Irrfan liked working with Deepika Padukone in Piku. However she was not his favourite co-star. His favorite was one other very tall and delightful actress Tabu.
Irrfan felt a particular bonding together with her ever since they labored collectively in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Maqbool. Irrfan Khan considers Tabu to be his most interesting co-star and the one which he likes sharing display area with probably the most.
He additionally did extraordinary intense and passionate love-making scenes with Tabu in each Maqbool and The Namesake and was trying to full his intense/passionate movies with the actress. Ever since he obtained to share some terribly intimate moments with Tabu in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Maqbool and Mira Nair’s The Namesake, Irrfan has been pining to finish his trilogy of romantic movies together with his favorite actress.
Alas, the movies that Irrfan did with Tabu after Maqbool and TheNamesake had no scope for any intimacy between them. Irrfan did three movies with Tabu after Maqbool and The Namesake. However in Ang Lee’s Life Of Pi he had not a single shot with Tabu. In Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider additionally Irrfan shares no display area with Tabu. In Meghna Gulzar’s Talvar the place Irrfan performs a police officer investigating the demise of a younger woman Tabu performs Irrfan’s spouse for precisely three minutes.
Irrfan had regretfully instructed me as soon as, “I actually wish to do yet one more intense movie with Tabu after Maqbool and The Namesake to finish our trilogy of passionate movies.”
