Tabu not interested in turning producer or director

The actor will next be seen in Salman Khan's Bharat

Published: 27th November 2018

Tabu, who has successfully straddled commercial and off-beat films as an actor for over three decades, is currently enjoying the success of her film AndhaDhun, which is a rare combination of mystery, thriller, romance, and comedy.

"I took it up because I wanted to work with Sriram Raghavan (the film's director), and because this is the kind of character I will never say no to. It stretches my bandwidth and gives me a chance to work with somebody who has been around for so long and has his own space. He presents and projects his characters in a very unique way. I am always hungry for these kinds of experiences. I knew that it would be a really important film for me," she says.

Tabu also heaps praise on her co-star Ayushmann Khurrana. "I think it's his best performance so far. He was working really hard, but didn't make it look like he was working really hard. He was having fun, cracking jokes and still playing such a difficult role," she says about the actor, who played a blind pianist in the film.

The Chandni Bar-star has achieved a lot as an actor, so what about trying something new -- like going behind the camera? "No, I have no interest in turning a producer or director so far. I don't have the ability to produce and direct a film as of now. I don't know what I will do next year," she says.

Looking ahead, the Salman Khan-starrer Bharat is one of her upcoming films. She doesn't play the lead role in it though, and this hardly bothers her.

On what makes her take up small but pivotal roles in films, Tabu says, "I see how important the character is to the film. If I feel that it will stand out or if it will have its own place in the story with other characters, I will do it. Also, if I trust my director."
