Tisca Chopra

Tisca Chopra of Taare Zameen Par fame has moved on from actor to producer in her short film Chutney. The 15-minute movie, which additionally stars Adil Hussain and Rasika Duggal, sees Tisca de-glammed as she plays the housewife Vanita. The plot concentrates on how people who appear to be conventional can shroud some chilling insider facts and without giving ceaselessly any spoilers – the ending is complete shocker. Discussing her washed-out symbol, the actor said, “For me, pretty is boring. I love losing myself in the character. There are many people around us who go unnoticed as there is nothing striking about them. I used to often wonder if some of them had exciting stories to share. Vanita is one such person. She is ugly, cannot speak well, and is married into a family that is higher in status than hers, but what is inside her is amazing. In a way, it’s like the revenge of the geeks.”

Chutney has been released under Tisca’s banner The Eastern Way, as per a report in Times Of India. In a manner of speaking, this film has been really taking shape for quite a while. Tisca said, “Many years ago, I had performed it as a play and it stayed on in my mind. Recently, I met the director, Jyoti Kapur Das, and we started writing the script.
