There has been struggle to break through: 'Scoop' actor Karishma Tanna on her TV background
Delhi, May 23 (PTI) After over two decades of being "stereotyped as a TV actor", Karishma Tanna says there is a sense of pride in playing the lead role in "Scoop", the Hansal Mehta-directed series which will see her transform into a layered character of a journalist.
Tanna said the moment she found out that she had bagged the role of Jagruti Pathak, a star crime reporter at a Mumbai newspaper who makes headlines after she is accused of her rival's murder in the upcoming series, she was overcome with emotion.
"I couldn't believe I bagged this because coming from TV background there have been struggles in my life to break through. Clearly, Hansal sir must have loved my audition for me to get this role. There was a sense of pride, that I was carrying this entire show on my shoulders. There was a sense of responsibility," Tanna, 39, told PTI in an interview here.
