Tara Alisha Berry: Sparkling like a real Tara!



An ever enthusiastic and cheerful Tara Alisha Berry gave us a glimpse in her personal life and her insights in life and we had a wonderful session! An Indian film and theatre actress, known for her works in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu films.

Here we have a chit-chat session between our host Shalini Gupta and Tara Alisha Berry-

Q. What was Tara Alisha Berry in her childhood?

Tara Alisha Berry:

“ I was stubborn, not an anti-social person and my friend circle kept increased from my close relations. And initially, I was very confused when I entered this industry because some people told me to do modelling, some of them used to advice me to go with music video and casting. I used to say to all in the film industry that ‘Don’t have any plan B and don’t have any backup plan at all.’ “

Q. Which platform will you prefer the most from this: Web series or OTT or Music album?

“I am always ready to do anything in acting. I would like to do anything on a media-related platform. If I believe in the story and ideal with my director, I will be 100% part of it.”

Q . How theatre plays an important role for media aspirants?

“In my point of view, the screenplay is completely different from theatre. When I was studying at Japan university, I have done much screenwriting. You know when you are on the stage, the last person in the last row should feel what you’re feeling. So that is the main thing in acting.”

Q. How much are you fond of acting?

“ Since I have participated in many extracurricular activities from my childhood. I have taken part in many programs in my schools and colleges. But in my college, I came to learn about the eternal things in acting. I love my passion and I love acting. So if you want to be happy, you need to follow your passion. If you wake up every day, choose what you need to live for.”

Q. Have you ever been in this situation that you are not satisfied with the project or you are not satisfied with your director but you need to adjust?

“ Yes, absolutely I have been in that situation and every actor experienced this condition. I have believed in my part I played and I need to earn money to live in Mumbai.”

Q. What is your opinion about this common phrase among Indians, ‘Unless you didn’t have a godfather from this industry, you couldn’t enter in this industry?

“Honestly, I don’t think it is true at all. I believed in the hard work in this industry. Even I know people with godfathers in the same industry can easily pick the chance for the first time. But after that, it depends upon the actor/actress. The fact is that the audience likes you or not and your hard work speaks there. At the end of the day, the audience is going to decide for you”

Q. Are any other skills needed in this film industry other than acting or it is oddly enough?

“No, acting alone is not enough. You need to be very patient and positive. There would be some months with no jobs and you may think that it would be better to shift over to plan B. At that time, you need to be persistent. I am very lucky that I am having such kind of people in my life to pull me out from those hard times and be there in my thick and thin. And sometimes, you might be alone, so you need to have the skill to pull out yourself from the bad situations.”

Q. Which do you believe is the most Hard work or Smart work?

“I think the combination of the both. Hard work is essential and I believe in hard work. Also, I am a least smart worker but I have my managers Kunal and Arthi who are handling me in this industry over the years. And also, smart work needs prior experiences.”

Q. What is the daily routine of Tara Alisha Berry?

“I usually go to sleep earlier between 10 pm to 11 pm and wake up at 7:30 am to 8 am. Then I open the window of my room and I take my dog down. Subsequently, I take my tea and breakfast. I do yoga and workouts, particularly I am interested in Zumba as it is one of my favourites. After these activities, my routines are not similar. It may change daily. In sometime, I used to spend my whole day with my cat and dog.”

Q. Are you a dog person?

“I am a lively person. and love all animals, living beings except moths and butterflies (chuckles). I kept the snake for a few days as I found it in my garden. Some people are scared about dogs or any other animals. So, what I like to say is you don’t have to rear a pet and you don’t need to dislike it.”

Q. What are the best qualities that you possess and mention two worst qualities that you would need to be changed?

“Firstly, the worst qualities are I am very stubborn and I would become very anxious if the things were scattered and not at the fixed place. I am a very emotional person and Yeah, I know that being emotional is not a disadvantage. At sometimes, I would be in bad mood. On the other hand, my advantages and positive qualities are I am a hardworking person and I am highly committed to my work. I am confident and I would always say, ‘Yes, I can do it.’ I encourage people and I give them mental support. I believe don’t be too judgemental about yourself. Because you know more about you than anyone else.”

