Tabu in a film on women's sexuality
Tabu once said that the very idea of women empowerment is paradoxical because the real empowerment should come from within than without. Well, director-actor Mahesh Manjrekar is learnt to have come up with such a role about a woman who dares to assert her identity and sexuality in a society straitjacketed in old mindset.
In a film titled ‘White’, Mahesh wants to cast Tabu in the role of a middleclass woman who walks out on her insensitive, uncaring husband but also has an affair with a man younger than her.
“It is a bolder look at the feelings, dreams and nightmares of an Indian housewife than anything attempted on screen,” Mahesh is quoted to have said about the film.
Mahesh says when the script was being written and the leading character was getting fleshed out, he could only see Tabu playing the role.
It may be recalled that Tabu had played a similar independent woman with a mind of her own in Manjrekar’s ‘Astitva’ almost a decade ago.
Manjrekar says Tabu’s role in ‘White’ is bolder than the one she played in ‘Astitva’
