She plays alongside Sendhil Ramamurthy on the hit NBC show Heroes , and soon Ali Larter (Legally Blonde, Varsity Blues) will be coming to a theater near you.

An Indian theater, that is.

Larter, 30, has finished filming the romantic comedy Marigold. The movie, about an American actress who becomes interested in Bollywood, also stars Salman Khan.

“Marigold was my way of bridging the gap between Indian and American cinema” says director Willard Carroll who was first exposed to Bollywood during a trip to Chennai four years ago.

“I returned to the US and made people, in groups of 20, watch films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Dil Chahta Hai and Hum Saath Saath Hain at my home,” says Carroll. “I was obsessed with the idea of introducing Bollywood to a wider audience.”

Marigold has been screened several times (receiving lukewarm reviews). Anyone seen it yet?
