Brinda Parekh, who is hoping her vampy negative role in London Dreams will finally attract for her the attention she deserves, is a self-confessed gadget freak. From mobile phones to home cinema systems, she has them all. “Gadgets are my biggest passion besides acting,” she says, “My friends sometimes think I am little crazy with the amount I shelve out for getting myself the best technology that hits the market.”
Since making her Bollywood debut in Corporate, Brinda has been building a reputation for herself in Kollywood, including playing the role of Mona in Pokkiri, the movie that saw a remake in Salman Khan’s Wanted. She’s currently working on the Kannada movie Thipparahalli Tharlegalu.
Animal-loving Brinda is often compared in looks to Bipasha Basu. How does she feel about that? “It feels nice because I think Bipasha is extremely talented and very good looking,” she says, “I consider her as my mentor. It will take me a very long time to get to where she is.”
