Immensely talented Tabu will be seen in Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s upcoming film. The film is set in the backdrop of the reign of Emperor Ashoka.
The film resolves around the relationship between Emperor Ahoka and his son, Kinal. Tabu’s new avtar is a bit controversial in the film, as she plays a sexually deprived woman, thereby allowing a good deal of sexual connotation. She is cast opposite of Amitabh Bachchan and will be seen as sexually linked with Kunal, played by Arjun Rampal.
As in the Director’s word, ‘She’s unable to achieve sexual fulfillment. Desire when uncontrolled, plays havoc with the mind. That’s Tabu’s story’ in the film. He also quotes that her character suffers from ‘ kama tanha’ or ‘sexual isolation’.
The sexual yearning of Tabu’s character is contrasted with another character of the film, the character of Kanchanmala, Kunal’s wife, to be portrayed by Amrita Rao. According to Dwivedi, if Tabu’s character implies ‘thirst’, Amrita’s character implies ‘purity’. There seems to be quite a good opportunity to set a dramatic confrontation between these two leading ladies in the film.
