As the actor prepares for the second season of her TV show, she says she wants to do films and ads as well
Motherhood kept her away from showbiz for a while, but now Tara Sharma is ready for her second innings on the small screen – she is returning with the second season of her show The Tara Sharma Show – Diaries of a New Mum. The actor, who is married to ad film producer Roopak Saluja, even plans to take up endorsements and films once again.
“Our TV show has been a great way for me to be with the kids and work at the same time and as season one was a big success, we are now working on season two,” said Tara, a mother of two – Zen and Kai, three and one-year-old, respectively.
The debut season of her show was aired on Imagine TV, which has now gone off air. But it is not known on which channel the second season will be broadcast. “You will soon see lots more of The Tara Sharma Show – Diaries of a New Mum on TV and digitally. Also, now that Kai and Zen are a bit older, I’m starting to look at doing endorsements, events and films again, if of course, the role is good and it works around their timings,” she said.
Tara, who made her acting debut with 2002 film Om Jai Jagadish, went on to do films like Masti, Page 3 and Khosla Ka Ghosla. She married Saluja in 2007 and ever since her family has been her first priority. Tara loves spending time with her kids and taking them on holidays. These days, she is especially excited about making the boys understand the importance of preserving nature. In the run-up to the World Environment Day on June 5, the 35-year-old is promoting Kissanpur, an endeavour to let kids and their parents experience nature in the purest form at a farm, created in the middle of Mumbai with soil, seeds and over 7,000 tomato plants.
“I like the fact that it encourages kids to learn the importance of nature and natural foods in a fun, non-preachy way. Now that I am a mum of two, I truly value activities where we as parents can also participate and spend quality time with our kids. Children love making things with their own hands and planting fascinates them, as they can actually watch something come to life and grow,” she said.
