Actress Tabu says contrary to popular perception, she has no disdain for commercial films and would love to do something like “Golmaaal 4”.
Tabu, who has been part of critically acclaimed films like “Maqbool”, “Cheeni Kum” and “Haider”, says people form an assumption on the basis of her films.
“If I am doing a certain kind of cinema that does not mean I hate the other kind. People will talk about only what isworking and they get stuck with that.
“Personally, as an artiste I never do any discrimination. If I am offered a ‘Golmaal 4’, I’ll run and do it. How can people make these assumptions about me?,” Tabu told PTI.
Tabu was seen in superstar Salman Khan starrer “Jai Ho” and had a blink-and-miss appearance in Shah Rukh Khan’s “Main Hoon Na”.
The 44-year-old actress says she is the last person tohave a judgement on any kind of cinema, especially commercial films as they have given her the platform to do smaller movies.
“I am the last person who has any judgement about any kind of cinema. Least of all commercial cinema because I am a product of commercial cinema.
“What has helped me is my success in commercial cinema. It has given me a platform for others to cast me in their films. If I did not have the commercial success then I wouldn’t be able to do the smaller films.”
The “Drishym” star said she had mostly been a part of mainstream films in her career, which many people forget.
“There is a notion among people. I don’t know why they forget that out of the 80 films I’ve done, 70 have been mainstream commercial cinema. If you see my work in Telgu films you’ll be like… (makes a funny face).”
Tabu will be next seen in director Abhishek Kapoor’s romantic drama “Fitoor”. The actress says, now she is in a mood to do an “out and out action” film.
“I want to do an action film. I don’t have a script in mind. People should think and cast me in an action film. I have never done an out and out action. I’ve done action in ‘Maa tujhe salaam’, but not the out and out action,” she added.
Tabu will also be seen in “Missing” which she says “is complete for a long time and will hopefully release soon.”
