Mini Biography

Born on 19th March 1984 in Jamshedpur, Bihar, cusp-born (Pisces/Aries) Tanushree comes from a conservative Hindu Bengali family, and had her personality groomed according to strict social norms, resulting in her being shy and very introvert. Her dad's name is Tappan, who works for the Life Insurance Corporation of India.

She was employed with Oracle Institute for 3 months in event management and market survey and report making, her assignments included ramp, print campaign, videos, & commercials. She also was stage artist, doing concerts in various parts of India as well as abroad (Dubai).

This lack of confidence and shyness changed when she was enrolled in a boarding school in Pune where she would get a degree in Communications. This is where Tanushree literally found herself, ended up being more confident and open enough to to participate in the Miss India pageant in 2002 and 2003. Success eluded her as she could not make it to the final group of contestants.

She was not discouraged with her failures, but persisted and finally dusky Tanushree not only made herself eligible for the competition but was crowned Miss India, replacing Nikita Anand, at the Bandra-Kurla Complex on March 27, 2004. She was also crowned Miss Confidence and Miss Beautiful Smile. The participating judges included Sanjay Dutt, Fardeen Khan, Bipasha Basu, Ritu Beri, Sonu Nigam, Farah Khan, Madhavan, Saif Ali Khan & Hemant Trivedi.

She went to participate in Miss World and ended up amongst the 10 ten finalists.

Tanushree easily got used to the limelight and of having her photos taken, so much so that at the end of her tenure as Miss India, handing over the title to Amrita Thapar, she still felt the need to continue to be popular, and this is what motivated her to join Bollywood.

Her career as an actress started with 'Chocolate' in 2006, and then went on to star in 'Aashiq Banaya Aapne', '36 China Town', & 'Risk'. She has done a dancer number in 'Bhagam Bhaag', and also acted in a Telugu movie 'Veerabhadra'.
She even anchored a Bengali show on Televions titled 'Hoi Hullod'.

When not working, she is a a very lazy person, loves taking a long bath, treats herself to a 7 course meal, take an afternoon nap, wake up have dinner or go to a movie. She is not afraid to be wear swimsuits.

She has a degree in Commerce and had studied in Bombay based Brihan Maharashtrian College.

This charming and tall (5'7") actress, who weighs around 55 kilos, measures 31-26-35, wants her work to be appreciated, hopes to be eventually settled in Bollywood, and act in better films.

tele watch -talent shows

bharat ki shaan- shouts one promo; sangeet ka pratham vishwayudh is hurled at you as soon as you change the channel. and even sports channels are not a safe haven anymore -mandira bedi holds you by her noodle straps and beckons you to take up the dream job. make no mistake -this is peak season for the newest craze of indian television-talent hunt contests.
but lets not be ''holier than thou'' here- whatever their limitations -they are a welcome break from the neverending tedium of ekta kapoor's overdressed saas bahus. and confessedly -some of the shows are really throwing up some astonishing talent.lets talk about the most popular ones- SAREGAMAPA and INDIAN IDOL 3.

lets start with INDIAN IDOL 3- most probably the show with the highest viewership at the moment. it is close to its crescendo now -with only three contestants left- emon chatterji,prasant tamang and amit paul. after hoping week in and week out that ankita mishra is shown the door -she was finally booted this was both sad and surprising that javed akhtar preferred her to emon - javed ji i just want to ask -for all her thumkas and theatrics-all her midriff baring dresses- can she sing? let alone being one of the top four young talents of india- is she worthy of being in the top 400 even. punk and attitude are all very good -but lets not confuse the issue here- we are looking for a singer here- not the new face of indian my opinion -she should have never got the nov ahead of padmanav in the wild card round. anyways all's well that ends well - and its best for INDIAN IDOL that she's not going to win it -other wise it would have been one more case of the most popular show churing out the lease talked about singer -ala sandeep acharya.
moving on now to SAREGAMAPA -sangeet ka pratham vishwayudh;there are problems here too- but thankfully its a problem of plenty.the sheer amount of talent that this show has gathered together is just unbelievable -who will you pick and who will you leave out -on one hand there's the ethereal raja hassan who sings sufi numbers which even kailash kher will find hard to match up to,on the other hand there's the pcoket sized aneek -with a vocie and style any play back singer will die for.then there's sweet poonam -risen from dust literally -whose reindition of vandemataram has impressed even lataji. musharrat,amanat, sumedha, mouli - u cant leave out a single performance. this friday saw the sad ouster of harpreet deol -another wonderfully versatile singer and performer-but then -anyone who goes out from now on -with leave a trail of sighs and tears from all and sundry. saturday's episode was further enriched by the inimitable lalu prasad ji- who characteristically has declared that he will employ poonam in the railways if nothing else. i just cant think who will be eliminated next week -coz everyone performed so well this week.
