Tabu who will be back on our screens in ‘Jawaani Janneman’ with Saif Ali Khan and debutante Alaya Furniturewala, said she was delighted to play the character of a free-spirited mother.
Reported on Mid-day, the ‘Andhadhun’ (2019) actress shares a bit about her character in the forthcoming comedy family entertainer, “[My character] is free-spirited, almost like a hippie. She randomly gets into relationships, and has a child out of wedlock. As actors, we are searching for something that can show us in a different light, and this film offered that. It’s a cameo but I knew I wanted to do this film at the first [reading]. This character is whacky and deserves a stand-alone film.”
The ‘De De Pyaar De’ (2019) actress gave some insight behind her look in the film, “The look had to be right because she [her character] can’t be understated. My stylists [Subhash Vagal, Sanam Ratansi and Hiral Bhatia] shopped in London, and added big boots, oversized jewellery, and gave me curly hair to complete the look.”
Speaking about playing the role of a mother, for the ‘Golmaal Again’ (2017) star said it was never a problem for her, “I am not one to have a strategy for my career. So, I have never looked at the age of a character, her marital status or the length of a role. [All that mattered was] that the role have an impact.”
‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ is directed by Nitin Kakkar and is slated to release in cinemas on the 31st January.
