The Rediff Interview / Tisca Chopra
'I enjoyed working with Aamir'
May 14, 2007
Tisca Chopra is an all-rounder. In a short time, this talented actress has done films, television and theatre.
She has also dabbled in theatre in plays like Mahatma v/s Gandhi and Salesman Ramlal.
Now, Tisca has bagged a role in her first big movie, Taare Zameen Par, opposite Aamir Khan. She plays one of the four principal characters in the film.
Rajul Hegde found out more about this actress who may become Bollywood's Next Big Thing.
Mallika in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii was a negative role, but you became very popular. How was the experience?
People liked it because they couldn't relate to my character. Television is a different medium and I am happy I could reach out to different kinds of audiences. If Balaji offers me an interesting role again, I will definitely accept it.
It was a great experience. The drunken scene was challenging because I've never done such a thing before. And I was very nervous.
How was it working with Aamir in Taare Zameen Par?
What other TV shows are you doing?
I recently finished shooting for a mini Pakistani series in Dubai.
I am also anchoring Main Hoon Na, a reality weekly show produced by Applause Entertainment. I have already shot the first round.
What are your future plans?
I also plan to do a play. I have done a workshop with Nasseruddin Shah and will continuing doing it whenever I am free.
