‘Writing is exhausting’

Actress Tisca Chopra is surrounded by mysteries. Or at least her upcoming films are. Rahasya will go on the floors soon while Ankur Arora Murder Case will hit the screen on June 14. Talking about her upcoming projects Tisca says she has always been choosy about her films.

“I believe script is the real hero of any film. And then my role and the team I work with are the other deciding factors for me to sign a film. Since we spend a lot of time with the film crew it is very important for me to get along with people on set,” says Tisca.
While Tisca remains secretive about Rahasya and says that it’s too early to talk about it, she is thrilled about her first international Indo-European project Qissa.
As the grandniece of Khushwant Singh one would expect writing to be in Tisca’s blood. But after penning her first book A Hitchchiker’s Guide to the Indian Film Industry she says she has no plans to go back to writing soon.
“Writing is a very exhausting task. After I finished a two hour long editing session I was so washed out that I couldn’t move from my chair. Unlike acting it was rather hard for me to make up my mind to sit down to write,” she adds.
Tisca is also an avid art lover and collector. And not just famous foreign artists, she is found of many upcoming Indian artists. “Pablo Picasso has always been my favourite, but I also like Ganesh Pyne and have picked up a few of his works.”
Though with changing infrastructure and countless flyovers that have come up in the city Tisca says she doesn’t really find Delhi familiar anymore. “However, I miss shopping in Delhi. There is no better place to shop than markets in the city like Sarojini Nagar and Janpath. I used to go to these markets very often and I miss doing that,” wraps up Tisca.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
