Tanishaa Mukherjee's illustrious family, mom Tanuja, sister Kajol and brother-in-law Ajay Devgn, have made peace with Tanishaa's controversial and colourful presence on 'Bigg Boss'. To quash all rumours suggesting all is not well between the family and Tanishaa, they've now sent a letter and collage of pictures of the family to Tanishaa as a goodwill gesture.
Says a source from the channel Colors, "Tanishaa had not received a shred of intimation from her family since she entered 'Bigg Boss' house. This led to speculation that the family was far from happy with Tanishaa's conduct. On Thursday, Tanishaa finally got a letter signed by her mom and sister and a collage of family pictures. This ended her period of uncertainty regarding her family's response to her conduct in the house."
A reliable source close the Mukherjee family says the family was fed up of speculation regarding Tanishaa's conduct. "The family has never objected to the way every member leads his or her life. Tanujaji has always given her two daughters full freedom to do whatever they wish to. Tanujaji herself used to be extremely unconventional in her heydays. If her daughter doesn't follow the demure and submissive track, why would she object?"
Before entering 'Bigg Boss' house, Tanishaa had told this writer that she was not in the game for money or fame. "I am asked if I am going in to 'Bigg Boss' to gain some attention. I don't mean to sound arrogant. But the family that I come from (mom Tanuja, aunt Nutan, grandmother Shobhana Samarth, sister Kajol, brother-in-law Ajay Devgn) do you think I need to try to get visibility for myself?"
Tanishaa also spoke about the family's disapproval of her decision to go into 'Bigg Boss'. "My mom is very protective. Like any mother, she's concerned about how I'll cope inside the 'Bigg Boss' house. I am the baby of the family. So mom worries even more about me. She was like, 'Baby, will you be okay?' But parents have to let their children grow up sometime. I cannot be a baby all my life. I hope I've matured over the years. Now I am looking forward to coping with all the excitement tension and squabble inside the 'Bigg Boss' house.
This is one of Indian television's most popular shows. I want to see what makes the show tick. You know, the true test of a person's character is when he or she is faced with adversity. I want to come out of this with dignity".
