Tabu has denied the rumours that she is going to play the role of Sushma Swaraj, India’s present Foreign Minister, in the upcoming Dhiraj Kumar movie.
There were reports which suggested that the actor will play the role, but recently it was confirmed by Tabu’s latest statement, and it’s a ‘No’.
“I have no idea why filmmakers who have not approached me give out false news of me 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,” Tabu said.
At a time when non-fiction grips Bollywood, another film based on a true incident will be presented before the audience. Director Dhiraj Kumar is preparing to tell the story of Uzma Ahmed, an Indian national who was made to marry Pakistani national Tahir Ali at gunpoint in Pakistan. He will rope up the story of how Uzma Ahmed survived in Pakistan.
However, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj took it upon herself to bring ‘Hindustan ki beti’ back to home by interfering and winning a legal battle that lasted almost a fortnight. She(Uzma Ahmed) returned to India on May 25.
It will very interesting to figure out all these points from the director’s view. Let’s hope for the best work from the movie makers.
