Sophia Ali – Upcoming star on lead role in US indie ‘India Sweets and Spices’ playing the smart, no bs, Alia Kapur in social comedy drama… (video)

UPCOMING star Sophia Ali talks to about her lead role in the indie feature, ‘India Sweets and Spices’ and tells us how pathbreaking and refreshing it was to play Alia Kapur.
Her character is smart, headstrong and not averse to romance either – the film has an attractive young cast and there is a romantic element to the film, which is also extremely perceptive on gender, class and status in South Asian communities in the US, and reflects generational shifts elsewhere too.
Ali also talks about making her own way into acting and what you need to succeed and her shifting thoughts on the issue of representation.
There is a review of the film here –
The film is currently out in cinemas in the UK…
