Tabu denies playing Sushma Swaraj in Dhiraj Kumar’s film

Tabu denies playing Sushma Swaraj in Dhiraj Kumar’s film

Bollywood is flooded with news  about filmmaker Dhiraj Kumar making a film on Uzma Ahmed’s turmoil in Pakistan. How an Indian national was forced to marry Pakistani national Tahir Ali at gunpoint in Pakistan and the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s involvement to bring back ‘Hindustan Ki Beti’ helped her in getting out of the situation. The rumour mills are abuzz about Tabu being approached for the part of Sushma Swaraj in the film. But Tabu’s spokesperson denied the news-report.

National-Award winning actress, Tabu denies playing the role of External Affairs Minister in Uzma Ahmed’s biopic

A Mumbai tabloid has reported that National-Award winning actress Tabu has been approached by filmmaker Dhiraj Kumar to play External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in the Uzma Ahmed biopic.

Tabu’s spokesperson denied the news-report as being incorrect. On her part, the  actress also added, “I have no idea why filmmakers who have not approached me give out false news of my being approached for their movies when I have not even been contacted or made aware of a certain project. This has also happened in the past.  In fact, in some cases, some really big and established production houses have taken the liberty of using my name for a project without as much as my consent.  I think this is clearly done to hype their projects and to create insecurity amongst other actresses who may be approached for the role.  This is a poor practice and people should stop using my name in vain. Honestly it shows them(filmmakers) in poor light when I issue a denial like this. Unfortunately they leave me with no choice because no one has bothered to even check with me.”
