We feel proud to watch Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone making in Big in Hollywood. Whenever we watch them share screen space with Hollywood biggies or when we watch them grace the red carpet in the award nights in the West, the fan inside us feels happy to see them climb heights of success, isn't it?
But do you know that the movie buffs in the West also feel happy when superstars of the entertainment industry there, get a chance to make a debut in Bollywood? FYI, just the way we get fascinated by watching Hollywood films, similarly the colours, vibrancy, emotions, songs and dance in our films attract the Firangi Stars too. And when they get a chance to get featured in a Bollywood film, they don't let the opportunity go away.
So, we are here with a list of all such actors and actresses from the West, who won million hearts when they acted in Hindi films. I won't exaggerate if I say that at times these Firangi Stars even took away the limelight from the Bollywood stars they shared the screen with.
