Actor Tanishaa Mukherji, who recently finished filming for Anna, a biopic on social activist Anna Hazare, plays a journalist in the film. Talking about the challenges she faced while playing the role, Tanishaa says that she had to work on how not to appear emotionally involved when reporting.
“The challenge I faced was keeping myself unemotional while playing a journalist. It took me time to understand how hard it is to not get emotionally involved in what you’re reporting. It is difficult to stay unbiased,” says Tanishaa, who shot in shot in Anna’s hometown in Ahmednagar, Maharashta, where she interacted with the locals.
According to sources close to the actor, she also observed senior journalists on television to get her body language right.
Meanwhile, the actor says that she is on the lookout for something very different for her next film. In fact, she is keen on trying out something adventurous. “I had recently gone for a holiday where I tried some water sports. I think I would like to do the role of a scuba diving instructor or anything related to a sport as that will challenge me,” says Tanishaa, who also took part in stunt-based reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi last year.
