The average movie going American who is not of Middle Eastern or Indo-Pak decent has no clue who SRK or Aishwarya or Amitabh Bachchan are. The closest they've come to anything Bollywood has been Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire, and Bend It Like Beckham a few years ago. But quite a few popular American TV shows have either Indian or American-Indian actors. So Americans are very accepting of artists of Indian decent or any other background. But the material presented to them has to be relatable to them. Bollywood really isn't.

She's not there to break stereotypes, she's there to do some work and hopefully get more Indian women their own prime time shows. I mean Scandal is doing so well and ABC wants to diversify their demographic and viewership. 

I want her to make it b/c there's so many that want to pull her down for no reason. Criticizing her accent, her show, her work is absolutely fine...but there's some that are simply envious for no good reason.

Ohh, men here cannot resist looks like her . I hope she does . :) Love love Scandal. It's one of the best product of ABC right now.

I want her to make it big too. For me, she just does sound like here , that's all. I think she will get better with it as time passes by. I hope the show is success and good luck to her as I have always said. B/c people have nothing better to do.


Scandal's really boring & Olivia Pope is a very annoying character, Kerry Washington is good but not as good as she's made out to be. Quite beautiful though & Pope's style is AHMAZING! 

From the show , Mellie is a darn,darn good character!!! So vicious, yet so vulnerable. Bellamy Young is a very very good actor! 

Well.. I've only a few words for you: HTGAWM. Coliver. Connor Walsh= JACK FALAHEE!!!!! <3

Yeah, it can be boring and annoying, esp. Olivia Pope. Still, i love it. :) LOLConfession, have to yet catch up with the new season. I will try soon.:)

Ohh, Mellie, she portrays her character very well. 

I know, stop rubbing it on me so many times. I will watch few episodes this week ,ok meri Ma.  LOL

It's not even about the accent. She looks COMPLETELY out of place with her melodramatic bollywood acting. Just look at the scene where she is walking to the bomb site..she is acting as if she catwalking on a ramp. And all the crying and "aaa and the sky falls'' crap is unbearable. 
I think she would've been better off in a show where there wasn't too emphasis on her being american and trying to save 'her' country.

Yes yes yes yes!!!! The way Pope could've been played, there would've been actual empowerment for the character but she's good- Just not as good as she's made out to be is all am saying. The only thing fantastic about her is her dressing sense. LOL When people go on & on about Pope, I scratch my head & wonder why b/c she over-acts & has a creepy stare, I've watched 2 seasons b/c I was made to & I never understood the hype. It's an immensely popular show but I never understood the appeal. But Mellie. Oh man Mellie. I would be sooo scared of her!!!! OMG. There's such vulnerability, strength, grace, passion & a certain sort of evil she has that really really scares me yet fascinates me. I love that woman!!! She ain't my sort of pal- LOL But I love her for how flawed, real yet dramatic she is. There are layers that Bellamy Young brings to Mellie that are pretty awesome to watch. A lesser actress would've ruined Mellie or worse, made her a caricature. LOL On that whole darn show, it's Bellamy & Portia D'Rossi (the few clips I watched of her) that stand out & blink neon orange b/c the rest are strictly above average. 


Bellamy should get awards & I just want Mellie to be happy, throw pseudo-survivors Pope & Fitz into a cabin with the keys outside, murder her FIL, migrate to Paris & live on a vineyard bungalow. Her nerves desperately require that. LOL  LOL

If you haven't, you HAVE to watch Viola Davis on HTGAWM. Meryl Streep says she's better than her. She is. 

I've nothing more to say.

I'm a long time Shona lover...Grey's Anatomy & Mer-Der and all of that so already have seen HTGAWM :) ...Viola is amazing as Annalise Keating but damn I was not expecting that season finale LOL

Yep...Bellamy plays Mellie so well. Initially Mellie was just the wife who ignored "poor" Fitz but really there are so many layers to her! And I just love how Bellamy emotes with her facial expressions. Especially when Mellie is breaking down...there is something so raw about it. 

Olivia is lame...and I'm pretty much done with her Papa Pope drama. Portia has been phenomenal though! Especially when she walks...that lady's got some swagger lol
