I never in­tended to work so much, says Tabu

Tabu has acted in many award-win­ning films, play­ing au­thor-backed roles in her three decade long ca­reer. The ac­tor has al­ways main­tained her per­sonal space and bal­anced both her pri­vate and pro­fes­sional life suc­cess­fully.

Since many ac­tors are dab­bling into var­i­ous ar­eas of film-mak­ing such as pro­duc­tion and di­rec­tion, ask her if she in­tends to go be­hind the cam­eras, and she says, “Never. I am one of those peo­ple who is not in­ter­ested in tak­ing up any ad­di­tional re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. I hate it and I am not good at it. I think the di­rec­tor has a huge re­spon­si­bil­ity — right from get­ting the script in place, the writ­ers and the en­tire cast to the pro­ducer, and then re­leas­ing the film. Is janam mein maine jitna kaam kiya hai utna maine dus janam ke barabar kar liya hai (The amount of work I’ve done in this life­time is equiv­a­lent to the work of ten life­times) (laughs). I never in­tended to work so much.”

Ask her if she can eas­ily de­tach from the char­ac­ters and their worlds af­ter she en­acts them, the Gol­maal Again ac­tor says, “It de­pends. Some­times you take back some char­ac­ters and some­times you don’t. Some you re­late to and some you don’t. A part of you re­ally be­comes that (the char­ac­ter) even if you don’t like them as peo­ple. It’s an in­ter­nal process.”
