PROUD TO REPRESENT NORTHEAST: ANDREA
She was one of the three main characters in the Amitabh Bachchanstarrer Pink. And Andrea
Tariang (above), who hails from the northeast says that she’s proud she has been able to represent her region in Bollywood. “Everyone knows many in the northeast are not given a chance to do what I got to do. So, I am really proud that I am able to represent them. It’s close to my heart, I don’t think if I had to do another film it would top this,” she says.
Talking about the constraints she faced while shooting the film, the 25-yearold says, “At the auditions they gave me a few lines to read and they were in Hindi. It took me really long to figure out four lines.”
However, the script had her hooked, she says. “But then, when I read the entire script it was really gripping to me. Most women have experienced what we went through in the film, if I am right. So I could relate very well,” Andrea adds.
