dumb product needs an appealing face for it to be loved and opted among the line of similar brands. Our divas give them just that! 😉
Isha Talwar is one such lovely model and film actress who has made several ads of popular brands memorable with her distinctive smile! Isha is famously known as Aisha Rehman (Aysha Kutty to Keralites) for her role as a Muslim girl in the Mollywood movie Thattathin Marayathu (2012). The film won the debutante actress several awards including the Vanitha Film Best New Face Female 2012 and Ujala Asianet Film Best Star Pair (with actor Nivin Pauly).
Stardom in Mollywood is not as easy as could be gained in the jazzy Telugu and Tamil celluloids produced down in South; Malayalis make less commercial, more realistic, and highly performance-driven cinemas. Isha Talwar’s second Malayalam feature film was I Love Me (2012) only doubled her fanbase.
Tollywood spread a red carpet to welcome and capture Isha’s illume in the box office hit Gunde Jaari Gallanthayindhe (2013). Isha is soon to delight the Tamil audience with Thillu Mullu 2, a remake of Rajanikanth’s super hit Thillu Mulu (Gol Maal).
Some credit for her ease in front of the camera and natural emoting skills must be given to her father Vinod Talwar, a well-known Bollywood personality. As a child artist she has done few television serials, couple of movies, and several photo shoots for print ads. Her cuteness can be cherished in the film Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai, released way back in 2000.
The Mumbaikar has a degree in Economics from St. Xavier’s College. She is a trained contemporary and Kathak dancer and practices yoga to stay fit. Acting has been her avid passion and she has portrayed several characters in her college days. Professional modelling career of Isha began in 2008. She acted in one Itni Chhoti Baat, Itni Lambi Raat episode of teleserial Rishtey on Zee TV. No doubt her pretty smiley face, radiating skin and captivating eyes make her a diva!
Coming back to advertising, Isha has added sheen to – the otherwise mostly boring – over 40 regional and nationally aired TV commercials. Isha’s illuming presence can be felt in Bollywood-stars-promoting-brands like John Abraham’s VIP Skybags, Shahid Kapoor and Boman Irani’s Dulux Paint, and in Hrithik Roshan’s theme song of Just Dance. These are definite hits, however, her portrayal as an innocent, Cadbury Diary Milk Silk loving girl is the killer ad.
Some of the other famous brands adorned by Isha include Center Fresh Ocean, Dhathri Fair Skin Cream, Jayalakshmi Bridal Gagra Collection, Johns Umbrella, GRT Golden Seed, Josco Jewellers, Bacardi Music CD’s, Papa Don’t Preach, Pepsi, Stayfree Secure, Vivel Active Fairness Cream, Ujala Supreme, and many others.
