THE sun, sea and sand have fascinated a model-turned-actress.
Aparna Jadhav, 23, said she loved the scenery in Fiji, especially the sea and the beaches.
She is in the country for the shooting of the Bollywood movie Supermodel, which is her first film.
"I came to Fiji on April 24 with the other cast and crew members and I've visited some places, including Suva," she said.
"Fiji is a very nice place and I love Fiji, especially the sea here and the beaches here.
"People here are very polite, caring, soft-hearted and they are always ready to help in whatever things we do."
Jadhav said she had also noticed Fijians were very protective, saying she was enjoying her stay in such an environment.
She has not tried any Fijian food yet unlike other members.
"We have a cook from India who's preparing our meals and snacks but I will surely try some Fijian food before I return to India," she said.
Jadhav is a supporting actress in the movie and plays the role of the lead actor Ashmit Patel's secretary.
She decided to enter the film industry because "it's a different life altogether".
"Apart from being a model, I'm a classical dancer and I do Bharatnatyam (South Indian classical dance).
"I've modelled for sari and some other things in India and I did a video song Love in Kashmir before coming into the film industry."
Jadhav said she would start shooting for a Marathi movie, in which she plays the lead female role, when she returns to India.
She believes the sky is the limit as far as her acting career is concerned.
