Q A

Myth­i­cal Star

India Today - - LEISURE - —with Suhani Singh

Ta­man­naah, ac­tor, on van­ity, her past life, and loo et­ti­quette

Q: The odd­est place you’ve ever been asked ‘Why did Kat­tappa kill Baahubali’? A: The air­port bath­room. I was mak­ing my way to the loo, and some­one just ran­domly stopped and asked me. I was like ‘Can I just fin­ish first and then get to you?’

Q: The tough­est day on the sets of Baahubali? A: We were shoot­ing my first fight scene in Ma­ha­balesh­war. It was pour­ing. It was phys­i­cally drain­ing: the cos­tume I was wear­ing was heavy and I was wet. But noth­ing can stop Raj sir from shoot­ing.

Q: One at­tribute of Avan­tika’s you pos­sess/ would like to pos­sess? A: Like her, I don’t ap­pre­ci­ate my­self for a lot of things I do. A lot of women do this—we only look at the faults and what we could have done bet­ter. It’s my par­ents, friends and fam­ily who tell me I’m do­ing this well and right. Of course, sword-fight­ing skills would also come in handy.

Q: One thing you can’t do with­out on set? A: I sound so vain—but I do need my mir­ror.

Q: Your all-time favourite movie? A: Dil Toh Pa­gal Hai in Hindi and The Mummy in English. I have a strong feel­ing that I was an Egyp­tian in my last life.
