Whatever you think about the Twilight franchise and its most recent installation, there’s no denying the movie and its young stars are phenomenally hot — Breaking Dawn 2 literally sucked the box office dry, earning US$141.3 million on its opening weekend.

Now it seems that Kristen Stewart, better known as the vampire wannabe Bella Swan, is ready to sink her teeth into a new role—Bollywood heroine.

According to NDTV, Stewart said in a statement she would be interested in working on a Bollywood film, particularly one with Hrithik Roshan. “If someone offers me a good script, I would love to work in a Bollywood film,” said Stewart. “I would love to work with Hrithik Roshan. He is such a wonderful actor and so good-looking.”

She went on to say that if she had a son she hopes he would look like Roshan, albeit with the eyes of real-life boyfriend and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.

Although pouting, petulant Bella Swan is hardly a noteworthy character, and plenty of people had written the ‘trampire’ off after the debacle with Huntsman director Rupert Sanders (who’s indiscretion didn’t attract half as much attention), it seems Stewart is here to stay — at least for now.

About two years ago, there was some Bollywood buzz that filmmaker Shekhar Kapur planned to cast Stewart opposite Roshan in a film entitled Paani (Water), a thriller centered on the global water crisis. The project was announced at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, but no progress has been announced since then.

If Kapur really has his heart set on working with Stewart, this might be his big chance. The conclusion of the Twilight saga means the 22-year-old L.A. native is looking for work.

Although some feel the actress has yet to prove her mettle, it would be interesting to see what she brings to Bollywood. And with the immense success of Twilight behind her, Stewart’s certain to attract oodles of attention, wherever she goes.
