TV actor Karishma Tanna achieved popularity with her naïve character Indu in the TV serial Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. After a fruitful career in TV, she has now moved to greener pastures signing two films — Sher with Vivek Oberoi and Golu Pappu with Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor.
Karishma says, “I am excited about this new phase in my life. It’s heartening to see talented girls like Prachi Desai and Yami Gautam making it big in films and proving themselves. I’m in their league as well, and with these two films, I will prove myself too.”
Having begun her film career with a South film, she is looking forward to her first Hindi film release. “My debut film is with Viacom. It’s tentatively titled Golu Pappu and stars actors Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor. I play a cop in this dramatic film,” she says.
Having got the role in her second film after a few auditions, Karishma feels lucky to get this “wonderful opportunity.” Currently shooting for Astavinayak’s film Sher, she reveals. “It’s a period film where I play Sanjay Dutt’s sister and Viviek Oberoi’s love interest.”
The film has been realistically set in 1970 and is based on the real life story of the late Sarman Munja, a gangster from Porbandar, Gujarat. Praising her co-star, she adds, “Vivek is a fabulous actor, a good guy, and a brat on the sets.”
