[RxPG] Mumbai, May 15 - Actress Tisca Chopra, last seen as a volatile daughter-in-law in STAR Plus' political soap 'Sarrkar', is pulling out all stops to play an alcoholic in Sanjay Gupta's 'Alibaug'.

The film is a great opportunity for Tisca to prove her acting skills.

'Even if Gupta had told me to pick any role, I'd have opted for the alcoholic Naina's part. It's a role that requires a great deal of preparation,' Tisca told IANS.

She isn't much of a drinker in real life though.

'I'm a social drinker. And to play someone who can't hold her drinks won't be easy for me.'

Tisca plans to consult someone who has been through a similar addiction.

'I'm myself addicted to chocolates. So I know what craving is all about. I've been attending Naseeruddin Shah's workshops for the past year. He has been doing this intense workshop for seven-eight actors. And I feel I'm enriched and at the same time famished as an actor.'

It looks like method acting is the order of the day. Abhishek Bachchan recently put on kilos to look like a prosperous businessman in 'Guru'.

For 'Shootout At Lokhandwala', many of the actors spent time with real-life gangsters to feel their viewpoint.

And to play a Tamil woman in Rohit Roy's 'Rice Plate', Bollywood's most seasoned method actor Shabana Azmi has been spending time with women of that region.
