Tara Sutaria made her big Bollywood debut earlier this year under the able guidance of Karan Johar in Student Of The Year 2. Now, with her second film Marjaavaan up for release, we cornered her for a candid chat where she reveals how her journey has been so far - how she's battled against a few odds to reach where she is. She also explained why it's difficult for an outsider like her to fit in at Bollywood parties. 

Tara Sutaria gets candid about braving criticism right from an early age. "When you perform and you are young, a lot of people don't take that very kindly. They want to criticise you in a certain way which is very detrimental for your growth. I have been performing since I was 3-4 so that's quite a few years of being a professional. In that way, some occasions have been annoying where people have said things like, 'Why did she choose to do this?' But I met Karan and then SOTY 2 happened and my outlook changed."

In her Untold Story, she reveals how she was called anorexic by some and how the same people criticised her for putting on a few extra kilos for Marjaavaan. Tara reveals, "People do say hurtful things every now and then. Some people called me anorexic when I did SOTY 2. A little while later, I put on 2-3 kilos and they were like she's put on weight. That's something I have come to terms with it. It used to bother me a lot in the beginning."
