Tisca Chopra, who rose to fame with her performance in the Aamir Khan film Taare Zameen Par, is gearing up to direct her first feature-length film and confirms it is a thriller. But being a first time director does not worry her nor is she nervous about going behind the camera. Talking about the pressure of directing a film, Tisca Chopra said in an interview, “I don’t know, I am just doing my work and I am not thinking about the pressure right now. But yeah, I think it is the next logical step forward for me, I am very happy and excited.”
Tisca Chopra also confirmed the genre of the film, she said, “It is a thriller.” While Tisca has not had much luck in films, she has made her mark in theatre. She has also been seen in several short films some which have also gone on to win awards. The actress admits that the current climate is great for making thrilling and different kind of cinema.
“As someone who is living in India, I get to see such films only when I am travelling aboard. MAMI (Mumbai Film Festival) and NatGeo are doing a great job, by bringing unique films to India because there are so many people, who want to watch different stuff that are not run-of-the-mill or predictable. We can watch movies and shows on Netflix, Amazon and similar platforms but it is a different experience to watch a film in a theatre with proper acoustic, proper sound and of course with other people. It is a very collective experience, I’d love that.”
