Tabu, who was last seen in Andhadhun with Ayushmann Khurrana and Radhika Apte now reveals that she wants to work with veteran lyricist-poet Gulzar with whom she has worked in films like Maachis and Hu Tu Tu.
“I have a message for Gulzarji, Please make a film soon and cast me in it and if you don’t want to take me as an actor, then please take me as your assistant,” Tabu said on 92.7 BIG FM’s “BIG MJ of the Week”s show. On the show, the Chandni Bar actor turned into an RJ (radio jockey) and talked about her films, roles and also shared other information on her career.
Tabu, is currently busking on the success of her thriller film AndhaDhun, which is a rare combination of mystery, thriller, romance and comedy. She had a dark shade role in the film which she played really well and was applauded for. This is not the only film where Tabu played a negative role, she was seen playing the role of an antagonist in films like Not only AndhaDhun, she also Haider and Fitoor which again was appreciated by the audience.
Talking about playing dark characters, Tabu said, “I find grey character more engaging and interesting. It is a different journey altogether as you keep discovering different things about the character as you go.” According to the actor, portraying intense characters in itself is like romance. “I don’t know if you would actually call it being stereotyped because of the roles that I have played, but I don’t think it is such a bad thing,” she added.
“I believe, if that is something that is being identified with me and if people know that they can identify you with something then it is a huge achievement. I don’t think anything is wrong with that. I am so glad these roles came to me and that people associate them with me,” Tabu said appreciating the love received from the audience.
