Tabu talks about the films that pushed her beyond her boundaries.
In an interview, she gave the example of her numerous films namely; Andhadhun, Haider, Maqbul and others. Out of all, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 pushed her a lot in different directions.
She stated: “In their own way, all my roles have pushed me. Maqbool was like that, Andhadhun was like that. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was like that, Bholaa (currently being filmed) is like that. They all pushed me in different directions.”
“That’s the most wonderful part; that, as a creative person, I grew in a non-linear way. I mean, the strongest example I can give you from recent times is Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. To be doing a double role, to be doing action, to be doing 20 years in the past and then the present, and then to play a ghost.”
“And then to play the villain, dancing, doing action, flying and falling and sporting that look with all the makeup, with so much physicality involved… I don’t think many actors have got to do that in one film. It was like 10 films in one for me. It was a lot that we were doing because I was in a harness for most of the time and in that makeup, that hair and blood on my face at all times. So, personal experiences like these really stand out. Like Kashmir from Haider will stay with me forever. It has left an indelible mark on me.”
Tabu’s last film Drishyam 2 with Ajay Devgan turned out to be a massive hit at the box office. She will be seen in Bholaa with Ajay next, reports PinkVilla.
