Two-time National Award-winning actor Tabu is known to be a recluse, but there is much more to her, she claims. The 41-year-old reveals that she maintains a low profile on purpose. “If there is a film… if there is a project that I am doing which is worthy of being talked about, I am comfortable talking. I am not closed, and I am not too open either,” she says.
The actor, who has been in the industry for almost two decades, adds that she has seen things change, especially in the way stars are being branded and managed by their publicists. “It is very different from what I have seen. I don’t know if I can relate to this. I don’t think a publicist can tell me how to behave. I mean, they can tell the younger lot. But if you really want to be in sync with everything, then you have to do what everyone else is doing,” she says.
The Life Of Pi (2012) actor adds that at this point of her career, she only believes in working with the right people and something that is worth her time. Speaking about the younger generation of actors, she says, “Everyone these days is so competent, confident and focussed. That is something that sets them apart from the earlier generations. They are very clear about what they want. They are sure of themselves.”
On her take on reaching out to the public through social media platforms like Twitter the way other celebrities are doing, she said, “I might join Twitter. All my friends are on it. Maybe slowly I will also join the gang.”
