Bollywood actress Tamannaah Bhatia is one of the most sought-after actresses in the industry. She has been around in the showbiz for 18 years now. In a recent interview, the actress recalled her initial days.

Tamannaah on changing her mannerisms

Reminiscing her initial days in the world of entertainment, the actress in an interview with Barkha Dutt stated, “When I stepped into the industry, there was a producer who told me, whether you are walking, fighting, dancing, you need to look like a girl. He explained me when I was working on a film. The funny thing was that I had to look like a girl for the role I was supposed to play in the film. So I had to learn to walk like that.”

Tamannaah further quoted, “It was the first part of my training. The producer told me that I somehow walk like a ‘bhai’. So I should learn to walk like a girl. In my school I was like a ‘Gundi’. I used to fight for samosas. But my acting aspirations were always clear. I wanted to dance wearing a chiffon saree with snow-clad mountains in the backdrop. This was my life’s goal.”

The actress shared that learning female mannerisms was physically tiring as she had to pay attention to her shoulders all the time.

Workwise, Tamannaah Bhatia had two releases recently. She appeared in ‘Jee karda’ and ‘Lust Stories 2’. In the anthology, the actress is seen sharing the screen with boyfriend Vijay Verma for the first time. Besides this, she has broken her old ‘no-kissing’ policy for the web series.
