Tamannaah Bhatia – Bahubali was a game changer for me; it helped me find my strengths that I didn’t know I had

Mumbai, 26th February 2024 “Bahubali was a game changer for me not only from audience perspective but also from the perspective of being an actor and performer. Bahubali gave me a character for which I could not pick a reference from anywhere,” star Bollywood Actress Tamannaah Bhatia, shared her evolution as an actor in the session, “So Many Cinemas” at the ‘Ideas of India’ Summit 3.0.

Acknowledging filmmaker Rajamouli for the opportunity, she remarked, “It showed that sometimes it is someone else’s eye for you to discover your strengths”

Appreciating the movie industry in the South, Tamannaah Bhatia, remarked “The South film industry has consistently maintained that they tell more rooted stories and capture the very basic emotions in a much nuanced way”

Sharing a glimpse about herself, Tamannaah said, “I am a realist but I am also a mushy at heart Romantic You get what you are, so I started becoming my idea of true love. I am a very people’s person. I don’t have any problem with people approaching me”

Sharing her views about OTT versus the big cinema, Tamanaah said, “OTT is a shift of medium. It is a great strength. Today you don’t feel restricted if you want to watch a movie”

“Nepotism is in every industry. But if you have talent and if you understand people management in an organization you can make it anywhere,” Tamannah expressed, speaking about nepotism.

Later she added her perspective about feminism, “Feminism is for both genders. It is great when women who don’t have that power are empowered. As individual human beings we are not copy of each other; we are unique. We need not imitate others who are doing something or going a certain way. Settling down is an independent journey. When we talk about feminism, it should not be a necessity for women to choose a partner; she should be free to choose a life partner that she wants to choose. We should break the notion that women need a life partner for settling down.”

Responding to a question on something that she would want to change about herself, Tamanaah said, “I never had any time to prepare. If I had an opportunity to prepare and not always perform, I would have preferred that. I watch my movies a little later so that I can view it more objectively. My family is very brutal reviewing my movies, and I appreciate their honest opinions.”

The ABP Network’s ‘Ideas of India’ Summit 3.0 spotlighting the ‘The People’s Agenda’ brought a confluence of ideas and ideators to a common platform celebrating the country’s people and its plurality.
