National Award-winning actress Tabu is yet again collaborating with her childhood friend and co-actor Ajay Devgn, in his upcoming directorial venture Bholaa. She recently shared how Ajay convinced her to do some of the high-octane action sequences in the film and how that made her trust the actor even more.
Tabu was present at the trailer launch of the film, along with the cast and crew members - including actors Deepak Dobriyal and Vineet Kumar as well as producer Bhushan Kumar.
Talking about how she came on board for the film, Tabu said, “It’s never a difficult task for Ajay to convince me for a movie. He just had to call me and say this is what we want to do in the film and I will do it. I entered this film with my eyes closed. I knew that I have to do a lot of action scenes for the film, and Ajay makes things easy for everyone. In fact, he said that to me also as if it’s such an easy thing to do. He said, ‘Haan, woh tujhe action karna hai film mein’... That's it!”
She further said, “Look, Ajay can do action even in his sleep, but I had to work hard. But it is also true that he made it easy for me... I knew that I could completely submit myself to him with the trust that he will extract the performance from me. And yes, I did this action film without any injury, and did not even have a scratch.”
Adding to that, Ajay - who was standing next to her and smiling throughout - said, “I think it was difficult for her to do the action, because in the film, she had scenes with one hand in a sling, so doing action and finding balance in one hand was surely not easy.”
Tabu and Ajay have worked together in films like Vijaypath, Takshak, Haqeeqat, Dridhyam, Golmaal Again, Fitoor, De De Pyaar De and Drishyam 2.
Bholaa also features Gajraj Rao, Makarand Deshpande, Yuri Suri, Raai Laxmi, Amala Paul and Abhishek Bachcha. The film is all set to release in the theatres on March 30.
