Tulip Joshi in a new avtaar


Mumbai: Tulip Joshi, who essayed the role of the girl-next-door — Anjali in Yash Chopra’s Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and then wowed critics in a totally de-glamourised role as Kalki in Mathrubhumi, is being seen in a new avtaar these days.

Tulip scorched the ramp again reminiscent of her earlier days for Nisha Jamval fashion show at Amara organized by Viren Shah last week-end. The concept of the show was Phoenix India and had celebrities from different walks of life strutting the ramp. Tulip looked resplendent and enchanting and had the crowd raving about her.

Tulip says, “It was exciting after a long hiatus from the ramp. It’s been ages since I last walked the ramp. It was déjàvu!! I loved every bit of it.” After her hard hitting performance in Mathrubhumi, Tulip is all set to sizzle on the screen in a glamorous avatar in her forthcoming film Hostel & Shoonya set to release this winter.

“I am so excited to be doing commercial cinema again. Though I am proud of Mathrubhumi as it gave me an opportunity to showcase my acting skills at the start of my career, I always relished doing mainstream films. I want to play roles that would suit my age. Meri Yaar Ki Shaadi and Dil Maange More were essentially commercial films and I had a blast shooting for it,” she adds.

Speaking on the kind of roles that she would like to take up in the future, she says, “I would love to do roles that the youth would relate to. I’m quite young and have a long way to go. I am also excited about my forthcoming films that will project a glamorous image which is my real life image. Infact everyone teases me that I am essentially a fashion child.”

“Bollywood has changed so much and with the influx of designers in the industry, the look of the films have undergone a sea change. I would really love to do light hearted campus capers that will appeal to the youth. Even one of my forthcoming films deals with the issues of the youth,” she adds.
