Tabu on Hindi vs. South debate as Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 crosses 150 crore mark: I don’t think there's any formula
Tabu is one of the most skilled actors to have graced the big screen in Indian cinema. Currently, she’s riding high on the success of her latest release Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, starring Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani. The film recently crossed the 150-crore mark at the box office, making it only the third film to enter the 100-crore club this year. The Anees Bazmee directorial ended the dry spell at the Bollywood box office as it set cash registers ringing. Amid this, Tabu opened up on the Hindi vs. South films debate which is a hot topic of discussion.
In a recent chat with IndiaToday. In, Tabu shared her thoughts on the language debate. The Haider actress said she wasn’t aware that Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was talked about in the context of the debate till two days ahead of the release. She also articulated that she was ‘perplexed’ when her sister mentioned it to her. She also maintained that such conversations do not reach her as she has done many South films and that it did not matter to her.
Going further, Tabu opined that it’s all about the timing and that there is no formula for success. “I think most things are not spoken off in isolation for what they are but more about other things, either in comparison or another context. I don’t know if the conversation would still have remained. I think the conversations highlight this. It has nothing to do with other films. I think every film should be seen as an individual. I don’t think there is any formula. The film is a film,” Tabu shared.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 hit theatres on May 20. The horror-comedy is a sequel to the 2007 psychological thriller Bhool Bhulaiyaa starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan, directed by Priyadarshan. Apart from Tabu, Kartik, and Kiara, the film also features Sanjay Mishra and Rajpal Yadav in crucial roles.
