Karishma Tanna, who was last seen in a negative role in 'Ek Ladki Anjani Si', is taking a break from television and looking towards films. She is currently busy with anchoring and fashion shows and says that she is happy doing them. Nevertheless, Karishma is eagerly waiting for the right break in Bollywood. We recently talked to her on her current assignments, future plans and her experience in the telly industry. 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 looking out for a good role.
Have you received any roles yet?
Yes, I have received a number of roles, but I do not find them interesting enough. Actually, I'm taking break from television and 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 about it.
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 portray negative characters any more. Nor am I interested in comedy. I think I would like to do a detective kind of role and would be glad if I'm offered 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 had been offered to me. 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 and the 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 television shows, but live events and concerts. I'm really enjoying my work. It is so different from acting and I'm happy doing it.
Yes, I have just finished a modeling assignment and probably on May 27, I would be doing another one.
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 extend or the other because I feel that no person can be an absolute comedy, stupid, negative or gray. A person is a mixture of all these qualities.
