Elli Avram - another foreign import in Bollywood has become a household name in India, thanks to the reality show 'Bigg Boss 7'.
Debuting in ‘Mickey Virus’, opposite Manish Paul, the 22-year-old half-Greek-half-Swedish beauty entered the show before the release of her movie.
But entering the reality show might prove to be more fruitful for her than ‘Mickey Virus’.
Here's why - Elli Avram is building a good rapport with host and Bollywood heavyweight Salman Khan. The actor has been paying special attention to her on the television reality show.
And the actress is going all the way to please the star by learning how to cook Indian food, singing for him and also performing a special dance number.
This week the "Weekend Ka Wow" episode in Bigg Boss was indeed a wow moment for the 'Ek Tha Tiger' actor.
All dressed in ethnic attire Bigg Boss house got into the festive mood and celebrated Diwali. They had a guest in actor Ranveer Singh who came to promote his movie 'Ramleela'.
Finally, Salman surprises everybody by entering in the house with plenty of sweets and fireworks for the housemates.
After the veneration, the contestants put up a quick talent show to entertain their guest. Tanisha, Sangram and Andy presented a skit while Sofia Hayat and Armaan Kohli performed a duet.
But the limelight of the evening was Gauahar Khan and Elli Avram's special dance number.
Though the two beauties looked stunning and danced their heart out but it looks like Salman was more impressed by Elli's performance.
All throughout the dance Salman could not take his eyes of the foreign beauty.
He was stunned with the dance performance and showered praises.
Looks like after Katrina Kaif, Zarine Khan, Sana Khan, its Elli Avram's turn to be mentored by Salman.
From hinting that he would consider her for a film later, to suspecting that other inmates are jealous of her for she gets his attention, the superstar seems to have left no stone unturned to express his fondness for Elli.
The Swedish actress, too, has been enjoying the attention.
Salman also screened a special video of Elli's father on his birthday and asking her to learn cooking. Her parents were flown down to Mumbai to thank Salman in person.
Earlier when Elli delivered a dialogue in Hindi “Main tumhare liye kuch bhi karne ko tayyar hoon” (I can do anything for you), Salman quickly said Elli reminds him of a younger Katrina Kaif.
It looks like there is a lot in store for her after she comes out of the Bigg Boss 7 house. It won’t come as a surprise if we hear that Elli Avram is paired opposite Salman Khan in an upcoming film. Elli too admitted that she would like to work with Salman.
