Actress Tabu, who has worked with actor Irrfan in three films Maqbool, Namesake and now Life of Pi, is happy that both of them have been part of good films together and hopes for the same in future as well.

"Irrfan and I are not on screen together (in Life of Pi). He is playing the older Pi, so that way we are not paired together. But it's good, we have always done good films together. I hope our collaboration in future also remains because of good films," the 41-year-old said here Wednesday at a special screening of Life of Pi.

"I like working with him, there is a certain level of comfort and we have worked in good films together. It's good that we have a positive collaboration," she added.

Talking about the film, Tabu said she is not at all nervous.

"I am excited, I am not nervous because the burden is not on my shoulders. It's the director's film, the boy's film, tiger's. So I have only enjoyed it and today also I have come to only enjoy it as an audience. It was great working in this film, the story is the hero of the film," Tabu said.

Life of Pi is directed by Oscar winning director Ang Lee, who is known for films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk and Brokeback Mountain. It releases Friday.
