Tanishaa Mukerji belongs to the prominent Mukherjee-Samarth family of Bollywood. She is the daughter of Shomu Mukherjee and Tanuja and the sister of Kajol. Just like her elder sister, Tanishaa had joined Bollywood in 2003 with her debut film, Sssshhh... In her 19 years long career, she has worked in films like Neal 'n' Nikki, Sarkar, Sarkar Raj and reality shows, Bigg Boss 7 and Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 7.
Over the years, Tanishaa Mukerji has been linked with many celebrities from late Sidharth Shukla to her co-star, Uday Chopra. We have also seen her dating her co-contestant, Armaan Kohli inside Bigg Boss 7. However, her relationships never turned into an ever-after. Her fans are eager to know about her personal life and her latest pictures have sparked rumours about her secret wedding.
On January 3, 2021, Tanishaa Mukerji shared a series of pictures on her IG handle and her bichuas sparked the rumours of her secret wedding. In the photos, Tanishaa looked gorgeous in a powder-blue crochet plunging neckline top. However, the picture, where she flaunted her feet as she laid on a sunbed on a beach caught everyone’s attention. Tanishaa sported toe rings on her feet, making her fans wonder about her secret wedding.
For the unversed, bichua, i.e., a toe ring is the symbol of a married woman in Hindu culture. Therefore, Tanishaa’s toe ring clad feet created curiosity amongst her fans. While one user commented, “You are married?” another one wrote, “R you married? @tanishaamukerji Why r you wearing bichiya?”
In an interview with ETimes TV, Tanishaa had talked about freezing her eggs when she was 39. She had said:
"I wanted to freeze my eggs at the age of 33! At that time, when I went to my doctor (who finally froze my eggs now), it is funny but she stopped me from doing so at that time. While she told me it takes a toll on your body, she advised I should do it when I have no hope of conceiving a baby. It’s a personal choice. And today, it is perfectly ok to not have children. Adopt, there’s enough in this world."
Speaking of why is it okay to not have children and not get married, Tanishaa Mukerji had added:
"More people need to go out and talk about this. It’s ok for women to not have children. That’s not the only calling in your life. It’s ok to not get married, not be in a relationship and not define yourself with a man beside you. Back in the days, my grandmother and women those days didn’t define themselves with the man. We have gone wrong somewhere in the middle. My grandmother was a strong, amazing personality, who never defined herself with a man."
Tanishaa Mukerji had also revealed that because of the egg freezing procedure, she had put on a lot of weight. During the procedure, a lot of Progesterone was pumped inside her body, which had made her bloated. Tanishaa was extremely happy to have frozen her eggs but she had also wanted to become fit again. So, she had started the hardcore workout regime. Being a physically fit person always, Tanishaa knew the diet that suits her body. And finally, Tanishaa had lost oodles of weight to become fit again!
We hope Tanishaa clarifies the speculations soon!
