Tabu all set to make her digital debut with Mira Nair's directorial? More details here
It's the age of the digital renaissance. With various online entertainment portals becoming regular go-to activities for the general audience today, there has been a spike in demand for Indian content on these OTT platforms.
Along with this revolution, Bollywood too has witnessed a strong paradigm shift in their treatment towards female characters in movies. We aren't saying movies with strong parts weren't written for women earlier, but those examples are very few and far in between compared to how it is now.
Among the several senior actors, Tabu has constantly reinvented herself and made sure she's in consideration for some of the most powerful roles in several big ticket movies.
Last year, she delivered a stunner with Sriram Raghavan's AndhaDhun, and now, we hear she might have locked her next project. A source mentioned, "Mira Nair and Tabu go a long way together (they had done Namesake together in 2006). They have been friends and respect each other's body of work. So when Mira decided to cast someone for the web series she's planning to make, adapted from Vikram Chandra's novel A Suitable Boy, she immediately approached Tabu for it. Both of them have finished their round of narrations and Tabu has verbally given her nod to the script. The modalities are being worked out right now."
If Tabu says yes, she will be essaying the role of the primary protagonist who's also the main anti-heroine in the film.
Our source adds, "A Suitable Boy is about four families and has several sub plots, but the central plotline is about the character of Rupa Mehra trying to find a suitable groom for her daughter Lata. Rupa is over controlling and extremely dominating in nature, and becomes a major cause of conflict in Lata's life. The role required someone with brilliant acting prowess and Mira couldn't think of anyone better than Tabu." This was the same show which was offered to Ishaan Khatter and he refused. The Dhadak actor was approached to play one of the suitors. The project, which has been in the pipeline for around two years now, was initially green lit by Netflix, but they pulled out of it recently. Mira plans to get the series on floors sometime around mid-2019.
