In her debut TV show ‘Airlines’, Bollywood actress Tulip Joshi is donning the role of a pilot and she says she has finally fulfilled her childhood dream of being a part of the aviation industry.
“I always wanted to become a pilot. That’s why I took up science in college. It was my childhood dream. So, for me it’s a dream come true moment to be part of this show. I got to fulfil my childhood dream,” Tulip told reporters at the launch of the show here.
The Delhi-set show is the journey of First Officer Ananya Rawat, played by Joshi, who tries to find her feet in the male-dominated aviation industry.
The 34-year-old actress said she did a lot of research about pilots and the aviation industry while preparing for the role. “I could not do any such real-life training but I did research a lot on the internet, especially the body language because that is the most important aspect,” she said.
Joshi, who has starred in films like ‘Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai’, ‘Matrubhoomi’, ‘Dhokha’ among others, said she had no hesitations about doing a TV show because the medium does not matter to her.

“For me the most important thing is role and the concept… Medium is not important. It is the same camera. When I was offered the script, I found the role to be interesting and challenging. I got a very positive vibe about the show and so I took it up,” the actress said, adding she has two film projects in the pipeline which she will begin shooting from next year.
‘Airlines’ also features VJ-turned-actor Yudhishthir, who plays the role of Captain Akash, Joshi’s co-pilot on the flight. The show, which has been written and conceptualised by ‘Kahaani’ fame writer Advaita Kala, is a weekly and will air from August 24 on Star Plus.
“The production of the show is very elaborate. So we could not make it a daily,” Nikhil Madhok, Sr VP of the channel said.
The show has been produced by Miditech, who have previously made Air Force-based show ‘Sara Akash’.
“We have roped in pilots to train the actors, shot in real airports in order to maintain the authenticity of the show. A special set modelled on Boeing 370 has also been created. We have also collaborated with Pixion for high-end VFX for the show,” Nikhil Alva from Miditech said.
