Filmmakers are lazy to cast me in different roles: Tabu

Mumbai:  National Award-winning actress Tabu, known for portraying intense characters, says filmmakers have become too lazy to cast her in different roles.

The actress has delivered some critically acclaimed performances in films like “Maachis”, “Astitva”, “Chandni Bar”, “Maqbool” and “Haider” among others.

She has also acted in comic films like “Saajan Chale Sasural”, “Chachi 420″, “Hera Pheri”, “Biwi No 1″ and others.

Tabu said filmmakers find it easy to cast her for an intense role as they think it works for them. They lacks ‘vision’ to offer her different kind roles.

“I think people do whatever is convenient to them because it suits them to cast me in serious and intense roles as it works. So, they take the easy way out in giving those roles,” Tabu told PTI.

“They don’t have the vision to present me in a different role. I think they have become lazy in presenting me in a different manner,” she said.

The “Cheeni Kum” actress, however, said she doesn’t like to be known as someone doing just “serious cinema”. But at the same time she is happy with the way her career has shaped up so far.

The 43-year-old actress feels that 40s is an exciting time as a lot of things are happening for her.

On being quizzed which is the ‘best phase’ of her career, the 40s or the initial years, Tabu said, “It is a busy time, a lot more is happening now. I think this is a good phase. I have gone through so many experiences and a range of work in 40s is a good place to be in.

“There is an exciting range of things happening in my life. I have experienced so many things in my life which I think is impossible for anybody to experience. By virtue of being in this profession, you get to experience so many things that you understand so much about life, relationships,” she said.
