Tabu mentioned that music composers from the industry are aware of her love for music, and that she will soon announce some collaborations. "Vishal (Bhardwaj) knows that I love singing. I hope we come up with an album together. He is a brilliant musician himself and I like his work. I want to collaborate with people I am comfortable with," she said.

Another name on her list is Anu Malik. Tabu revealed that she has had a word with the composer about the possibility of making music together. "I spoke to Anu Malik about it as well. In fact, we connect on music. I always credit him for giving me numerous hits during the beginning of my career. Hopefully we’ll collaborate and produce something good," said the actor.

Anu Malik, meanwhile, said, "I have heard her sing before. She has a melodious voice. I believe she is training and working hard to polish her skills. If an opportunity comes up, I will definitely explore the option of working with her on an album.”
