Actress Tabu, who is known for movies like Fitoor, Drishyam and Maqbool says she wants to play the role of a warrior, perhaps inspired by Sonakshi Sinha who is playing an action heroine in ‘Akira’.
Speaking at the seventh edition of the Mountain Echoes Literary Festival, the actress, known for her powerful performances, said that she can do justice to such a role. “I want to do the role of a warrior and I am sure I will look good in that role,” said Tabu.
The three-day festival, which concluded on Sunday, saw the participation of over 50 authors from India, Bhutan, Australia and Bangladesh, among other countries.
The national award winner, who is a travel buff, added that she enjoyed her first trip to Bhutan, describing it as a land of spirituality and peace.
“I am living in complete happiness here and I haven’t walked so much in recent times. I am learning mandala painting here,” she said.
She said social media has never fascinated her and she chooses to stay away from it. “I don’t find a reason to be on twitter or Facebook. This is my temperament and I can’t put myself out 24/7 out there. However, I am not judgmental about others being there,” said the actress.
Talking about her career she said she does not want to follow one genre of movies and was opened to do everything.
Talking about her noteworthy roles in Maqbool and Haider, directed by Vishal Bharadwaj, Tabu said that it was a life-changing experience for her. Though she was reluctant to play the role of a mother, she won over her fears, she added.
“Vishal wrote the roles for me and have a lot of faith in him. The conflict was playing the mother and I defeated the fear ultimately. Though the characters are dark, I tried to connect with their emotional quotient. Not all films and characters give you the chance to express the way you want,” she added.
The actress who says she drew inspiration from talk show host Oprah Winfrey and author Mayo Angelo admitted that her roles in films like Maachis and Chandni Bar have made her thinking. – CINEWS
