first got our attention with Neal and Nikki back in 2005. And again in 2013, she raised several eyebrows when she entered the Bigg Boss house in season seven. Tanishaa definitely adds shock value to everything she does, be it television or films or even link-ups.
Tanishaa’s Bollywood connect is hardly a secret. Born to director Shomu Mukherjee and actress Tanuja, Tanishaa’s elder sister Kajol and brother-inlaw Ajay Devgn are among the biggest stars in the industry. Despite a strong backing, Tanishaa couldn’t make it big in the Hindi film industry. After a few film appearances, she got her first lead role under the Yash Raj banner. And while it put Tanishaa on the map, Neal and Nikki simply didn’t have the impact it was expected to.
During the shoot, whether by jabbering away in Marathi or pulling pranks on the set, Tanishaa charmed our entire crew with her enthusiasm. We spoke to her about her new ventures, her sabbatical from films and the burdens of belonging to a family connected to Bollywood.
