Pallavi Sharda 'I find it really tough to speak up'
Play • 39 min

Indian Australian actor and dancer, Pallavi Sharda is an international film star, first making a mark in Bollywood and now in Hollywood. She's starring in Wedding Season on Netflix, where she's the first South Asian woman to lead a mainstream studio romcom film.

In this episode Pallavi and Jess discuss her passion for making space for actors of color, growing up as a migrant child in Australia, and the past trauma of being quietened. Pallavi is passionate about building empathy and breaking down bridges, and she also happens to be Jess’s husbands hall pass.

The Jess Rowe Big Talk Show acknowledges the Gadigal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we recorded this podcast, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders peoples here today.
