Actor Karishma Tanna, who has a cameo in the biopic on Sanjay Dutt, says the experience of working with director Rajkumar Hirani and actors Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal was a lot of fun, courtesy their jokes and pranks.

“Ranbir, Raju Sir and Vicky used to crack jokes and pulled my leg with a poker face. I don’t know them that well to know whether they were lying or making a story up. I used to happily listen to those stories and after some days, I would realise that was all made up.”

“I really like light-hearted and humourous people. Ranbir, Raju Sir and Vicky were a lot of fun on set,” Karishma told IANS over phone from Bengaluru where she launched the apparel collection of Skechers Performance apparel range.

The 34-year-old actress, who first featured in the television show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, later went on to do other projects on the small screen. She ventured into Bollywood in 2005 with Dosti: Friends Forever. She also did a Kannada movie titled I Am Sorry Mathe Banni Preethsona.

In 2013, came yet another Bollywood outing for her — Grand Masti.

While the audience has been seeing Karishma for years altogether, she feels her appearance on reality TV show Bigg Boss 8 in 2014 gave them a chance to know her better.

Asked if the show gave a boost to her career, Karishma said: “I wouldn’t say it boosted my career, but people have known me better after ‘Bigg Boss’. People knew who Karishma Tanna is always, but through ‘Bigg Boss’, they know me very well — what kind of a personality I have, what do I do in the morning and what do I do in the evening, what type of clothes I wear, how do I do my hair, how do I do make-up.”
