Lianne Texeira to play the lead in Culture Machine’s ‘Alisha’

MUMBAI: Lianne Texeira is not a new name in fashion industry. After featuring in commercials for a number of leading brands such as L’Oreal, Vivel, MTV and Channel V among many others, Lianne is now all set to make her acting debut in the online entertainment space with ‘Alisha’, which will air on Culture Machine’s lifestyle channel Blush starting December 4, 2015.

Lianne plays the role of 24-year-old fashion blogger turned investigator Alisha. A Goan Bombayite dwelling in Bandra, she is young, spunky and urban girl next door and has a Sherlockian eye for detail. Although, fashion is her occupation of choice, her attitude is of a detective. Bohemian at heart and lover of fashion, music and adventure, Alisha mixes work with pleasure by being a consulting detective in fashion industry. Stylish in every sense, Alisha follows and sets the fashion trends on one hand, while solving small time crime mysteries in the fashion industry on the other. Alongside Alisha is her best friend forever Tania Rampal aka Tanny played by Sara Hashmi of Dil Dhadhakne Do fame. Tanny is Alisha’s childhood friend and a loyal partner in everything, be it gossips or chocolates.

Speaking about Alisha, Lianne Texeira said, “I am extremely excited about Alisha. It was a lot of fun playing the character more so because I am fashion blogger in real life as well, hence it felt like an extension to my own self on screen.  I feel Alisha will form great connect with the viewers owing to her urban girl next door image topped with presence of mind to solve mysteries. It has been great working with the team at Culture Machine and I hope it won’t be long before Alisha makes a comeback with Season 2!” 

Alisha is a crime investigative series set in the backdrop of fashion industry. Season 1 of the series will have 10 episodes shot in smooth and fast paced narratives. Each episode will revolve around a criminal activity with Alisha sifting through the clues in her own style while continuing to hob nob with crème de la crème of the fashion industry.
