A well-known name in the South, Tamannaah, whose Bollywood debut Himmatwala tanked at the box office, is unperturbed by its failure. “I started off really early, so I’ve seen success and have failed enough. It’s not my first failure. I am happy my forthcoming films are with superstars like Saif and Akshay.” said the 24-year-old, who is leaving no stone unturned to nail Bollywood.
The actress has shed five killograms to look as fit as her contemporaries in Bollywood and has undergone a makeover of sorts. She revealed, “In South, the actresses are expected to be fuller unlike Bollywood. The sensibilities are totally different. I was always considered thin there but now I am thinner, so I don’t know how people in the South are going to react. Everyone here looks toned and gorgeous. Its not peer pressure but Bollywood has always been the reference point. It’s a glamour industry and the better you look, the better it is. So I decided to undergo a lifestyle change instead of doing it in a short span of time. I am eating right and doing CrossFit five days a week and its showing.”
