Karishma Tanna rose to fame after her ‘Big Boss’ stint.
Though she began her TV career in 2000 with the serial ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, success in movies has remained elusive.
Speaking about it to the media she said, “I do feel a bit dejected about my film career. I am sad that it didn’t take off as expected. I didn’t get my due as an actor. I think I have an attractive personality and good looks. But I don’t know what went wrong? You need to stop thinking about such things and move on. Even if I don’t have a successful film career, at least I am a popular name on TV. I always see the positive side of things. You do feel negative at times, and even humiliated, but if you keep thinking about that, then your life won’t move forward.”
Speaking about reality shows, she said, “Doing reality TV shows in the past two years has definitely helped my career. I took a break from TV for about three-four years. During that time, I had to let go of some of the best shows that were offered to me, as I wanted to focus on films. It was believed that if you are seen too much on TV, you won’t get films. Had I continued working on TV, I might have been one of the biggest TV stars today. I don’t think I wasted my time. Films didn’t work out, but now TV is surely working out for me.” – CI NEWS
