Tamannaah Bhatia who has done only four Bollywood films, Chand Sa Roshan Chehra (2005), Himmatwala (2013), Entertainment (2014) and Humshakals (2014), says she needs to make her presence felt in the industry with substantial work. The actor h is currently working towards that and believes once she starts doing more films people will stop calling her a newcomer.

“I think it’s only fair that people know you by what they have last seen of you. If I have done more films down South then the audience there will know me more. But in Bollywood they haven’t seen me doing a limited number of films, so for the audience here I am new. As an actor you need to prove yourself over and over again to develop a certain kind of fan following and reputation. So I don’t mind the tag, rather it excites me thinking that people have actually noticed whatever little work I had done,” says Tamannaah who has done films such as Kalloori, Kanden Kadhalai and Baahubali: The Beginning.

Meanwhile, she is happy with the films she’s taken up in Bollywood and South, and feels those films would prove her talent. The actor is presently shooting for yet-to-be-titled bilingual film also starring Prabhudheva, where she plays a deaf and mute character. In South, she is doing Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan aka AAA with Silambarasan and Sketch starring Vikram.

As talks veer to her love life, Tamannaah says she isn’t comfortable talking about it. However, when prodded further she adds, “I think we all have to be with one person and when that happens I would love to share it with the whole world. But as of now I can’t say much. When the right time comes I would definitely talk about it.”

Many actors are often quoted are against dating someone from the same profession. Ask Tamannaah about it and she adds, “I don’t have any preconceived notion when it comes to my relationships or profession. I have no such hang-ups. Things will happen when they have to happen. Staying positive and making proper effort is the key. I also believe in taking each day as it comes,” she ends.
