Elli AvrRam

Bollywood actor of Swedish-Greek origin, Elli AvrRam made her debut in Bollywood with 'Mickey Virus' where she played the character of Kamayani George. She followed it up with 'Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon' opposite Kapil Sharma. She also made a special appearance in 'Naam Shabana' and did a special song in 'Poster Boys'.
She was a contestant in 'Bigg Boss 7' and made a guest appearance in 'Bigg Boss 8'. She is currently hosting the 'Great Indian Laughter Challenge' and is working on a Tamil-Kannada bilingual project which is the remake of 'Queen'.

Cinema

Akshay Kumar

"I have always admired the work of Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra. I think Akshay Kumar's disciplined lifestyle and way of life is something for the younger generation to follow and emulate. I have worked with him and I like the way he remains calm and positive even in the most tense situations. I read somewhere that he advocates the 'early to bed, early to rise' policy and I believe that it is this that made him a successful person. Priyanka Chopra has taken her work to another level. She has proved that nothing is impossible to achieve."

Music

'Kiss'


"As a teenager, I was a hard-core fan of the American band 'Kiss'. Their music leans heavily towards metallic and rock, and I knew almost all their songs by heart. I once remember dressing up like the drummer of the band. The make up and the costume matched perfectly. I have also grown up listening to my father Jannis Avramidis' music. His compositions and music have always had a calming effect on me."

Travel

Kefalonia

"I was 15 years when I first visited Kefalonia, a small island west of mainland Greece. I wish to go there again because I was enchanted by what I saw. You have to climb down 500 steps to reach the beach at Kefalonia. The entire beach was covered with white round stones and I still remember playing with those stones. I also love everything about Greece because that is where I was born and raised for the most part of my life."

Author

Jostein Gaarder

"I was only 13 years old when my father gifted me 'Sophie's World' by Jostein Gaarder. It is my favourite book till date. It has a bit of philosophy, psychology and spirituality. It is a little heavy for a teenager but I was deeply influenced by what the author had highlighted in the various sections of the book. There are several thought-provoking parts in the book and I soon began relating it to everyday existence. I would say that I literally turned a thinker after reading that book."

Food

'Pani puri'

"I am addicted to 'Pani puri' and I can eat it at any time. I have close family friends who make delicious 'Pani puri' and whenever I crave for it, I call them up and ask them to make it for me. I also like a special Greek fish preparation called 'Tsipoura'. My mother makes this dish for me whenever I go home. It is grilled fish with baked potatoes. And I love anything that my mother cooks because I miss her food."

Inspiration

Maria Marina

"I have been influenced by my mother Maria Marina. Her positive spirit, generosity and kindness towards others has inspired me a great deal. I have never seen her get angry or raise her voice against anybody. She has always handled any stressful situation in a calm way. I have tried to emulate her positive spirit and adopt her way of life."
