Karishma Tanna

On 70mm
I am a person who likes to enjoy everything in life. I don’t do anything that doesn’t excite me. So, while I was busy doing television shows and commercials, I got the opportunity to do films. And here I am. My upcoming release is the sequel to a comedy. It is a fun ‘only-adults’ film.

Exploring opportunities
I have taken a break from daily shows. I want to explore interesting roles in the Hindi film industry. Of course, comedy films interest me as I enjoy good humour. Also, I am game to host a reality show on television.

On a day off
Since I am busy shooting most of the days, I prefer to spend my leisure time with my mom. There’s no place like home, I like to sit with my family and catch up. If my friends are free, then they drop in for lunch or dinner. Otherwise, I sleep it off. Whenever I get the time, I take off for a long drive. I also like to go out and pamper myself in a salon; massages are a great form of relaxation. To unwind, I like to listen to light hearted romantic numbers. It immediately cheers me up. My favourite song is Rolling in the Deep by Adele. 

Fitness mantra
I work out everyday, do my functional training and run a lot. As far as food is concerned, I just cannot diet. I eat rice but I compensate and burn the calories by running.
