Actress Tara Sharma: I hope to do more movies




Actress Tara Sharma is happy to be the creator, writer and co-producer of her successful project “The Tara Sharma Show”, but says once in a while it’s nice to get offered a film with a good script. She has made her acting comeback with a short film and a feature movie, but she wants more.

Tara, who was once known as the Liril girl, made her Bollywood debut in 2002 with the multi-starrer “Om Jai Jagadish”. She then featured in hit films like “Khosla Ka Ghosla”, “Masti” and “Page 3”.

She was last seen on the big screen in the 2012 film “10ml Love”.

Now, she is back to acting.

“I have been tied up with my show and kids. But I have always wanted to act again. I think somewhere I lost confidence. Suddenly, out of the blue Anusha Bose (director of the short film ‘Shame’) called me up,” Tara told IANS.

“She said ‘There’s a tiny role, but would you like to do it?’ I said ‘Sure’. I have never been a believer in size. I have been a believer in a good project. Even if I am a fly on the wall, I am happy to do it if it’s a good project.”

“It was short, but it was really fun. It kind of helped me to get back my confidence. It’s very short, but a dramatic role.”

Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films showcased four short films, including “Shame” at the ongoing Jio MAMI 20th Mumbai Film Festival with Star.

Unfortunately, her other film, “Kadhakh”, got removed from the fest’s line-up in the wake of the #MeToo movement as the movie also has actor Rajat Kapoor, who was accused of sexual harassment.

Asked if it’s unfair to others involved in the film, Tara said: “Of course, a movement has to create the right impact positively on the society. Unfortunately, there is a lot of collateral damage. So, when a film is removed, a lot of people suffer.

“What is right or wrong, I am nobody to comment. It is disappointing for us.”

Nevertheless, Tara is thrilled to be a part of the feature film and doing a “bigger role. I am inching towards acting more and more. I hope to do more movies”.

Since she is a mother now, she feels she has more in her to give as an actor.

“I feel so many things – giving birth, growing up in many ways, living life more … My father passed away. There’s so much emotion,” she said.

Will abide by what SC rules on Sushant probe, says Maharashtra government



Though the Maharashtra government opposes a CBI probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, it will abide by the Supreme Court’s decision in the matter, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Saturday.

In a significant statement, Deshmukh told media persons that the state will follow the ruling of the apex court vis-a-vis the probe into the case, but opposes a CBI investigation on grounds of jurisdiction.

“The Mumbai Police are probing the case very thoroughly and professionally. However, we shall go by what the Supreme Court says at the hearing on August 11,” he said.

In the past week, Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh briefed Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, while investigating team members met officials of the Law and Judiciary Department.

The latest stand is different from the Maharashtra government’s earlier stated position that there was no need to hand over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as the Mumbai Police are doing a competent job and probing it from all possible angles.

The CBI has registered an FIR based on the case lodged by Patna police on the complaint of Sushant’s father, K.K. Singh.

Last week, the Mumbai Police had cold-shouldered the Patna police team which was camping in Mumbai for several days for probing the Sushant case.

On Friday, irate over his 6-day long quarantine ordered by the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as he reached Mumbai to help the state police team, Patna’s SP, City, Vinay Tiwari hit out at the Maharashtra government after he was released.

“I was not quarantined, but the Sushant probe was quarantined,” he said, before flying back to Bihar as per Covid-19 protocols as directed by the BMC.
