Tisca Chopra is one name that rings our head when we look for an artist who tends to own a major space of a film most of the time, whatever role she plays.
She has amazed us with her versatile performances to date and continues to do so with her new series, Dahan.
Chopra’s effortless performances have often been compared to those of Meryl Streep, where even her skin seems to vibrate with the emotion of the scene. Fans of Chopra and even critics have often called her India’s Streep because you forget the actor and only remember the character Chopra plays.
Chopra’s diverse roles have won her several accolades for films named Taare Zameen Par, Rahasya and Chutney. Her chameleon like shifts of character have won her a lot of praise and nominations for her films like Firaaq and 10ml Love.
All of her performances have been etched in memory .. be it Maya Awasthi in Taare Zameen Par, Anushka Narang include in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, Ankur Arora Murder Case, Good Newwz and or even the recently released Jugg Jugg Jeeyo.
And now Chopra is back as District Magistrate, Avni Raut, headlining the Disney Plus Hot Star supernatural thriller Dahan. Many are comparing Tisca’s, subtle and nuanced performance as having shades of the late Irrfan Khan. Dahan gives full play to Chopra’s versatility, who is, by turns determined, vulnerable, passionate and tender.
Getting deep into her characters and doing everything it takes to deliver impeccable performances, fans and critics call Tisca Chopra India’s answer to Meryl Streep and we have to agree.
