Tanishaa Mukherji Talks About Comparisons With Sister, Kajol And Why She Didn't Make It Big Like Her

Bollywood actress, Kajol is famous for her witty nature and charming personality. The gorgeousness took forward her mother, Tanuja's legacy. While she is popular, her sister, Tanishaa Mukherji never made big in the industry like her. But Tanishaa never took it to her heart. There were times when the media and gossipmongers made comparisons between the two sisters, but they never really took it to their heart.

For the unversed, the Mukerji sisters make sure to celebrate each others' victories and wish each other on important occasions. Last year, on Kajol's birthday, Tanishaa had written a cute note that could be read as:

"Happy birthday, my darling sis! Here’s to too many mad fun moments. You’ve been my biggest teacher, and I love you for it! Have the best year, baby."

Recently, in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Tanishaa talked about the constant comparisons she faces with her sister, Kajol. The actress said that there is no such thing as comparisons between the two as they had different journeys. She also shared that they never thought about it and they never even compare each other. She said:

"She had a different journey. We don’t compare each other. The comparison has been in the mind of the public. When you are a newcomer with privilege, they don’t get a chance to make too many mistakes. They don’t get a chance to learn on the job."

Tanishaa also talked about the downfall of being from a filmy family. She talked about the constant scrutiny one receives. She shared that some have it easy while for some it doesn't work. She also shared that Bollywood is all about money. Tanishaa added that if he/she can bring the money you are going to be successful otherwise not. Tanishaa also talked about not making it big like her sister, Kajol and their mother, Tanuja. She said:

"You have to have a strong sense of self. You have to have a strong sense of who you are, and that person will come out on screen. Those are the people who will actually make it, those who have a strong sense of self. Maybe I didn’t make it, because I didn’t have that."

Coming to Kajol and Tanishaa's bond, the sisters have always supported each other. In an interview with India Forum, Kajol talked about her sister, Tanishaa's Bigg Boss experience and heaped praises for her. She had said:

"I was just glad she was back. The first thing we said was, Shit! You've starved yourself! Issko koi paratha khilao' She came back half her size, looking so frail. (Laughs) To which she shrieked, 'Please no more parathas!'"

Well, Tanishaa is definitely a strong woman as she knows how to handle success and failure! What do you think?
