya hai‚Euroô,‚EuroĚ she said.
Bound by contract, Urvashi can‚Euroôt sign any other film before the movie directed by Sharma releases Nov 22. But after that, she is keen to take up different film assignments.
