LIVIN’ IT UP!

Stardust (English) - - COURT MARTIAL -

The ac­tress, who re­cently re­turned from a trip to Los An­ge­les, be­lieves she’s a re­newed soul, ow­ing to her travel es­capades.“I love trav­el­ling be­cause you ex­pe­ri­ence dif­fer­ent things. I like hav­ing my senses in­vaded with lots of dif­fer­ent in­flu­ences. I learnt a new form of danc­ing and did dif­fer­ent kinds of work­outs be­cause I love work­ing out. I ate good food, went out with friends and shopped like crazy. I lived ev­ery mo­ment. Af­ter all, that’s what a hol­i­day is all about, bring­ing back great mo­ments and mem­o­ries,” she rem­i­nisces. Con­trary to her im­age of a spunky, snooty, haughty, snob, Tan­isha came across as a docile, sub­mis­sive, calm and com­posed per­son­al­ity on the show, Bigg Boss Sea­son 7. When we be­gin to won­der, which one of the two is the real Tan­isha Muk­erji, the ac­tress ques­tions, “But why can’t I be both?” She adds, “I’m a townie snob… snooty some­times. I’m brought up that way. We grew in the midst of Hindi films, although my friends would say, ‘Oh, your sis­ter is act­ing in Hindi films!’ They couldn’t be­lieve it till she be­came a star. I was in fifth grade at that point, so what do you know then, re­ally.” Although, if another sea­son of the show is of­fered, the ac­tress would take the plunge only if the game threw mind-bog­gling chal­lenges at her, “It has to be some­thing phe­nom­e­nal. If they are ca­pa­ble of think­ing that out in­tel­li­gently, then maybe, I’d do it. I’ve played the game and I’m bored with it. I’m not in­ter­ested un­less Bigg Boss has been taken to another level,” she quips. How­ever, the ac­tress has no qualms about its af­ter­math nor does she re­gret the de­ci­sion. As a mat­ter of fact, she be­lieves peo­ple’s per­cep­tion to­wards her has changed due to the show. She says, “I def­i­nitely came out as a pa­tivrata wife, I’m sure. But I would be, be­cause I be­lieve in mar­riage as an in­sti­tu­tion.” In fact, she has even come close to get­ting mar­ried be­fore, but claims she never got the ring. “I just never got that ring. I’m not that chaalu (laughs). I never got it be­cause, then you keep the ring, and I wouldn’t get a small ring,” says she. Doesn’t she get irked when peo­ple of­ten bring up the in­fa­mous topic — Ar­maan Kohli and her love saga, both, on, and off cam­era? The two courted con­tro­ver­sies for their li­ai­son on the show, and gar­nered enough TRPs. Post the show, though they ap­par­ently con­tin­ued to be spot­ted to­gether and even con­tem­plated mar­riage, due to Ar­maan’s brash be­hav­iour and dis­cour­te­ous con­duct, the ac­tress cut cords with the ac­tor. “I don’t give a shit. Peo­ple can say or write what­ever. It was right there on Tele­vi­sion, all my friends gos­siped about it. I came out and my friends said ‘Dude, you pro­vided us so much gos­sip, we are miss­ing it.’ Peo­ple are gos­sip­ing about me even af­ter the show is over. I think there was more gos­sip af­ter com­ing out of the house, than in the house (laughs). I love to gos­sip too. It is fun and one shouldn’t take it se­ri­ously. As far as rep­u­ta­tion is con­cerned, your rep­u­ta­tion is what you make, when you sit across a per­son and look them in the eye, and how they treat you at that point, and not what­ever is be­fore or af­ter. We are liv­ing in an age of in­stant grat­i­fi­ca­tion, no­body re­mem­bers
