Celebrated television actress Karishma Tanna will be seen in the role of a police officer in the upcoming web series Hush Hush. While in the recent past, Shefali Shah, with her skilled acting in the web series Delhi Crime, took the on-screen image of a female cop to the next level altogether, Karishma says she does not fear the comparison, if at all it happens by the audience. 

The actress was present at the trailer launch of the show along with her other co-stars - Soha Ali Khan, Shahana Goswami, Karishma Tanna, Kritika Kamra. The creator of the show Tanuja Chandra was also present at the event along with the producer Vikram Malhotra, the head of the production house Abundantia Entertainment. 

While interacting with the media, the actress was asked if she fears any comparison that might happen with her character of a female cop, with Shefali Shah's performance who also played an investigating officer in the Netflix original show Delhi Crime. 

Karishma replied, "I do not feel the pressure by any comparison with the great works of those celebrated actors, be it Shefali Shah, Jaideep Ahlawat and others. I rather feel inspired by their work. My character in the show is really that of a strong woman and the story is very different. I keep watching their work, observing body language and the performances, so it really is a very positive space. I have no pressure, but excitement." 

When asked why she looks so intimidating on-screen as a cop, Karishma replied, "I think that should be the first impression. A cop should come across as someone intimidating. The moment we hear the word police, we feel fear, right? So, for me looking the part and creating that impression was very important. I have tried to play the character sincerely." 

Recalling her first meeting with the creator of the show Tanuja Chandra, Karishma said, "When I met her, she said to me that I look quite glamorous and I am pretty tall. I have a strong screen presence. So, she wanted me to get rid of all the glam. I was quite excited and said yes, let's work on it. Since then, from my body language, posture, and look - we have worked on everything. I did extensive homework. I am really happy that it is my first time playing a cop and being directed by Tanuja ma'am." 

Hush Hush releases on Prime Video on September 22.
