Tabu on ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’: “I’ve never looked at age or marital status of my character”


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.
