Amanda Holden wants Bollywood role

Amanda Holden wants to star in a Bollywood movie.

The 44-year-old blonde is a huge fan of the Hindi language films - India's biggest movie export - and says staring in one is one of her last remaining ambitions.

During her impressive career, Amanda has appeared in several TV shows - including 'Wild at Heart' and 'Cutting It' - acted on the stage in numerous musicals and is currently a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' and a co-presenter on 'This Morning' but she is yet to add a Bollywood project to her CV.

Discussing Ed Sheeran's impending Bollywood role on 'This Morning', Amanda said: "I'm so jealous, it would be so good. It's one of the few ambitions I've got left."

When her co-host Philip Schofield scoffed at either of them ever getting a casting call, she replied: "Why not? It's a bigger industry than Hollywood."

Ed was offered a part in 'Happy New Year 2' - the sequel to 2014 Indian action comedy 'Happy New Year' - by director Farah Khan when the pair attended a party at the home of Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan. The musician went to the bash following his sold-out concert in Mumbai.

Khan said: "It was very gracious of Abhishek to let me bring Ed to his home. Not only did Ed hit it off with Abhishek, but before I left they both decided that Ed would act in 'Happy New Year 2'."
