Tena Desae started her career with offbeat films like YEH FAASLEY, SAHI DHANDHE GALAT BANDEY and THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL. However, when it came to her first out and out commercial film TABLE NO.21, she was particularly thrilled when she realised that her co-stars were no less than Rajeev Khandelwal and Paresh Rawal.

“When I found out about the cast, I was very happy. Since the film is being driven by three major characters, it was important for me to have other actors as really strong. Otherwise the film would have fallen flat if the characters didn’t bring the story alive. Honestly, we could have been scre$$d of not for an able cast,” says Tena in an animated tone.
Fortunately though, her fears were unfounded.

“Rajeev has a strong history of films. His AAMIR and SHAITAN have been cult and even otherwise he has done some hardcore intense stuff, case in point being his television show ‘Sach Ka Saamna’. As for Paresh, he can do anything. I welcomed the fact that they were there since I depended on their brilliance to perform well. When they were around, I was all the more confident,” admits Tena.
Now here is hoping that her confidence indeed pays off when the film releases all over this Friday.
