THE next time you watch a Bollywood movie, don't be surprised if you see Carramar's Maria Tran.
The 29-year-old was selected as a finalist in this year's multicultural DreamGirl pageant.
The winner will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Bollywood (Mumbai, India) and meet with a series of directors, producers and actors.
Miss Tran is among 12 women selected as finalists for their talent and cultural awareness.
The independent film-maker and psychology graduate said she entered the pageant because of her passion in film-making and martial arts.
"I want to break down the stereotypes of women in the film industry," she said.
"Women can be strong and be directors of action films, too."
Ms Tran locally produced the action comedy short film Hit Girls, which was made in Fairfield and featured international Hong Kong actress Juju Chan, who won two awards at the Action On Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2013.
Ms Tran was recently elected vice-president for the Vietnamese Community in Australia (External Affairs), and is part of Australia's largest Vietnamese martial arts school, Dong Tam in Fairfield.
Early this year, Ms Tran also had ABC TV's Maximum Choppage filmed in Cabramatta.
Her role included being a stunt girl, associate producer and an extras casting co-ordinator.
"I believe DreamGirls is potentially an opportunity for me and my community to reach out internationally and to Bollywood," Ms Tran said.
"It's a dream platform to work there one day."
The national finals of this year's DreamGirl pageant will be held at the Sydney Baha'i Centre in Silverwater on August 2.
