Tabu on her unique relationship with the actor who she’s romancing on screen again after 23 years, why she’s still single but no longer afraid to mingle.
Actress Tabu told Mumbai Mirror that the reason why she is single today is because of Ajay Devgn, her co-star of several films like Drishyam (2015) and Vijaypath (1994). Tabu said that when they were young, her cousin and Ajay Devgn (who were neighbours and close friends) ‘spied’ on her and “threatened to beat up any boys who are caught talking to me,” reportsMumbai Mirror. “They were the big bullies and if I am single today, it is because of Ajay. I hope he repents and regrets what he did,” she said. “I told him the other day to please find me a boy to marry,” she added. Tabu and Ajay Devgn will feature in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming comedy Golmaal 4.
We’ve heard that he’s now taken the onus of getting you hitched?
(Laughs) I told him the other day to please find me a boy to marry. But jokes aside, our relationship has grown because we have worked so much with each other. From among the male actors, if there is anyone I can count on, it’s Ajay. He is a like a child and yet so protective. The atmosphere on set when he’s around is stress-free. We share a unique relationship and an unconditional affection.
What do you see when you look back on your two-and-a-halfdecade career?
I really want to be able to look at my career graph from the outside, objectively, but I find it hard to do that. I was fortunate to find innumerable scripts with welllayered parts for me, films like Maachis, Hu Tu Tu, Maqbool, Life of Pi, The Namesake, Chandni Bar, Astitva, Haider, Drishyam, to name a few. I’m happy the filmmakers who made them thought of me. I didn’t consciously create this graph, I still don’t commit easily to a film but once I do, I give it my all. I’m happy I’m still doing relevant stuff.
Golmaal Again will mark your return to slapstick comedies after more than a decade.
I’ve wanted to do a light-hearted film for a long time, more so because my mother was fed up of me doing rona-dhona roles. A lot of people too have been saying they wanted to see me in a comedy like Biwi No 1 and Hera Pheri. I remember joking with Rohit Shetty at parties, saying, “I want to be part of Golmaal franchise because I want to just stand there and laugh.” To be honest, even in a film like Golmaal Again, I’m the more serious and credible character, but as part of the team, I get the chance to stand there and laugh at the boys (Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade and Kunal Kemmu) who are doing what they do best. I’m working with Rohit for the first time and I’m really happy. There is an unexplained familiarity when I’m on set with him. He’s completely focused on the action but he also makes his actors comfortable.
