Rising star: Madhurima Tuli is on the roll


Launch Vehicle

I am playing Jessica in Cigarette Ki Tarah; she's a bold, beautiful and confident girl from Goa. She hails from a very rich family, and is arrogant and vain about her beauty. But she is also very kind and endearing, and wants someone who would love her immensely. There are certain twists and turns as the story progresses, which I can't reveal right now.

Casting Coup

I actually did a film for an NGO in MP. There, I met an actor who introduced me to the makers of Cigarette Ki Tarah. Initially, I was a little doubtful about the prospect of the film, Cigarette Ki Tarah. But the story and music is very good. I love the songs. I did not to audition for the role, because the actor who introduced me to the makers, had seen me act. So, he had put in a good word for me. I hope that they have liked my work! It also depends on the reactions of the audience.

Stepping Stone

Before Cigarette Ki Tarah, I was doing a Kannada film for Mukta Arts, which is going to release in January. There's a song which needs to be recorded. Before films, I have done many advertisements like Godrej, Fiama di Wills and Carbonn, and have been the face of many brands. I have also done an international project called Lethal Commission which is on YouTube. It was a short film which premiered in Las Vegas.

First Shot

I was confused and nervous, did not know what was happening around me when I gave my first shot. There were so many people around me. For me, it was a difficult because my films were taking time to release. Even my South film was delayed. So I was confused and wondering whether this film will release. But now I am very happy and excited about it.
