Tanishaa Mukerji is one such starlet in the Hindi film industry, who despite belonging to a true film family of highly successful actors, couldn’t make that much of a mark for herself.

Tanishaa Mukerji reflects on feeling insecure over her mother, Tanuja’s ill health

In a recent interaction with ETimes, Tanishaa Mukerji talked about her mother and veteran actress, Tanuja’s well-being. For quite some time now, the senior actress has often made headlines for being hospitalised due to geriatric issues. Talking about them, Tanishaa remarked that she has been extra insecure about her mother, ever since her father and filmmaker, Shomu Mukherjee has passed away. Expressing her feelings, she said:

“Mom is amazing now! But yes, of course it makes me insecure. I was inside the Bigg Boss house when she got this disease called diverticulitis. But now it is over after her operation in 2018. But there have been other issues because of age. In fact, when I was doing an act for my dad on Jhalak…my mom was in the hospital. It was the worst feeling. I have lost my dad and that is the reason why I am more insecure about my mom.”
