Tabu is regarded as one of the most accomplished actors in India. She is also known for enacting strong female protagonists and has won critical acclaim for her wide-ranging performances.
Asked how she selects her projects,Tabu said,”It has always varied for different projects. I have done films with completely new directors, with no clue about their vision…Chandni Bar, Maqbool – I am not sure what drives me. She further expressed, “I want to do an action film that has all the Bollywood masala”
Starring recently in grey shades movies back to back like, Haider, Drishyam and Fitoor, Tabu said, “All of us get engaged only when there are a lot of emotions on screen. In theatre too, drama is what moves us, touches us, makes us feel or think. Audiences keep waiting to know what’s going to happen next. That’s the mystery I like watching and maybe creating on screen with my performances”.
Sharing her experience working with her co-actors in Fitoor, she said, “The experience was great. Aditya is a promising talent while Katrina has already carved a niche for herself in the film industry. It used to be a fun riot on the set.”
Revealing her Fitoor(madness/passion) in real life, the actor said, “I love collecting nail paints and stationary. I have cupboards full of stationery. Everywhere I go, I collect post cards from that country and add it to my collection.
About future projects, the actor said, “I am currently reading many scripts and yet to come across an exciting one. I want to do a full-fledged action film that has all the Bollywood masala. “I hope I get something that is out of the box and the audience haven’t thought of me playing such a role”.
