  Rachel Shelley Friday 10 August 2001  
Rachel Shelley is the first British actress to make it big in a Bollywood film.

Since Rachel took a leading role in the box office hit Lagaan - a saga which combines the unlikely themes of cricket and tax - she's become an idol of Indian cinema with millions of fans.
The film was also a surprise hit in Britain - making it into the top ten at box offices around the country.
She joins Martha to explain how she landed the role and what it was like to sing and dance Bollywood style.
