Tabu rubbishes the report that, she has been approached Uzma Ahmed biopic
Earlier there was a report that, Tabu will part of Uzma Ahmed biopic
According to a report, the National-Award winning actress has been approached by filmmaker Dhiraj Kumar to play External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in the Uzma Ahmed biopic.
However, Tabu's spokesperson denied the news-report as being incorrect.
On her part, the actress also added, "I have no idea why filmmakers who have not approached me give out false news of my being approached for their movies when I have not even been contacted or made aware of a certain project.
This has also happened in the past. In fact, in some cases, some really big and established production houses have taken the liberty of using my name for a project without as much as my consent.
She continued, “I think this is clearly done to hype their projects and to create insecurity amongst other actresses who may be approached for the role. This is a poor practice and people should stop using my name in vain.
Honestly, it shows them (filmmakers) in poor light when I issue a denial like this. Unfortunately, they leave me with no choice because no one has bothered to even check with me.''
Parineeti Chopra had also been associated with the project, which tells the tale of Uzma Ahmed, an Indian woman who was forced into marrying a Pakistani at gunpoint.
