Tabu's digital debut with Mira Nair's directorial?
Tue April 23rd, 2019
As we know, Tabu has continuously reinvented herself and made sure she's in consideration for some of the most powerful roles in various 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 revealed, "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 playing the role of the primary protagonist who's also the main anti-heroine in the movie. As per media sources, "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."
