Renowned Indian actress, Tabu, recently said that she has had an affinity towards layered characters, which demands more from her as an artiste. She believes that characters with grey shades are closer to the real life.

"When a character is layered, it is automatically more interesting and engaging for me because it demands more from you and in return, it also gives you more. For me, it has always been about the experience of immersing myself into these characters that attract me, whether they are grey or not. I always thought that there is nothing wrong in playing characters that are layered, grey or dark, because a human being is made up of all these feelings, emotions and character traits. I was always happy and excited to portray these things on the screen," Tabu said.

She feels blessed to collaborate with directors who approach a film differently and have their own unique style of film-making. "I have been very lucky to be offered all kinds of cinema and roles. Different directors have come to me with varied characters. I have been open to different kinds of films and the audiences have also accepted me. I think what has worked or the way I have worked, is that I have never differentiated between any film," she said.

Tabu also added that, "I have to act always and I never thought that I should approach a mainstream film differently and an art house or thriller in another way. I have just done my work to the best of my ability and tried to be 100 per cent immersed in the characters I have played." Her latest movie, 'Andhadhun' co-starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajeev Dhawan and Radhika Apte, released on October 5.

Tabu feels ecstatic to star in the film and says that the movie should not be classified under a particular genre. "I think it is a completely different film and format than 'Drishyam'. You can't call it a thriller. You just can't classify it into any kind of film because you know Sriram's work and his cinematic language is completely unique to him. So there is really no label that you can attach to this film. It is also a different kind of experience for actors to do this kind of film and be part of this kind of storytelling."

She further added, "I knew this experience would be entirely new and very learning for me as an actor. To work with different minds has always been very exciting for me and that's what drew me to this film. I knew what Sriram does with his characters and actors and so I was also very confident that this film would stand out and that it will be a significant role for me to play."
