MUMBAI: Shweta Tiwari’s daughter Palak Tiwari is all set for her highly-awaited acting debut with Vishal Mishra’s horror thriller ‘Rosie: The Saffron Chapter’. The film also stars Vivek Oberoi, Arbaaz Khan, and Mallika Sherawat. Recently, Palak spoke at length about her debut and more. Read on.
When asked why Palak chose Rosie as her debut, she that she always wanted to start her career with horror film. “People assumed that I will make my acting debut in television because of my mom. But, I chose this project because firstly it's based on a true story. That's instinctively piqued my interest. And then, I thought it's quite peculiar to start with. I wanted to start with horror, physiological film, something a little unconventional. I wanted to start my career with something I believed in from the script perspective. And, I feel we always have time to do rom-com,” she shared.
On being compared to her mother Shweta, Palak said, “I will not call it fear. I would say pride more than anything. I will feel proud to be her daughter. That has never really stopped or scared me, I feel very comfortable and I am okay with the comparisons as I have realized it's inevitable. As long as I am not competing with my mother, she will never compete with me. She is my biggest cheerleader. That's all that matters.”
Is her mother is okay if she is required to do intimate scenes in movies? The actress explained, “She (Shweta Tiwari) is not controlling like that. The one thing I love about my mother is that she keeps telling me that this is your career, your decisions. I feel she trust me a lot. So, she told me it’s your career and you are smart enough to make your own call. But, I do go to her if I am at crossroads and she does suggest what she thinks is the best.”
