Karishma Tanna was last seen in a negative role in 'Ek Ladki Anjani Si' and now she is taking a break from television and looking to do films. She says that she is not interested in doing any more roles in television, but is aggressively looking forward to a career in Bollywood. Recently, we spoke to her about her future plans. Here is the excerpt.
What are you doing presently?
Presently, I am doing a lot of fashion shows, anchoring and other things. I'm also out looking for a good role.
Have you received any roles yet?
Yes, I have received a few roles, but I do not find them interesting enough. Actually, I'm taking break from television so I am not too keen on roles out here.
So is the film career in the pipeline?
Yes, I have a project in the pipeline, but it is too early too say anything.
Is that role appealing?
I think that as a beginner in films, it is a good role, but then, as I said, it is too early to say anything.
What kind of roles are you looking forward to?
I do not want to do negative character or comedy any more. I think I would like to do a detective kind of role and would be glad if I'm offered with one.
So how was your experience in 'Ek Ladki....'?
Mind blowing.... It was the first negative character that I had done and it was one of the few good characters that have been offered to me thus far. The production house is also very good.
Are you missing 'Ek Ladki....' and your co-stars?
I miss my character a lot and not my co-stars.
How has been your experience in the television industry so far?
It has been a good journey so far. I have matured so much, I have understood so many things, I have understood people and the way they work. I have understood how to deal with people and situations.
Do you find any changes in the industry?
No, I do not find any changes.
You said that you are anchoring. Is it a television show?
No, it is not in television shows, but live events and concerts. I'm really enjoying my work. It is so different from acting and thus I'm happy doing it.
Yes, I have just finished a modeling assignment and probably I would be doing another one soon.
Do you relate to any of the characters that you have played?
I relate to all the characters that I have played till now to some extent or the other because I feel that no person can be an absolute comedy, stupid, negative or grey. It is a mixture of all these qualities.
