Tina confirms, “Yes I play a scientist from Mumbai, who is also a strong believer of God. My character has a good paradox. I play someone who strongly follows science as well as firmly believes in God.”
Much like Tina, Bollywood actresses Priyanka Chopra and Nimrat Kaur are also part of US shows ‘Quantico’ and ‘Homeland’ respectively. Ask Tina about this new trend in the industry, where actresses are readily doing TV shows based in abroad and the pretty petite says, “I just don’t know about it being a trend. It’s great that Priyanka and other actresses are also taking up such projects. But I am really glad that I got this opportunity. I think it’s just matter of luck that Sense8 happened to me.”
Tina, who is juggling between both the industries (Bollywood & Hollywood), says that she is trying to gain foothold in abroad and it is really great to be at both the places.
Talking about Sense8, Tina showers praises on the show, “There is juice in the script. It’s highly creative and explores various angles of the character. There is lot of thought-provoking stuff in the script. This particular role gave me lot of scope to perform. There wasn’t a formulaic way to enact it. We were given a free space by the director to perform. So it was creatively satisfying.”
The show Sense8, which has been created, written and executive-produced by The Matrix trilogy creators revolves around eight strangers from all around the world who become mentally and emotionally linked. Basically, they’re all able to experience what the others are feeling leading to plenty of drama being unfolded.
