She denies that she had done a friendly appearance in Bhaagam Bhaag because Pridarshan had promised to cast her in his next film Dhol. She says, "Priydarshan ji did not at all promise me that he would cast me in his next film Dhol. I also did not have any expectations at all. I decided to do the friendly appearance only because I was very keen on working with Govinda, Akshay Kumar and Priyadarshan ji. Sometimes I prefer to give my grey cells some rest and take up certain work with gut feeling. It rang a bell when I got the offer to do a friendly appearance in Bhaagam Bhaag. Priyadarshanji liked my work in 'Bhaagam Bhaag' and three months after I had shot for Bhagam Bhag, I received a call from a private number. It was Priyadarshanji on the line. He offered me this role in Dhol."
A firm believer in the gut feeling, Tanushree admits of having done a guest appearance in 36 China Town for Subhash Ghai and Abbas-Mustan based on her feelings. " My gut feeling had paid me off even at that time. At that point of time, I had finished shooting for one schedule for Ashwini Chowdhury's Good Boy Bad Boy, as a part of my three-film contract with Mukta Arts. Soon after I completed my work in 36 China Town , Abbas and Mustan offered to cast me in their next film Mr Fraud along with Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu and Anuj Saawhney."
Agreeing she was wasted in Risk, Tanushree says, "In Risk, my role was supposed to be a full-fledged one but it ended up being a guest appearance. It was definitely a case of misjudgement on my part. I should say it was a gut feeling, which went wrong. It came as a big disappointment because though the promos had me in a big way, I had no role in it. People who expected to see Tanushree did not get what they wanted because it was out and out a male dominated film. On the other side, I choose to see the glass as half-full and not half empty. Because films come and go, but people do not even remember them, whereas I am remembered even for my zero role in Risk."
She denies that she ever had a relationship with Aditya Dutt who directed her in Aashiq Banaya Aapne. "My friendship with Aditya had always confused the media into coming to wrong inference. I have not given much thought to Mr Right at this stage of my career. Mr Right can wait for the next 10 years, as I prefer to stay away from attachment. They say when you meditate; you have to do it all alone and cannot do with five people. Similarly, when you concentrate on your career, you cannot afford to get involved."
