Tabu on reshaping her Crew character

In a recent interview with Vogue India, Tabu revealed that she wanted to make her character look more ‘colloquial and less scripted’. She said, “In a film like this, you cannot make it fun if you follow all the rules, so I brought some changes to how my character was written.”

She further talked about refining her bond with actor-comedian Kapil Sharma in the film so that it can feel more relatable. She shared, “After all, acting as a craft is alive, it keeps changing and you need to evolve with it.”

What is the alternative profession Tabu wants to explore?

Tabu expressed she wants “to be a photographer”. When asked about the style she’s interested in, Tabu added, “No, just a picture that can tell a good story. Now I just need to find people who will buy my photos.” Tabu who relatively had some of the blockbusters in recent years including Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Drishyam 2 looked back at being offered her most remarkable film Maqbool (2003).



Tabu revealed, “Nimmi was such a powerful character because she is lustful, owns her sexuality and is unafraid to ask for what she wants.” The actress shared, “When I was reading the script, I wondered, ‘Does Vishal really see me this way?’ It was so special because Maqbool changed filmmaking in India. There was nothing like it before.”
