Tabu’s Truman Show moment: The actress recalls the experience of shooting her cameo in Sanju


Among the many talented actors in Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, even Tabu has a blink-and-miss role in the biopic on Sanjay Dutt.
The actress is seen as herself, presenting a Best Actor award to Sanju, played by Ranbir Kapoor in the biopic, for Munna Bhai MBBS.
Interestingly, back in 2004, Tabu had actually presented the Best Actor trophy to Dutt. The actress says, “Raju called me one day and reminded me about it. He wanted to recreate that scene for Sanju.”
It was a surreal experience for the National Award winner. She admits she was excited to do this bit. “It sounded so bizarre, it felt like revisiting the past! They (the makers) showed me the clipping of the actual award ceremony that was held in 2004.
They created a similar outfit, make-up and hairstyle for me. I went to shoot for it directly from the sets of Golmaal Again, which I was filming at the same time,” she says.
Was it a déjà vu moment for her? “Absolutely! I walked out of the set and I was like, ‘Yeh main kahaan se nikal ke aai hoon!’ I call it my Truman Show moment,” she laughs, adding that it was fun to do that one scene with Ranbir.
And what about the filmmaker? Wouldn’t she like to do a bigger role in one of his films? “Why not? Raju and I have a purana connection,” she laughs, unwilling to reveal anything further. Guess we’ll just have to wait for Raju to cast this talented actress.
