Tara Sutaria’s name also comes in the successful jump from TV to films. She is in the shooting phase of ‘Heropanti 2’ with Tiger Shroff. The schedule of ‘Ek Villain Returns’ with John and Arjun has also been completed. Whereas, Tara’s film Tadap with Ahan Shetty is releasing on December 3. This movie is an adaptation of ‘RX 100’. Recently, Tara has shared things related to her upcoming projects and career in a special conversation with Dainik Bhaskar. Here are the highlights of the conversation with Tara –
Soon after ‘Marjaavaan’ another tragedy ‘Tadap’ is happening. Is there any special reason? Also, for those who have watched ‘RX 100’, what will be new in ‘Tadap’?
Personally, I like stories that have tragedy, love and intensity. You will see all that in ‘Tadap’. This is an adaptation of the ‘AX 100’. Sajid Nadiadwala and Milan Luthria sir have adapted it in a very interesting way, which suits the pan India audience. I have also seen ‘RX 100’ many times, but the flavor of ‘Tadap’ is different. We have adapted it keeping Mussoorie, Rishikesh in mind. Looking at its love stories, the audience will be blown away. A film with that feeling hasn’t come for a long time.
What have been the takeaways from the characters you play?
My next film is ‘Ek Villain Returns’. I am singing all the songs in it. The takeaway there was that if you know how to dance, sing, that’s a bonus for you. If there are characters, then their preparation is different. It’s not easy to record many hours in the studio. The shooting schedule of ‘Heropanti 2’ is much left. There is a schedule of at least 40 days left. In it, I have played the exact opposite character from the original Tara. There Tara will be seen in fun and light avatar. In real life I am very shy. People will see a light and fun loving Tara in ‘Heropanti 2’.
What were the additional preparations for Tadap?
Ahan and I read a scene from ‘The Dirty Picture’ in our first meeting before leaving for its shoot. In it, Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi are talking while having a drink. Milan Luthria sir shot that shot of ours. Further Sajid Nadiadwala sir saw that shot and was offered ‘Tadap’ on the same day. Due to Kovid and other reasons, it took two years to complete, so we also evolved a lot during the entire period. It was shot in Mussoorie, where I also shot ‘Student of the Year 2’.
‘The Dirty Picture’ was kind of a biopic, which biopic would you like to do and when?
I just want to take another year or two. After testing myself a little more, I would like to step into the biopic genre. Will try that I can do a musical biopic sometime. Talking about historical film, one day we can make new age Mughal-e-Azam. Now who will be the ideal Salim in him, he will see then.
Your first film could not do much, it also had Tiger in it, then how did you handle yourself?
In such a situation also you have to take care of yourself. That’s because it happens in every industry. Rejections are possible. Movies are just another thing. It will never be known which film will work and which will not. You have to have faith and confidence in yourself.
Still have to give auditions for the characters?
No. Was given only for ‘Student of the Year 2’. Director Punit Malhotra was reading someone else’s lines. I used to respond to that. Now you don’t have to give thank god auditions.
What sacrifices have you made to get to this point?
I do not give up on my efforts. I have been taking training in music, dance, hosting since the age of six. Those sessions were often six to ten hours long. If I accept it as a sacrifice, it will be my wrong approach. You have to learn to enjoy the preparation process only then you will be successful.
