Did you know Tamanna made her Bollywood debut in the year 2005 with Chand Sa Roshan Chehra? Well, yes! The actress then headed southwards because she did not find any Bollywood script that came her way interesting.
Says the actress, “I sign films that I enjoy watching as an audience and Himmatwala is one such movie and therefore I signed it after waiting for so long. While I was working down South, I got many offers but nothing interested me as an audience.”
The 23-year-old actor will soon be seen opposite Ajay Devgn in the remake of the 1980s hit flick, Himmatwala. She will be playing Sridevi’s part in the film.
On being compared to Sridevi, Tamanna says, “The movie made Sridevi an icon in that era and no one can recreate that magic. But my role too has substance and I have tried my level best to do justice to it. Also I am a huge fan of Srideviji so this role will be my tribute to her.”
Tamanna had an awesome time shooting with Ajay Devgn. Talking about her on screen romance with the 43-year-old, she says, “As actors when we are on a film set we play the character, irrespective of our age. That is how we are tuned to think so there is no age barrier. I was as comfortable doing a romantic scene as any other scene.”
Tamanna had one principle that she follows. “I don’t kiss on screen and nor will I ever don a bikini. I have followed it so far and continue to do so,” she shares.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old has bagged yet another Bollywood project, a comedy flick opposite Akshay Kumar.
