In this interview with Rajeev Masand, Tabu, the versatile star of such films as Maachis, Chandni Bar, Astitva, Maqbool and The Namesake reveals how director Vishal Bhardwaj convinced her to play Shahid Kapoor’s mother in his Hamlet adaptation, Haider. The actress also talks about her long absences from the screen, how she humanizes complex characters, and how the ‘serious actress’ label didn’t allow her to have as much fun as she’d have liked to.
