Karishma Tanna, who has often been seen on the small screen, is finally making her way into Bollywood. Tanna will be seen sharing screen space with Vivek Oberoi in Indra Kumar’s Grand Masti, which is a sequel to the hit film 2004 Masti.

Standing at 5 feet 8 inches, Karishma happens to be almost as tall as her co-star Vivek Oberoi. And that we hear is the reason why she has had to chuck wearing heels in the film.
Vivek who is barely two inches taller than her (5 feet 10inches) has banned her from sporting the heeled look. This, because he feels he will look shorter than Karishma if she wears any heels while shooting their sequences together. Therefore, director Indra Kumar and the styling team ensured she wore flats throughout her scenes with him! Initially, she was upset as she loves to wear heels and cannot imagine moving about without them, but later on, she sportingly let go off them. Karishma who has been a model in the past, loves to catwalk in her heels.
When asked about this hilarious turn of events, a source quips, “Yes, Karishma was shocked to hear that her first Bollywood appearance is going to be minus the heel as makers had asked her not to wear high heel shoes to avoid making her look taller than everyone in the frame. Producers Induji and Ashok Thakeriaji took a little while to convince her to get styled with flat shoes instead and she sportingly agreed, with a smile!"
