Best known as ‘Lara’ in Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, alongside Ranbir Kapoor, under Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Productions, Evelyn Sharma played a sexy ditz who wraps a most charming Ranbir around her little finger and stunned the audience with her sensuous performance of hit song Ooh La La. The film is blockbuster, having broken records at the box-office last year and Evelyn is on cloud nine, marking YJHD as her second hit movie after Rohan Sippy’s Nautanki Saala opposite Ayushman Khurrana only a few weeks earlier!

Currently the 23-year-old half-German half-Indian supermodel-turned-actress is busy promoting her next film, T-Series’  Yaariyan, where she will be romancing Humse Hai Life teen heart-throb Himansh Kohli. She plays an angelic dream girl and will be seen donning a bikini for the first time in the sexy beach song Sunny Sunny with superstar Yo Yo Honey Singh for this fresh college movie, which happens to be the directorial debut of Super Cassettes icon Bhushan Kumar’s enterprising wife Divya Khosla Kumar.

The two hit movies old actress will celebrate Yaariyan as her fifth release in one year on January 10, 2014 and has already been signed for more projects such as David Dhawan’s multi-starrer Main Tera Hero with Varun Dhawan, Anupam Kher, Illeana D’Cruz and more; as well as Neeraj Pathak’s Bhaiyyaji Superhit with Sunny Deol and opposite Arshad Warsi.

Taking a strong stand in the Bollywood industry and shooting straight into the Times of India’s Most Desirable List, Evelyn has fast emerged a sought-after fashion icon for events, brands and designers. The names go from designers Nishka Lulla, Rocky S, Falguni & Shane Peacock and Wendell Rodricks to rock bands like Euphoria and jewelry brands like Gehna who have longed for the beauty to be their muse. Besides her endorsements such as Parachute Advansed, Biba, Anandam World City or innerwear brand Bodycare Creations, the rising star was recently signed as the new face for Blenders Pride, and is seen opposite Priyanka Chopra on the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour hoardings.

As if this isn’t enough, Evelyn is also actively involved in supporting various causes, such as children charities, animal rescue, clean environment and breast cancer awareness. In her spare time, the multifaceted actress makes music, loves dancing and trains in kickboxing. So you see, this girl literally kicks ass! Lol.

Itsy bitsy teenie weenie, Evelyn shines in pink bikini!

Critical reviews not withstanding, Evelyn Sharma has got on to a roaring start this year with Divya Khosla Kumar’s Yaariyan. Her pink-bikini number Sunny Sunny with Yo Yo Singh is a rage at discotheques and parties. Of course, the actress is elated.

The song is a blockbuster in India, but Evelyn couldn’t believe her ears, when she had a fan drool over her on the streets of Germany. On a visit to her hometown, the half-German half-Indian Evelyn sparkled with a broad smile, when a chap on the road started trailing her and singing her Yaariyan number Sunny Sunny.

While she blushed and walked away, she regrets not chatting with him. “He would surely have been a Bollywood-loving NRI since he was singing fluently in Hindi,” she says with a twinkle still in her eyes. “It was out of the blue and totally flattering.”

Moreover, Evelyn realized how big a hit the number has emerged with teens. “I get a high as I see its zooming popularity,” she admits.

 

Last year, the actress made a mark with key roles in hits like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with Ranbir Kapoor and Nautanki Saala with Ayushmann Khurrana. Then a month ago, she hit fashion headlines with a sensuous short film called In Frost on the Fashion TV website.

Recently, Evelyn also found herself in the midst of a political controversy after she performed for the Saifai Mahotsav festival in Etawah district, Uttar Pradesh. The presence of political heavyweights like Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, just a few days after the Muzaffarnagar riots in the state, compounded the situation.

It drew sharp reactions from other politicos including the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) state president Laxmikant Bajpai, Congress vice-president and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati, as the actress waited it out helplessly.
