Karan Johar’s latest find, Tara Sutaria, who is making her Bollywood debut with Student Of The Year 2, is calm and composed even as the countdown to her first film has begun (releases on 10 May). Her confidence can be attributed to the fact that the 23-year-old has been a VJ. But also has two successful sitcoms to her credit. Adding to that, at the age of five, Tara started learning Western classical music. They have been performing on stage for the past 15 years. She has been part of musical theatres like Raell Padamsee’s production of the musical Grease and Ashwin Gidwani’s production Blame It On Yashraj.
“But Student Of The Year 2 is completely my debut,” she clarifies. “I am lucky that I have been raised in the arts and have been performing all my life. But this is a completely different world for me. Dharma (Productions) launch is quite magical. It felt a bit of a holiday because we were shooting in such beautiful locations in Mussoorie,” she says. And lucky she indeed is. Even when her first film has not hit the screens, her second film, Marja van opposite Sidharth Malhotra is complete. Then, Tara’s third film, opposite Suniel Shetty’s son Ahan, which is a remake of Telugu film RX100, will go on floors in June this year.Share this to your,
