She is known for her unconventional roles in Bollywood, but what everyone doesn’t know is that she’s also a writer and a social worker. It was a happy coincidence that Lenskart got to chat with this lovely lady, Tisca Chopra. A Yoga enthusiast and an uber-chic doting mother, Tisca has been a part of some well-recognised roles such as the one in Taare Zameen Par.
Excerpts from our interview:
LK: With a busy schedule, how do you keep yourself so fit and your skin so glowing?
TC: I do Yoga every day. It’s my fitness mantra. I also have a two-year old who keeps me on my toes. But above all, eating well and staying happy is the most important thing in life.
LK: Do you love travelling? Tell us about your favourite travelling destinations.
TC: My husband is a pilot and I love travelling. I would say New York and London are my favourite places to go to. I absolutely love those two cities.
LK: What are some of the essentials you absolutely have to carry when you travel?
TC: Well, it’s my cell phone, extra batteries for my cell phone, mascara and lip-gloss.
LK: Do you have a style destination which you can always go back to?
TC: Style destination would have to be my stylists.
LK: What is your definition for style?
TC: Whatever looks comfy! See, style for me is all about feeling comfortable and feeling good.
LK: Tell us one fashion trend you’d like to do away with and why?
TC: Leggings, there’s no doubt in that. Leggings are just lazy dressing.
LK: Do you love sunglasses? Do you think they add to your style quotient?
TC: Yes, I love sunglasses. And they can absolutely add to your style quotient. But flaunting sunglasses inside is an absolute No-No. Sunnies are for the sun.
LK: Do you have any favourite pair?
TC: Vintage sunglasses are my favourite. There’s a vintage shop call ‘Sunny Sun’ in New York where they have some of the most adorable pairs.
LK: Do you follow any fashion trends?
TC: Not particularly. I have a strong sense of style. But with summers here, vibrant colours are what I’m looking forward to.
LK: Do you have any fashion fetish we don’t know about?
TC: Well, for me, it’s all about ‘tight at the waist’.
LK: Which of your features do you think best describes you?
TC: My eyelashes. And to accentuate them, I would put on some mascara. I’m also mad about mascaras.
LK: If a 12 or 13-year-old comes up to you for style tips, what would you say?
TC: Do nothing! Staying natural is the most beautiful. My two-year old often comes up to me asking for nail polish or lipstick. Like, “Mummy nail polish”“Mummy lipstick”. So, I can imagine how a thirteen year old will be like.
So much simplicity with so much fame! Isn’t that amazing?
