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.”

So, the song relates to many of us and the lyrics just rotates in our mind for over a day reminding us of that !

MJ5’s wish was to give India their first Boyband. They did with Bawaal and now once again justifying it with Ziddi.

Bawaal was released in the month of March 2021 which ignited the music and dance industry with a magnificent performance. As the name suggests it made “Bawaal” with their debut.

Dussehra: Victory of Good over evil
Dussehra: Victory of Good over evil, is celebrated on the 10th day of month Ashvina. Victory means Prabhu Rama over Ravana in famous hindu epic Ramayan. Also it means the end of Durga puja and Ramlila. In Ramayan, Ravana kidnaps god Rama’s wife Sita, as god Rama & Laxman cuted of the nose of ravna’s sister surpanakha. So to claim vengeance on them Ravana kidnapped sita. To get back maa sita Prabhu Rama and Laxman faught battle against Ravana with the help of hanuman, Subriv & other Vanar sena.
In this battle Ravana’s brother Bhibishan also helped god Ram against Ravana . At the end of Prabhu Ram wins the battle and rescues Maa Sita. Thereafter this victory is celebrated by burning the statue of Ravan, Kumbhakarn, his son Meghnath. Dusshersa is a climax of long day celebration of Navratri.
The nine days of Navratri is the time to reflect on oneself, observe silence & practice fasting. Fasting cleanses the body of toxins and silence purifies speech & mind. What does Dasehra means Das means ten and hara means take away. Which came after Navratri means nine nights if darkness. On each day of Navratri we pray to that form of goddess durga to take away that darkness of ignorance within us. After that on tenth day on the occasion of Dasehra we burn all the evil, bad things, thoughts, bad habits inside us in that fire in the form of Ravna as evil inside us.
Dusshera: Victory of Good over evil
Ravana is not the demon or evil, you yourself are one. In the battele of Ram and Ravana, god Ram had been invoked Durga May to help him win the battle against Ravana. We also should invoked Durga to help us in gaining back our Sita. Sita? It is awareness inside is which has been traped in maya surround us. To make our soul clean and pure we have to burn the evil in the fire by fighting and winning battle against evil. many evils and negative aura lives within us, we should overcome this with good things. This is what Dasehra symbolise.
It is a supreme festival of Hindu culture with true meaning. Furthermore it also symbolize the feminism as the battle is to bring back maa Sita from the Ravana. Whenever person crosses his limit, go beyond it and try to hurt marayda of stree. She will transform into Durga and will punish that person to death. Rama won the battles and the light and happiness spreaded. its our choice, either we want to be Ravana & get entrapped in the worldly pleasure or want to Rama (A spiritual being).To symbolise and to aware Dashera is celebrated do its called, Dussehra: Victory of Good over evil!
