Tabu is one of the few actors who has kept her private life private. She has never spoken about her relationships and has guarded it well.
Recently, the talented actor was asked about her marriages and personal life. She stated to a leading daily, "All this — marital status and children — matter the most especially when you are a woman. I don’t know what people actually judge you for."
She further said, "Honestly, it’s not that it has stopped bothering me; the fact remains that I’ve never been perturbed [by this] at all. I don’t see what the big deal is, being single or being not single. For me, it’s not a [yardstick for] assessing somebody. I mean, I don’t assess someone according to their marital status or whether they have children or not. And if people do it for me, I don’t know about it and don’t want to go there."
When asked if not being married is her choice, she replied, "Why do you want to get into that? Psychological analysis kyun karna chahte ho mera? Boring hai yeh question. Kuch aur pooch. (Why do you want to do my psychological analysis? This is a boring question. Ask me something else)."
On being asked about staying away from the controversies, Tabu said, "Well, people have written whatever crap they wanted to, about me, which was false. But I never confronted them. That’s the way I am and that’s how I want to be known as. I’ve always been like this. In school, I never fought. I knew exactly what the aggressive girls were doing, but I just stayed within my own self. It’s just my temperament, I feel."
She concluded by saying, "So, when something is off the mark and so untrue, I don’t even want to associate myself with it. Sometimes, it’s just funny, sometimes amusing, and sometimes really frustrating [too],” she says. “At times, you resign [yourself] to the fact that — though I’m not okay with it, I sort of understood — this is the way that people want to do their job, and this is their bread and butter... and too bad that I’m the target."
