Ac­tor Kar­ishma Tanna, who has bagged a cameo in film­maker Ra­jku­mar Hi­rani’s biopic on ac­tor San­jay Dutt, says she can’t thank God enough for the op­por­tu­nity. “Ever since the news broke, I’m happy that the fo­cus shifted from my per­sonal life to this,” says Kar­ishma, who was in news for her break-up with ac­tor Upen Pa­tel.

An ex-Bigg Boss (pop­u­lar re­al­ity TV show) con­tes­tant, she has done sub­stan­tial work on tele­vi­sion, but Bol­ly­wood has al­ways been a strug­gle. Kar­ishma, who was seen in sex-com­edy Grand Masti (2013), says: “Now that I’m fi­nally get­ting the chance, I’ll make the most of it. Work­ing with Hi­rani sir is a big thing for me. At least in my re­sume, I’ll have a men­tion of his name in my fil­mog­ra­phy.”

Hop­ing that team­ing up with an ace di­rec­tor like Hi­rani will help her get more films and big­ger roles, the 33-year-old says: “I un­der­stand that it is just a guest ap­pear­ance, but hope­fully, it’d give me more recog­ni­tion in the [film] in­dus­try. I’m be­ing pos­i­tive that some­thing good will come my way af­ter this big project.”

The ac­tor is look­ing for­ward to the project as a great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, and is ex­cited to be on the film’s set to ob­serve ac­tor Ran­bir Kapoor (who plays Dutt in the film). “I get to see how Ran­bir is giv­ing par­tic­u­lar shots, and how Hi­rani sir is di­rect­ing. I get to pick so many things as an ac­tor. Also, I’m a good ob­server of peo­ple and their man­ner­isms,” says Kar­ishma, adding that she has been strictly in­structed to not di­vulge any­thing about her role.
