Davon model Zoe Szypillo made debut in a Bollywood love triangle “Sajna Ve Sajana“, which premiered in London on Friday.
Zoe, 23, who fought off cancer seven years ago, went on to build a successful modeling career, gracing the pages of FHM, Maxim, US magazines American Curves and Stuff, the Czech version of Esquire and woman’s astrology magazine Predictions.
She plays one of the two female leads, in a British-Punjabi musical, with Bally Sagoo as the lead hero.. who also happens to make his debut with this movie.
The story is about a spoiled grandson of a multi millionaire (played by Bally) who wants to become a famous musician and marry his girlfriend, played by Zoe.
Zoe, from St Thomas, went to the casting in London in July 2005 and was offered the part.
She has since been offered a part in another Bollywood film, on the back of this one, directed by an American and an Indian.
“I am really excited,” she said. “Bollywood films are all about the music and fans buy the CDs, and I know the soundtrack to this film is fantastic.
I am hoping it will lead to other things. India’s a great place. I would love to do more films there.
Bollywood is the biggest film industry in the world and I hope this will raise my profile.”
Zoe also models for surf wear brand Rurik and has recently become the face of online fashion brand Miss Butterfly.
