Tanisha was not so lucky. She debuted in 2003 with a horror movie ‘Sssshhh’
that did not do too well. Her other
films Popcorn Khao Mast Ho Jao, Tango
Charlie, One Two Three, Kantri and Tum Milo To Sahi also did not do too
well. She was a part of Ram Gopal Varma’s
projects, Sarkar and Sarkar Raj.
Neel and Nikki, which co-starred her then-boyfriend Uday Chopra but even that
movie that was high on sleaze but low on content, flopped badly. She however, found success in a Tamil film
called ‘Unnale Unnale’, which also
earned a place in the nominations for the Best Debut Actress.
Tanisha and actor Uday Chopra were dating each for quite some time, two years to be specific, before they separated. This was following rumors of Tanisha two-timing Uday with Upen Patel, during the time when the engagement was being planned out. Years later, Uday Chopra found a mate in Nargis Fakhri while Tanisha is still single.
