It’s a known fact that Tabu, who has two National Film Awards in her kitty, is a powerhouse actress. Her last few films Fitoor, Haider and Drishyam have proved that still is one of Bollywood’s finest. But what most don’t know is that she is a travel buff. The actress loves solo travelling. “I love to travel alone. I have been all over the world. I have family in the US so I go there every. Travel is a passion for me.”
The 44-year-old says that she loves being close to nature. “I love travelling to places that are surrounded by nature. Of course, I also like seeing monuments and historical places, but I prefer going to places that are rich in nature. I don’t mind if it’s a secluded place or a tourist hub, as long as I can see some spot of nature. It can be anything, a snow peak or a beach, a jungle, a river, a lake or the ocean. I think we are deeply connected with nature. We don’t often get a chance to reconnect with nature as we live busy lives in the city. Nature has a calming effect on me.”
The actor, who has shot in Kashmir, says that her best memories of outdoor shoots are from places that are close to nature. “Some of my best memories are from my outdoor shoots in places like Kullu Manali, Kashmir, Seychelles and even north Bengal where we shot for Abar Aranye, says Tabu, who will soon travel to Bhutan to attend a literary festival, Mountain Echoes. Needless to say that she is excited about the visit. She is, however, not planning to undertake any long treks. “I don’t think a trek is for me. But I am planning to go on an easy one-day trek,” says the Namesake actress.
