When asked that why she has not appeared in such movies in the recent times. On this Tabu says that nowadays taking the decisions on the film is not that difficult like earlier it used to happen.
Tabu says when she started her career she has done many movies where the tag of the women-oriented movies was not there. At that time she chose the movie because she finds the character was substantial. Now, she says that the producers and the directors are coming up to her with a women-oriented movie and the makers want her to take the responsibility of the film on her shoulder and she always say no to those makers because she does not want to get stuck in there.
Tabu says that she wants that the focus should be on her work as in on her performance it should not be like that she sells in the category of film.

She says that it all depends on how much the character has impacted your mind whenever she plays the character, physically mentally she usually go through the process and then she feels that it is obvious that you will get impacted. But she says that there are some characters which actually stayed there in her system for a longer time. She says like she played the character in ‘Hu Tu Tu’ that character was a pole apart what she is in her real life. She says that the character was grey and later it becomes totally dark.
Moreover, she says that her roles in the movie ‘Maqbool’, ‘Haider’, or ‘The Namesake’ was very larger than the life character that they shook their equilibrium. But Tabu says that in a real life she is very fun loving and she always keen to explore the genre of the comedy movies.

When asked from the actress about her opinion about the comedy genre which has not been taken seriously in making the film. Tabu says that yes the comedy is a kind of a genre which has been taken with a pinch of a salt and it is good she believes that you can not take every genre of the movie so seriously. Tabe says that in fact these all reflect life and she says that we should all take the life with a pinch of a salt and the one cannot be so serious all the time, everyone needs a break from a drudgery of life at times.
