'I don't get stuck in negativity'

Bollywood actor Tara Alisha Berry, whose latest project ‘Love Game’ will release in the first week of April, comes to Bengaluru whenever she wants to relive her childhood days. For it was in Bengaluru that she did her schooling in.

The young actor, who has already started getting rave reviews for her performance in ‘Love Game’, says she’s glad to have essayed the role of Alisha in the film.  

Tara believes every project is a learning curve and she is clear she wants to try her hand at as many characters as possible just so that she has no regrets when it comes to not having taken good work.

She speaks to Nina C George about her experience in the film industry and her Bengaluru connection.

How did you go about accepting ‘Love Game’?

It would be fair to say that the movie chose me. The director, Vikram Bhatt is a very warm-hearted person who knows exactly what he wants from his actors. The script has been written in an intelligent way where every single character has a definite purpose. The actors also have some very complex emotions to portray which make the subject seem real.

Tell us about your character in the film?

I play the role of Alisha who is a strong and resilient woman. Her strong persona blends with the other characters.

Your take on the title of the film?

‘Love Game’ is an interesting title because it does well to arouse one’s curiosity. People are always playing games when it comes to love, so much so, that it has become hard to find true love.

How do you react to criticism?

Being criticised and being linked up with other actors is part and parcel of being in the entertainment industry. I ignore the link-ups but if the criticism is coming from somebody who means well by me, then I definitely pay heed to it. If it is done to trigger negativity and pull me down, then I stay away from it. I don’t get stuck in negativity.

How do you choose your projects?

I think it is important to work with a good production house and if I believe the story and the characters involved have depth then I accept it. Learning never ends. Do you agree?
Yes, I do. I am always curious about what life has to offer and I can never imagine myself being relaxed. Every project that I have worked on has taught me a great deal about cinema and sometimes about life itself.

What brings you to Bengaluru?

I did my schooling in Bengaluru and I have my aunt and grandmother staying here. I used to remember hanging around Brigade Road when I was studying at the Canadian International School. It wasn’t so crowded back then and there wasn’t so much traffic. Sadly, Bengaluru has also become polluted. But I still love the City for the lively music scene and good vibes.
