Tanushree was born in March 2009 to electrical contractor Uday Kumar and homemaker Sandhya. She learnt dance when she was three and a half years old. She has 269 stage shows across the state to her credit. She is learning Bharatanatyam, hip-hop and semi-classical dance at the Mukuntha Kripa Music and Fine Arts, Udupi.
Her father Uday said, "She did not go for yoga classes. She felt yoga is easy as she knew dance movements well and her body is flexible. Five months ago, Kushi, a girl from Mysuru, set a record in ’Niralamba Poorna Chakrasana’ by doing it 15 times in a minute. I casually asked my daughter if she could do it. Without practice, she did it nine times. So I decided to give her practice. To break Kushi’s record, Tanu had to perform 16 times, but she done it 19 times in a minute. I’m proud of her."
He added, "I wanted her to set a Guinness World Record, but they don’t have this category and neither does the Limca Book of Records. With the help of a friend, I filled the application for he Golden Book of World Records. The total expense for this event is about Rs 75,000."
Tanushree said, "I want to become a dance and yoga teacher. I learnt yoga through YouTube. My parents download the videos. My mother and Shobith Shetty, Dharmastala Ayurvedic College, Pareeka, gave me guidance in yoga. My parents are ready to do everything for me and my sister Ruthu. I want to make my family proud."
