Tabu’s performance in director Priyadarshan’s action drama Virasat garnered her widespread acclaim and became a significant milestone in her career. In a recent interview, she recounted an amusing and memorable incident from the film’s set involving the director. Tabu played the role of Gehna Thakur, and to achieve a rustic village look, Priyadarshan insisted on her having oily hair. Initially, the hairstylist suggested using a small amount of gel to add shine. However, Priyadarshan had a different approach.

Tabu shared, “Priyan (Priyadarshan) wanted me to have oily hair and a village look. So, the hairstylist told me to take a little gel and apply it to make it look oily. When I went on set, he said, ‘I asked you to put oil.’ I said, ‘Yeah, a little. Nice shine is coming.’ So he let it go and then came back with a bottle of coconut oil from behind and poured the entire thing onto my head. ‘This is what I mean by having oil in your hair,’ he said. But then it was very easy for me. I didn’t have to do any hairstyling. I used to get ready in five minutes. Long hair, apply oil, braid it, and go to the set.”

Virasat, a remake of the Tamil movie Thevar Magan, written by Kamal Haasan and directed by Malayalam filmmaker Bharathan, also starred Anil Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Pooja Batra, and Milind Gunaji in key roles. Besides Virasat, Tabu collaborated with Priyadarshan on films such as Kaalapani (1996), Hera Pheri (2000), and Snegithiye (2000).

Tabu is set to return to the big screen with the musical thriller Auron Mein Kahan Dum Tha, directed by Neeraj Pandey, featuring Ajay Devgn in the lead role. The film also stars Jimmy Shergill and Sayaji Shinde in pivotal roles. Written and directed by Neeraj Pandey and co-produced by Shital Bhatia, Narendra Hirawat, Kumar Mangat Pathak, and Sangeeta Ahir, this romantic action-thriller is backed by Friday Filmworks and is scheduled for release on July 5.
