In an interview with Galatta Plus, Tabu was asked about doing more films like Jawani Jaaneman, where she entertained the audience with her portrayal of a ‘hippie mom’. 

The actor said, “To begin with, I don’t think we have so many films in that genre being made every day. So the ratio of a comic film, as compared to other kinds of genres, is far less. Any actor is always going to be doing fewer comic roles and comedy films as opposed to the other, right? Because the space is too limited. So, I don’t know if so many characters like these are written for women. But these characters are not to be seen generally in cinema, like in life.”

Tabu added, “I don’t know if we associate women with comedy or fun or that so much now. Because there are a lot of women out there who are also making you laugh, but I don’t think it was really that till recently. There were not a lot of women who could make you laugh, and there were not a lot of people who could think about women in that spirit.”

Reacting to the same, Vishal Bhardwaj said, “Tabu is very funny; people don’t know, right? And she’s the most funny when she’s angry.”

Khufiya is all set to release on Netflix on October 5. The film also stars Ali Fazal, Wamiqa Gabbi, Ashish Vidyarthi, and Azmeri Haque Badhon.
