Karishma Tanna, who is gearing up for her upcoming web series Scoop,  has recalled how her father always wished for a son and didn’t see her face for a month after her birth.

Karishma Tanna Reveals Her Dad Wanted A Boy, Wasn’t Happy When She Was Born

Karishma Tanna stated in an interview with Siddharth Kannan that the revelation was made by her mother when Karishma was old enough to understand. She said that her dad “wasn’t happy” when Karishma was born because, like many Gujarati families, there was pressure from the family, and he wanted a son. She admitted that for a week, her mother had not seen her face. She continued by talking about her dad’s reaction, who hadn’t ‘come to the hospital to see me for a month.’

The actor went on to say that they believed a son could carry on their lineage, earn more money, and make them superior. Her mom had two daughters. The two sisters used to receive “second-class treatment” from her grandfather and grandma. The actor stated that this strengthened her, “I will show them what a boy does can also be done by a girl.”

When her mother told her, it broke her heart. Tanna continued. When speaking about how her father felt at the time, the actor revealed that it broke him from the inside as well. However, how could he tell his family that he “liked girl child?” she continued. Following this, she made the decision and told her father that she would fulfil her father’s expectations.

The last time we saw Karishma Tanna, it was in the web series Hush Hush. Juhi Chawla and Soha Ali Khan both appeared in it. Her upcoming show is Hansal Mehta’s Scoop. In the show, she plays the journalist Jagruti Pathak.  Watch the trailer here.

The show is scheduled to release on Netflix on June 2.
