Rukhsar in Tabu’s footsteps

TabuBack with my kawah, Mottu insists on serving it to me along with a nugget on Rukhsar. Seems the actress, who has done limited films, is highly inspired by my chahiti Tabu. So much so that when she was offered the role of a bar girl in Benny Aur Babloo or something such, she grabbed it with both hands and feet.

Apparently, the character is based on a real life bar dancer and Rukhsar plays a mentor to younger girls who come to work in the same bar. Khair, I’m informed that the abhinetri is very inspired by Tabu’s performance in Chandni Bar and is working very hard to emulate her idol without coming across as a ‘me too’.

Now, it remains to be seen if Madhur Bhandarkar is impressed enough with Rukhsar’s histrionics to make a sequel to his Chandni Bar with the abhinetri, remarks Mottu. Now how do I tell her that I don’t really care? But then, such is life dearies.
