Tabu is one of the most skilled actresses we have in the Bollywood industry. She has not just awed everybody with her performances in Bollywood but has also mesmerised audiences by working in South film industry, Marathi, English and others. The actress has finished her 25 years in the business. On being asked about the lifespan of her innings in the film industry by a leading daily, the gifted performer stated,
It’s been fun, challenging, gratifying... I cannot come up with any one adjective for my journey. Initially, I found it mentally challenging, as I come from a different background. I grew up in a simple family of academicians in Hyderabad. Acting happened by accident, like most things in my life. I never had an inclination for it. Adjusting to the mindset of the industry and its ways was tough. My journey of self-discovery actually began when I started understanding and giving more to the craft when I wanted to be more than just the heroine. Meeting people like Gulzar Saab, Mani Ratnam, Priyadarshan, Santosh Sivan... from then on, it began to get serious.In the interim, on the work front, Tabu has been single and is continually being tested about having an accomplice. Testing on it, she stated,
I’ve nothing against relationships. They happen when they have to. It’s not something that you put down in a couple of points.Whenever inquired as to whether the general public is judgemental towards single ladies, Tabu further stated,
It used to bother me when people were interested in other people’s lives, but not anymore. It’s human nature. Sometimes, I feel that people also do it out of concern. People will always be curious about single women, more so a celebrity. I think our society has a problem accepting that a woman can be single by choice also.
