Speaking at a packed session at the seventh edition of the Mountain Echoes Literary Festival in Thimphu, the actor, known for her powerhouse performances, said that she can do justice to such a role.
The three-day festival, which concluded on Sunday, saw the participation of over 50 authors from India, Bhutan, Australia and Bangladesh, among other countries.
The national award winner, who is a travel buff, added that she enjoyed her first trip to Bhutan, describing it as a land of spirituality and peace.
“I am living in complete happiness here and I haven’t walked so much in recent times. I am learning mandala painting here,” she said.
Speaking to the media later, the actor said that social media has never fascinated her and she chooses to stay away from it.
“I don’t find a reason to be on twitter or Facebook. This is my temperament and I can’t put myself out 24/7 out there. However, I am not judgmental about others being there,” said the actress.
“I don’t disown feminism but I don’t believe in such labels,” she said, adding that young female Bollywood actors are getting varied roles and better remuneration than before.
Contrary to her image of an actor of the parallel cinema, Tabu said that she loves to do more light-hearted movies.
“I want to do more roles like ‘Biwi No. 1’ and ‘Hera Pheri’. Working in comedy movies is fun and you discover new ways to make things funny. I loved working with David Dhawan, Govinda, and Priyadarshan,” she said.
