Tisca Chopra: Frida Kahlo continues to inspire me in so many ways

Mumbai– Actress Tisca Chopra on Wednesday shared a post saying Mexican painter Frida Kahlo continues to inspire her in many ways.

Tisca posted a picture in her post dressed in a Frida Kahlo-printed saree on Instagram.

“It was Ms Frida Kahlo’s 114th birthday yesterday.. I count the years and what I wouldn’t have done to meet her,” Tisca wrote.

She added: “#FridaKahlo continues to inspire me in so many ways.. her existential search for identity, her toughness and joie de vivre in the face of pain and heartbreak…But beyond it all is her absolute defiance in letting her gender define her identity, her fluidity with her sexuality� Such is my #Fridamania that I had to have this #Frida sari,” Tisca wrote as the caption.

Tisca came out with her book “What’s Up With Me?” in March. She was last seen on the big screen in the 2019 film “Good Newwz”.

Talking about life in Bollywood being fastpaced and how it takes a toll, Taapsee tells IANS: “It is a very competitive industry, just like other industries. Just that our competition comes in front of the camera for the world to judge. So, it becomes slightly more stressful, but everyone knows about it when they get into it.”

She agrees it is a part and parcel of an actor’s life.

“It’s not like somebody forced us into it. We were aware of the fact that we will be in front of the camera and people would want to know more and more about us, so we were aware of that when we entered. So, something in return of that unconditional love we get from the audience is a price we pay. That attracts stress and it’s a part of every competitive industry,” the actress said.

“There is competition in every industry. There is no industry without competition and stress today,” summed up Taapsee, whose latest film “Haseen Dillruba” released on Netflix recently.
