Karishma Tanna is all set to be the new 'Bold and Beautiful' of Tinsel town. She's taking a leap to films with Grand Masti and is very excited to be a part of the crazy team. India Forums gets in a candid exclusive chat with Karishma Tanna. How did you decide to take up this deadly, dangerous, outrageous project called 'Grand Masti'? Doing bold films is no harm in today's time and I wanted to be a part of an out and out comedy film. Today more and more films on adult comedy are being featured and Masti is a brand in itself. I was very happy when I was approached for it.
Aftab said that after he listened to the narration of the script, he hid behind the couch. What was your first reaction after you were approached?
Yes the script is a notch higher than the original. But I was very happy when i was approached and I don't have any regrets being a part of the film. Your co-star Vivek Oberoi calls you Lambu Bamboo, doesn't he? How many crazy memories do you have of him and the rest of the brats from the set.
Yes he does. That's a fact, I am tall and like a stick. And I have a bunch of memories infact with all of them. Vivek, Ritesh and me are on the same page when it comes to humour. We love throwing humour around and it has been a laugh riot on our sets every single day.
Sometimes it is easier for a male actor to do an adult comedy rather than a female actor because of 'visuals'. What was your biggest challenge here?
That's true but as I am playing the character of a wife and not the girl friend I luckily was saved facing the camera for doing bold scenes. I didn't have much and even though I had any it was done very innocently. The challenge was actually faced by the girls who were playing the role of girl friends which was tough.
What would Karishma, the person (not the actor) do if your reel life situation is your real life situation, when your husband is cheating with a girlfriend?
He would surely be thrown out of the house.
You have done TV and now you are doing films. How different are the 2 mediums?
They are 2 different modes of communication. Television reaches out to the mass and makes you feel much closer to them as its a daily affair. Doing films is a big leap I have taken and lets see what it has in store for me.
What kind of roles are you looking forward to in Bollywood?
I do not want to be picky about my roles, I am an actor and the script has to appeal to me. What do you have lined up for us after 'Grand Masti'?
