Bollywood star who gave up stardom for a quiet life in rural Queensland with her Aussie husband says the move was ‘the best thing’ she ever did – but admits ‘I miss the glamour sometimes’

Actress and model Evelyn Sharma swapped the glitz and glamour of Bollywood for life in the rural town of Chinchilla, Queensland, with her Australian dentist husband.

And the 35-year-old movie star reflected on the life-changing move during an interview with A Current Affair over the weekend.

German-born Evelyn said that despite the relocation being ‘the best thing’ she ever did, she does sometimes miss ‘the glamorous life’.

‘The glamorous life, I do miss it sometimes, the red carpet and getting dressed up in beautiful gowns and sarees,’ Evelyn said. 

‘It’s been like a tornado, a whirlwind in my life. It’s changed so much.’

However, she said moving to Australia had been the ‘best thing’ for her family.

Evelyn lives in Chinchilla, a rural town in the Western Downs Region, after her dental surgeon husband bought the local practice.

‘In the beginning it felt like a mental detox, being in Chinchilla in the country, away from 22 million people in one city,’ she told The Courier Mail.

‘That constant noise that you have around yourself but also being conscious of paparazzi, that was just my everyday life.’

‘At some point here I started getting very uncomfortable if I saw phones pointing at me, but then I was like, they don’t know who I am, they’re not taking my picture, and it became really relaxing, and I felt so safe.’ 

Evelyn married husband Tushaan Bhindi in May last year and they welcomed their daughter in December.

But she said the town has been very supportive and has been looking after her and her family.
