Here’s what Tabu has to say about playing Sushma Swaraj in Dhiraj Kumar film – Filmmaker Dhiraj Kumar claimed to have approached Tabu for the part of Sushma Swaraj in a film based on Uzma Ahmed’s rescue from Pakistan
Reports have been abuzz about filmmaker Dhiraj Kumar making a film on Uzma Ahmed’s turmoil in Pakistan. How an Indian national was forced to marry Pakistani national Tahir Ali at gunpoint in Pakistan and the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s involvement to bring back ‘Hindustan Ki Beti’ helped her in getting out of the situation. The rumour mills are abuzz about Tabu being approached for the part of Sushma Swaraj in the film. But Tabu’s spokesperson denied the news-report.
The actress said, “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.” Sounding upset about her name being used for the publicity of the film Tabu revealed this is not the first time that her name has gotten attached to a film she hasn’t even heard about. “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. 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 practise 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.”
Reports even suggest that Tapsee Pannu and Parineeti Chopra are being considered for playing the part of Uzma Ahmed in the film which goes on floors this year.
