An actress and singer who has slowly but steadily made her place in the industry. Tara is a pure artist with a melodious voice and graceful dancing & acting skills. Her transition from TV to movies was quite smooth, all thanks to her grind in her early years. On top of that, she has set social media on fire with her cute & glamorous pictures and gained millions of followers.
Tara Sutaria has been a confident performer since childhood. She has been performing on stage as a singer since she was 13. She appeared in two reality shows which set things in motion for her to be a VJ and a Disney India Star. All her performances have fetched her appreciation. But that confidence lasts only on the stage. If you throw her in a party with people, she gets shy & awkward.
Tara has always wanted to make her career in singing. During her teenage years, she was performing in a musical drama that she realized she enjoyed acting too. So in her college days, Tara was at the Dharma Productions office and chatting with Karan Johar. He knew of her so asked her to sing for him, and when she did, he told her that he was in the process of making SOTY2 and he’d like her to be a part of the film. The script was ready a few months later, and she went for the auditions and screen test. Feeling extremely nervous about the results, she couldn’t control her excitement when she finally heard she was selected.
Since Tara Sutaria was a known face, she was offered many roles during her college days. Her parents wanted her to complete her studies before entering the Bollywood industry. When she met Karan Johar and discussed the same, he also advised her to focus on her education and finish her studies. He also kept her hopes high by telling her she would surely make it in films with her beautiful looks & impeccable talents.
Later, she was launched by Dharma Productions and had already signed three movies within her debut year. She was even offered Kabir Singh to play the part of Preeti, but by then, she was already working on two projects. She also didn’t agree with the misogynistic tone of the film, so she had to let it go. In the industry, she considers Karan as her mentor and a friend she can lean on. She feels comfortable calling him at any hour and seeking his guidance.
Tara has been ruthlessly trolled ever since the poster for SOTY2 was released. She was called anorexic & was body-shamed. Since then, she has been a target of trolls on social media for her clothes and personal habits. Once she went to watch her debut film in the theatre, and she came on the screen. Two girls sitting by her side laughed hard at her acting. Tara did not give any reaction when the girls realized she was sitting with them. She just walked out quietly. Being a human, Tara does find the trolls to be extremely ruthless and hurtful. But then she realizes that she chose to be a public figure, so it’s now a part of her life. She needs to be thick-skinned to stay unbothered.
Tara Sutaria has been a part of the industry for a long time now. To make it till here, the multitalented star had to pursue all her passion with the right attitude. Whether it was going for dance and singing classes or preparing for performances, Tara kept her work above her desires to go for fun & frolic. Tara learned to see her work with reverence and avoided any sort of negligence or procrastination towards her art. All of this is helping her today to be disciplined and focus on her work in the industry. She’s punctual, focussed, and driven to make it big.
Tara’s performances in the movies may have garnered her more trolling than appreciation, but it is undeniable that Tara is a star. Love her or hate her, she has made sure that her audience cannot ignore her. She has the discipline and fire to make it big in the industry, both, as an actor and as a singer.
