Profile of Tannishtha Chatterjee
Tannishtha was born on 23rd November, 1980 in Pune, Maharashtra. She belongs to an orthodox Hindu Bengali family. Her father was working as an executive in an MNC in Pune. Her mother is a Political Science Professor.
Tannishtha was quite good at study from her schooling days. She was having deep interest in science subjects and dreaming about going for IIT. She even appeared in the IIT JEE, but couldn’t cross the hurdle. She got admission in REC (now, NIT), but declined and decided to go for B. Sc. which she has done in Chemistry from Delhi University.
In DU, her ambition took a definitive turn. She decided to seriously work for becoming a theatre artist. After completing graduation, she appeared in the admission test of National School of Drama and easily cracked it. After doing diploma from NSD and getting trained under famous film and acting personalities, she was ready to taste the real water of acting. She decided to work only in those movies where she has something to do in terms of acting. The result is a long list of critically acclaimed films, like Bopal: Prayer for Lane and Bengali Film Bibar.
Controversy of Comment on Skin Colour
Tannishtha went to the comedy reality show Comedy Nights Bachao. The concept of this show is to literally roast the guest. There is nothing wrong in the concept and Tannishtha had also prepared for getting roasted at the show. However, the happening there was not to her linking. There were some sarcastic comments on her skin colour. It should be noted that she is not white skinned, but of average skin colour. She didn’t remain silent and protested against this sort of racial attack.
In a country like India where the average Indians have darker skin colour than that of Tannishtha, the accusation of racial comment is definitely wrong. Tannishtha had taken the comment in an altogether different direction. There is nothing wrong in her resentment, but in all probability there is nothing as such racial.
