Tabu bats for more comic roles for female actors

Kolkata: National Award-winning actor Tabu, who has wowed audiences in comedies like “Biwi No. 1” and “Hera Pheri”, doubts if a lot of actresses get to do comic roles.

Asked why she was not being seen in light-hearted films of late, the “Chandni Bar” actress replied: “Not many light-hearted films are made. Not that I am not doing it. I don’t know if a lot of female actors get comic parts.”

Tabu, who will be seen in “Fitoor” next, admitted she craves for comedies.

“I would love to do more… ‘Biwi No.2…3…’ and more ‘Hera Pheri’,” the 41-year-old said at the Kolkata Literary Meet here.

She also raved about actor Govinda, her co-star in “Saajan Chale Sasural”.

“It is a pleasure to watch him take a less than ordinary scene and magically make something fantastically entertaining to watch. He has that rare quality,” she said.
