Film actor Tanuja embarks upon TV with 9X


MUMBAI: Veteran actress Tanuja is all set for a comeback, not in films but on television through 9X, the soon-to-be-launched Hindi entertainment channel from Indrani Mukerjea’s INX.

Tanuja will be seen on the small screen in a comic thriller titled Baban Bhai v/s Bimla Tai where she essays the role of Bimla Tai.

Speaking of her foray on the tube, Tanuja says, “TV is an exciting medium, which goes straight into the homes and is able to communicate directly to the people. It’s exciting to be on a comedy show because I like to do comedy, especially when there is so much sorrow in the world already. It’s nice to make people laugh.”

Tanuja started her film career with the movie Chhabili directed by her mother, Shobhna Samarth which was followed by films like Baharein Phir Bhi Aayengi, Haathi Mere Saathi, Mere Jeevan Saathi, Do Chor and Ek Baar Muskara Do amongst others.