Q. What is the best thing in this film industry and what is the one thing that you prefer to change in this industry?

“ We can get a wide exposure among people is the best thing in this industry and the industry needs to change is that more women should be placed in powerful positions. As I love to see women in powerful roles like directors, main roles and DOPs. “

Q. What do you like to say about the term ‘Feminist’?

“Lots of people think that feminism is ‘male bashing’ and it is completely incorrect. Feminism is the idea only about gender equality. Women are just the same as men and normal human beings.”

Thank you, Tara Alisha Berry.

It has been a wonderful session with you. Our sincere regards to Tara Alisha Berry all of your future success from PARADOX INDIA

Rajesh Yadav drops some major inspiration for us!



If you watch reels all day we are sure you have once in your scrolling journey came across Rajesh Yadav and if you binge-watch OTT content every day and Campus Diaries is your favourite show then you must be friendly with Sandy! Paradox gets candid and stocks up the inspo from none other than Rajesh Yadav!

Rajesh Yadav Sandy from campus diaries
Rajesh Yadav

1) When did you begin creating material professionally? Was there ever a spontaneous notion or incident that altered your perception of content creation as a profession?

Rajesh Yadav: In December 2015 I started making content, and by God’s grace, my first video drew a big audience. My second video later went viral, making the characters well-known. As my first video went viral, I was motivated to work even harder on my content creation and no longer had to worry about making this my career.

2) Were there any other role models you admired before beginning your journey?

Who motivated you to keep going?

Rajesh Yadav: I liked watching TVF and AIB’s funny and caustic videos before I started working in this field. After seeing their work, I became a fan and started making videos.

3) When did your life change for the better?

Rajesh Yadav: Creating my first video marked a turning moment in my life because I had never before considered a career in the arts or as a content developer. Although I didn’t have much experience in this sector while I was in college. I joined a theatre organization because I had some free time, and I worked there on the weekends.

4) How did you find acting as Sandy in the Campus diaries?

Rajesh Yadav: Sandy from Campus Diaries was my first role in a web series. Due to his many varied characteristics, including the fact that he begins as a friend and ends up as a villain, Sandy is an extremely distinctive character. I had never portrayed a somewhat pessimistic role before. For the first time, I had the opportunity to participate in something brand-new; perhaps the second season will have even more surprises.

5) Whoever would you like to work with if you had the chance to work with any artist in the world, and why?

Rajesh Yadav: Shahrukh Khan is the person I would choose to collaborate with if given the chance. Shahrukh Khan is someone we have all admired and been inspired by since we were young kids, no matter where he is today. I’ve wanted to meet Shahrukh Khan since I was a young child, and if I ever had the chance to work with anyone I wish, Shahrukh Khan would be my first choice.

6) What difficulties did you face at the beginning of your journey?

Rajesh Yadav: The major obstacle I had to overcome at the beginning of my adventure was learning how to produce original and creative videos for the audience. My goal was to come up with concepts that I might potentially employ in novel ways over the long term rather than to produce something that couldn’t be used in the future. Thankfully, I had only encountered these challenges in my first video.

7) Your thoughts? Is that your greatest success to date?

Rajesh Yadav: Any success I may have feels enormous to me as a regular person who enjoys watching superstars and I always had fantasies about meeting them. Nevertheless, now that I’ve recently collaborated with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, communicating and working with them. It is an accomplishment. After following him in college and attempting to meet him, it’s an enormous accomplishment for me to be able to communicate and work with superstars.

8) What is your greatest professional goal?

Rajesh Yadav: We are all aware that every one of us has different goals. My current objective is to play the main character in a movie or web series so that I may discover my talent and exhibit it to others. This is my current objective, and after I reach it, I’ll think about pursuing some more challenging objectives.

9) How have you found performing and writing for MensXP? It is a truly new platform that requires robust connectivity in order to function.

Rajesh Yadav : Four years of working with MensXP has been a wonderful experience. You can work there with complete creative freedom whether you’re writing or acting. It’s critical that you are given the freedom to complete your task on your schedule without interruption. As a result of the drastically different environment you find yourself in, the genre is quite varied and contains humor.

10) What is the final message you would like to convey to your supporters and well-wishers?

Rajesh Yadav: I can only advise my well-wishers to take care of themselves. In this society when everyone is scrambling for something, we all neglect to take care of our physical and mental health. Sometimes we continue to put our physical health first while ignoring our mental health. I, therefore, urge every one of my well-wishers to take care of both themselves and others around them.
