Tabu seems to be on a roll at the moment. The actress was met with praise for her memorable performance in Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, with many calling her one of the highlights of the film. Tabu is working on a host of films at the moment, one of them being the Vishal Bhardwaj directorial Khufiya. The actress recently opened up about the upcoming spy film.

In conversation with PTI, the actress revealed that the film had turned out ‘really well’. The film was thrilling, yet different, with all the trademark of a classic Bhardwaj film. She also talked about the amount of fun she had collaborating with the film's ensemble cast. The actress said that the upcoming film was a ‘personal’ one for them all as they had shot it ‘quietly’ in Delhi and Canada. She also spoke of how Khufiya featured a world that will ‘pull’ audiences in.

Tabu talked about how the film was a passion project for the director, who conceptualised it long ago. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film had gone on floors only last year. “It’s the world of intelligence, agents, espionage but not like a regular spy thriller that you’ve seen,” she said.

The upcoming project marks Tabu’s latest collaboration with Bhardwaj, after films like Maqbool (2003) and Haider (2013). The actress will also be seen in Bhardwaj’s production Kuttey, which also stars Arjun Kapoor and Radhika Madan.

In addition to Tabu, the Netflix film also stars Ali Fazal and Wamiqa Gabbi in pivotal roles. The film follows the story of a R&AW agent who goes in search of a mole selling the country’s defence information. Khufiya is based on the novel Escape To Nowhere, written by Amar Bhushan.
