Filmmakers are lazy to cast me in different roles

National Award-winning Bollywood actor Tabu, known for portraying intense characters, says filmmakers have become too lazy to cast her in different roles.

The actor has delivered some critically acclaimed performances in films like Maachis, Astitva, Chandni Bar, Maqbool and Haider among others. She has also acted in comic films like Saajan Chale Sasural, Chachi 420,  Hera Pheri, Biwi No 1 and others.

Tabu said filmmakers find it easy to cast her for an intense role as they think it works for them. They lacks ‘vision’ to offer her different kind roles.

“I think people do whatever is convenient to them because it suits them to cast me in serious and intense roles as it works. So, they take the easy way out in giving those roles,” Tabu told a media person. 

“They don't have the vision to present me in a different role. I think they have become lazy in presenting me in a different manner,” she said.

The Cheeni Kum actor, however, said she doesn't like to be known as someone doing just “serious cinema”. But at the same time she is happy with the way her career has shaped up so far. The 43-year-old actor feels that 40s is an exciting time as a lot of things are happening for her.

On being quizzed which is the ‘best phase’ of her career, the 40s or the initial years, Tabu said, “It is a busy time, a lot more is happening now. I think this is a good phase. I have gone through so many experiences and a range of work in 40s is a good place to be in.

Tabu will be seen next in Nishikant Kamat's Drishiyam alongside lead actors Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran and Rajat Kapoor. The film, slated to release on July 31, is a murder mystery set in Goa and is a remake of a successful Malayalam film of the same name.
