Tabu, who is gearing up for her upcoming black comedy film Kuttey, revealed that her role in the film was written for a male character but director Aasmaan Bhardwaj and his composer-filmmaker father Vishal changed it for her.

Kuttey is the directorial debut of Aasmaan. Talking to the media at the trailer launch event of the film in Mumbai on Tuesday, the actress, who has worked with Vishal in films such as Maqbool and Haider, said, "This character was written for a male, but Aasmaan and Vishal ji changed it for me. Aasmaan has grown up in front of me."

She also shared that working in the film brought in a sense of pride for her as she has seen Aasmaan grow up in front of her eyes.

"Aasmaan mere saamne hi bada hua hai, mere saamne sets pe lakdi ka camera leke ghoomta tha (he has grown up in front of me, I remember seeing him walking around on the sets with a wooden camera) and he was so consumed by the world of films. To see him write something like Kuttey brought in a sense of pride for me as Vishal ji, Rekha ji and Aasman are a family for me,” she said.

Kuttey will land in cinemas on January 13, 2023.
