Af­ter hav­ing done films such as Chand Sa Roshan Chehra (2005), Him­mat­wala (2013), En­ter­tain­ment (2014) and Humshakals (2014),

Ta­man­naah Bha­tia (left) went miss­ing from the Bol­ly­wood scene. The rea­son, Ta­man­naah says, was that she was get­ting sim­i­lar of­fers, and hence de­cided to wait for right projects. “I didn’t want to re­peat my­self. I wanted to break the girl-next-door im­age. So when I was of­fered to play au­rally chal­lenged char­ac­ter in Vasu (Bhag­nani) sir’s film, I took it up in­stantly. I felt it was a great op­por­tu­nity for me to play some­thing dif­fer­ent. I have even gone with­out makeup for this role.”

The ac­tor has just fin­ished shoot­ing for this yet-to-be-ti­tled film, which also stars Prab­hud­heva. The film doesn’t have a re­lease date yet, as the mak­ers are also plan­ning a Tamil ver­sion, and both the films will hit the­atres at the same time.

Mean­while, Ta­man­naah, who is cur­rently read­ing two to three Hindi film scripts a week, says she’s a to­tal be­liever in com­mer­cial films. “What­ever star­dom I have today, is be­cause of the com­mer­cial films that I have done. But that doesn’t mean I’m say­ing no to non­com­mer­cial cinema,” she adds.
