Tabu on ‘Andhadhun’s success: It worked because it is not a formula film
‘Andhadhun’ had released in October 2018 and ever since then, the movie has been breaking and making records. The film starred Tabu and Ayushmann Khurrana in lead roles. Tabu feels ‘Andhadhun’ owes its success to the fact that it is not a formula film and makes the audience re-think about it.
“It’s difficult for me to break it down. Andhadhun is not a formula film that became such a big success. If you make a formula film, you can say it had this much action, songs or beautiful locales. But this film did not have any of these formulae, so we can’t say it worked because of that. When the film is different and is successful, then you understand that it has appealed to the audience at a different level,” Tabu told IANS.
In an interview with DNA, when asked about what her take on the ending of the ‘Andhadhun’ was, she said, “I also want to understand what really happened, but Sriram is not ready to reveal. He is okay with any theory about the story. I also believe what you see is what you think. As far as I am concerned, Simi (her character) died and Ayushmann is actually blind in the end. Whether he is lying or telling the truth we don’t know.”
The film, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte, will now have a special screening at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM).
