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.
