The Indian entertainment industry is full of talented actors. And those who are able to make it to bigger entertainment industries like Hollywood are certainly considered to be more superior. At the present, the two prominent Bollywood actresses who have made it big in Hollywood are Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone. So when there is a buzz about an Indian actress bagging a role in Hollywood, the most expected names are of these two.
However, as per reports doing rounds in the media, they did not happen to be the choice of the Hollywood filmmaker Patty Jenkins. Instead, the role was bagged by a relatively new actress.
The actress who was reportedly chosen for a prominent role in ‘Wonder Woman 84’ was Soundarya Sharma. It was believed that the actress has been selected for the pivotal role but details about her character are still being kept under the wraps.
Soundarya Sharma made her debut into films in 2015 with ‘Meeruthiya Gangsters’ and gained fame after doing ‘Ranchi Diaries’ in 2017. A report by The Hindu states that the actress will join the team of ‘Wonder Woman 84’ in October this year and quotes her feeling excited about the new opportunity. The portal quotes the actress telling IANS:
“This I can say is a ‘dream coming true’ situation. It’s exhilarating to be a part of such a larger than life character film where you get to play your dream role. I have always dreamt of playing such a character and idolized it.”
However, as per a more recent report by The Times of India, Soundarya Sharma admitted having gone to the USA for a few auditions including that for ‘Wonder Woman 84’. But she rubbished all the reports claiming that she will play the Superwoman in the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ sequel. She said:
“I did go to New York a couple of months back and gave auditions for four films, one of which was ‘Wonder Woman’. After that, I haven’t heard anything. When I read reports that I have apparently been finalized for a role in ‘Wonder Woman’, I was amazed, shocked and confused! I would be happier if I would get to work in my favorite film, but nothing has been finalized yet.”
The Delhi-based actress has been flooded with messages from friends and relatives ever since the rumor spread. Soundarya Sharma said:
“Everyone has been asking me why I kept it under wraps and I have been telling people that there is nothing to share yet. But I am not complaining. After all, who wouldn’t want to be associated with a film like ‘Wonder Woman’.”

Soundarya Sharma also denied giving any statement such as “This I can say is a ‘dream coming true’ situation” to any media house. She further said:
“I have not spoken to anyone on this. I have said it in multiple interviews in the past that if there is one film that I would want to work in, it is ‘Wonder Woman’. I am a huge fan of superhero films and would love to play a part played by Gal Gadot. In September last year, I even posted my picture in Wonder Woman costume on Instagram and wrote that I’ve a secret to share and I am the real Wonder Woman, but it was all for fun. I didn’t even know then that I would be going to New York for auditions. I think people just connected the dots and have come up with a conclusion of their own. On my part, I can just wish this be true. I should just hope that I have some real news to share on this.”
