Open Chest Interview with Tena Desae

Jul 16, 2013

Jay-Z’s famous quote: “I’m not a businessman; I’m a business, man!” has often been quoted, but has never been as fitting as it is with Indian model-turned-actress, Tena Desae. This statuesque Piscean beauty, who stands at 5’ 6”, has consciously carved her niche to international status in a matter of a few short years since entering the industry.

First, as an in-demand model, Tena garnering an impressive portfolio of more than 100 multi-national ad campaigns. That was followed by an enamoured acting career, where she worked with veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher in her debut flick. Then she bagged a principle role in the Hollywood movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opposite a stellar ensemble cast including Dame Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson and Dev Patel to boot. It’s only her third movie to date.

I had the opportunity to chat with her about how a business management degree major got involved in the fashion and entertainment business, how she managed to land an international movie of this caliber so early on in her career, and why she’s still single!
