Yesteryear actress Tabu acted opposite most of top stars in Tollywood in her heydays is making comeback to Telugu cinema with Anushka starrer female centric film Bhagmathi being directed by Ashok of Pilla Zamindar fame. Pandurangadu released way back in 2008 was last Telugu film of Tabu who is regularly doing films in Bollywood.
The makers initially approached Nadhiya for the role of CBI officer. Even, Nadhiya was ready to act in the film at a pay of Rs 20 lakhs. The makers then thought Tabu will be better pick for the role. They signed the actress agreeing to pay a whopping remuneration of Rs 60 lakhs.
Reason for the makers changing opinion over Nadhiya was she was already seen in such role in Venkatesh starrer Drishyam. Tabu who played the same role in Hindi version of Drishyam won accolades for performing the role accurately and her presence will bring freshness for Bhagmathi.
Above all, with well built body, Tabu can be an able fit for the cop role, than anyone.
