Tasheen Shah, an 8-year-old free spirited girl is a very well known name among Indian child actors. Tasheen gained popularity from the innocent role she played in “Udaan” earlier broadcasted on the Colors channel. It was the beginning and now there is no stopping for this little girl who won hearts of many across the nation.
1. Last we saw you in “Udaan” as a character in the role. What do you think about the role you played?
Imli’s role in Udaan is the one that gave me utmost fame. It was a role of an innocent sister who believed in her sister a lot and was ready to do anything for her sister Chakor.
2. Has life as an actor been difficult and less like the ordinary children?
No, it is not at all difficult as it depends on your time management skills. I have observed and felt that acting made studies quite simple for me because when you act you have to express as well which is not required while learning a subject. No, my life is still an ordinary as my ambition is to become a cricketer and not an actor. I act only because my Daddy loves watching me on TV.
3. Have you ever missed any part of your childhood?
Yes, I did miss a lot of things while shooting but I am happy with whatever God has planned for me as it goes with the sayings ‘No Gains without Pains’ & ‘ Kuch Paane Ke Liye Kuch Khona Padta Hai’. After Udaan, my Daddy takes very small assignments for me as his wish also gets fulfilled and I enjoy my childhood too. So after Udaan, I did Shakti – Colors Swaragini, Colors CID, Bhakti me shakti etc.
4. When was first that you were exposed to this industry! How has the journey been for you?
I first acted in 2013 in Amita Ka Amit – Sony TV as an orphan and then in Jodha Akbar – Zee TV as child Rukaiyya (flashback scene) after which I was selected for Udaan and then everything changed. Its been more than 3 years in this industry and I have learned a lot. Udaan gave me fame but Shakti, Swaragini, Wajah tum Ho and now Chhote Miyan has given me a variety of roles and experiences from those roles.
5. Who is your favorite co-actor from all the ones you have performed with?
Every actor leaves a mark in our lives but only a few make a strong influence and a place in our heart. After all the serials I have worked in my favorite co-actor has been Helly Shah (Swara from Swaragini). She has the energy, vigor, and charisma that nobody else manifests in my knowledge.
6. Which is the most memorable moment this industry has given you?
When I was nominated for the ‘Best Child Actor‘ category in Boro Plus Star Gold Awards. Unfortunately, I didn’t win the award but the nomination itself was a big achievement for me.
7. How has the experience been for your parents?
When a parent is known by the name of their child it overwhelms them immeasurable. My parents are proud of me and everything is as much a dream come true for them as for me.
