While Hindi movie buffs await the release of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan's Bollywood debut "Khoobsurat", his "Zindagi Gulzar Hai" co-star Sanam Saeed says "maybe" she would also agree to a film in India if a story interests her enough.

The two actors managed to garner a huge fan following with their performance in Pakistani show "Zindagi Gulzar Hai", which was beamed on channel Zindagi - Jodey Dilon Ko, a first-of-its-kind initiative showcasing entertainment and content from that side of the border here.

Fawad's heightened popularity amongst the desi crowd was there for all to see on his recent visit when he came to the country to promote his Sonam Kapoor-starrer "Khoobsurat".

Will Sanam agree to a Bollywood project if offered, now that she enjoys a decent fanbase?

"Maybe, if a story appeals to me and with some content that helps in bridging the gap (between the countries)," Sanam told IANS over phone from Karachi.

She does not wish to hunt for work here.

"I'd like to make space (in Bollywood) without an agent. I want my sheer work to to speak for my talent and it will be quite an achievement, I believe, if producers and directors look at my work and offer me something. I think for an actor, it will always be a great feeling," Sanam, 29, said.

The multi-faceted talent, who has been a model, video jockey, theatre artist, stand-up comedian and singer apart from being a TV and film actress, was born in Britain and shifted to Karachi with her family when she was six. She admits doing strong female-oriented parts attract her.

Even her choice of favourite Hindi film actresses include names like Shabana Azmi, Tabu and Vidya Balan, whose body of work boasts of bold and high on content projects.

"I like their style, it's more serious and organic as compared to actors are more into beauty and glamour," said the actress, who admits she is as "unromantic" in real life as her character Kashaf was in "Zindagi Gulzar Hai".
