Playing Tabu’s daughter was hard, says Katrina

MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, who will be seen playing Tabu’s daughter in the film Fitoor— an adaptation of Charles Dickens classic novel Great Expectations— says the hardest thing for her in the film was to pretend that Tabu is her mother.

“The hardest thing in this film was pretending that Tabu is my mother; she does not look like my mother from any angle, she is like a friend. I enjoyed the days we spent together in the film,” she said in response to a query about the experience of working with Tabu in Fitoor.

“She is one of the warmest people and who is so down- to-earth. She is a phenomenal actress so, whenever you are in front of her, you should remember you should not get lost in her performance but, to contribute to it. We have been fortunate she was gracious enough to step in,” added Kaif.

Tabu stepped into Rekha’s shoes after she decided to make an exit from the film. Also starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Aditi Rao Hydari, Lara Dutta and Rahul Bhatt, Fitoor will hit the theatres on February 12.
