According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, more than one quarter (27.6 per cent) of the 25.4 million people in the country on census night 2021 were born overseas. Other than England, the most common origin of foreign-born Australians was India. Just under a million (976,000) people identified as having Indian ancestry.

But as an aspiring performer just starting out, Sharda felt there was little chance of someone of her heritage or appearance finding a home on screen in Australia.

“Back then we were still looking at storytelling for migrants in very stereotyped fashions,” she says. “The idea that we were Australian first hadn’t quite seeped into the mindset of those who were in charge of culture making.”

Things have changed in recent years, but there’s still a lot to be done, she insists.

“It’s been a difficult run, in terms of getting to a place where we accept we need to diversify that storytelling and how we need to include people behind the scenes, in making sure that those stories get up,” she says. “So I think being a part of the strategic team, with an eye on that aspect, is a real honour.”
