Tabu on Kuttey and Khufiya: Worked with Vishal Bhardwaj and his son Aasmaan simultaneously, they are poles apart

Tabu has returned with filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj for Khufiya, with whom she has given some of her most subtle performances. But Vishal isn't the only Bhardwaj on her list of accomplishments. It's no surprise that when Aasmaan Bhardwaj, the filmmaker's son, chose to direct Kuttey, he knocked on Tabu's door. The actor thinks the father-son duo are worlds apart after working with them on two films over the last four months.

Tabu told Mid Day that she collaborated with Vishal and Aasmaan at the same time; they are opposed. It's fantastic to work with Vishal once more, and she hopes the film has a happy ending, but the experience of working with him is more significant to her. The espionage thriller Khufiya is a great Vishal film with its unique touch.

Tabu has appeared in many of the filmmaker's films, from Maqbool (2003) to Haider (2013). She was excited to see what the new blood had to give when she walked into Aasmaan's film. The black comedy, which also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Arjun Kapoor, and Radhika Madan, is shooting. The actor is impressed.

The tabloid went on to tell the story that she remembers seeing Aasmaan when he was a kid. However, when he presented her with the script, he introduced himself to her as a director. Despite the fact that she has known the family for many years, they have a director-actor relationship on set. The actor revealed that Aasmaan lets her present her point of view, and they talk about it. She said it's refreshing to see his perspective so clear.

Even though they are from different genres, Tabu sees Kuttey and Khufiya as extensions of the kinds of films she likes. The actor concluded by saying that playing multidimensional characters has always seemed liberating to her. She wants to try new things without worrying about how they may impact her career. Characters have become more nuanced in recent years, but she has been playing them since the beginning.
