Tabu reveals how her character in AndhaDhun has left people scared of her



Still in love with Simi of AndhaDhun? Yes, we bet you are. Tabu gave us a deliciously wicked performance as the cunning Simi in Sriram Raghavan’s thriller. The actress revealed jokingly to Mumbai Mirror how the performance left people scared of her. Waxing eloquent about the film, she told the paper, ” AndhaDhun was in its own world and space. Even to this day, people are talking about the ending and possible theories are doing the rounds. You can’t reference a character like that. The fact that people have loved and appreciated Simi so much is a thing of joy for me. I’ve enjoyed the film’s success thoroughly and I feel everyone involved has been able to own it completely. I want to thank the whole team for making AndhaDhun what it became.” Later, she said that she got some reactions that were extreme. She said jokingly, “I’ve heard that after watching the film, some people fear me, so do the kids in my building.” When she reminded that it is kind of high praise for an actor, she told the publication, “Well, yeah, but you don’t want people to be scared of you.” The film was a super duper hit in China as well. Tabu who will be seen as Ajay Devgn’s wife in De De Pyaar De is doing a film with Allu Arjun as well. While rumours of her doing the Telugu film were doing the rounds, she confirmed it to Mumbai Mirror. She said, “I will start shooting for my portions in July. It is another interesting character, but I can’t talk about it yet; the film hasn’t even gone on the floors. But I am excited about it. I just felt like it was time for me to reconnect with that audience. I have worked with Allu Arvind (producer) and at the end of the day, it’s Hyderabad. It’s home ground for me. I will get to visit my house, meet my friends… I am close to Chiranjeevi’s family.” Her last film in Telugu was Pandurangadu (2008) directed by K Raghavendra Rao. It had Nandamuri Balakrishna in the lead. Finally, she gave an insight into how she picks her characters. “Primarily, I look at the positioning my character is getting in a film and the contribution she makes to the story. It’s not about working with names. But it is about finding out what the director has envisioned for me, what they expect from me in a character and how important it is. I also look at the value that I can add to the film and vice versa, as an experience. And of course, the overall project and the people involved in it. Then, it also depends on what I am gravitating towards at the time,” she told Mumbai Mirror.   .storyTimeline{margin:10px 0;position:relative}.storyTimeline li{position:relative;margin:10px 0}.storyTimeline .timelineBox{padding:15px 35px 15px 75px;border:1px solid #f32646;border-radius:50px;height:60px;line-height:50px;width:93.5%;float:right;margin-bottom:20px}.storyTimeline .timelineBox:hover{padding:15px 35px 15px 75px;border:1px solid #f32646;border-radius:50px;height:60px;line-height:50px;width:93.5%;float:right;background-color:#ee0b84;color:#fff;background-color:red;background-image:linear-gradient(to right,#f42b8b,#f32646)}.storyTimeline .timelineBox:hover p{color:#fff!important}.storyTimeline .timelineBox p{font-size:16px!important;color:#333!important}.storyTimeline .timelineBox .tLtxt{width:95%;white-space:nowrap;display:inline-block;overflow:hidden;text-overflow:ellipsis}.storyTimeline .timelineDate p{color:#f32646!important;font-size:12px!important}.storyTimeline .timelineDate{float:left;border:1px dashed #f32646;border-radius:30px;padding:3px 15px;line-height:15px;height:35px;background:#fff;margin-top:-66px}.storyTimeline .timelineBox:hover .fa{color:#fff}.timelineBox .fa{margin-top:5px;float:right;color:#f32646}.storyTheading{font-size:20px;text-transform:uppercase;font-weight:600}.storyTimeline a{text-decoration:none}
