Tabu says cinema reflects society choices and conceptsAcclaimed actress Tabu, whose upcoming film “De De Pyar De” is about a 50-year-old man’s relationship with a 26-year-old girl, says cinema does not work in isolation and it always reflects societal choices and concepts.

Tabu was interacting with the media at the trailer launch of “De De Pyar De” along with her co-actors Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet Singh, director Akiv Ali and producer Luv Ranjan here on Tuesday.

Though the age gap has been experimented with as a theme several times in Hindi cinema — including in Tabu’s very own “Cheeni Kum” — will there be a time in Hindi films when the female character will be shown older than her male counterpart?

Tabu says cinema reflects society choices and concepts

Tabu said: “If certain things are accepted in society, then I think films will reflect that. I think the older man and younger woman concept is more widely accepted in the world and in society, so, we see more of it on-screen. I am sure that societal choices and the way we live will reflect in cinema because cinema is not happening in isolation.”

When Tabu was asked if she feels that actresses have less shelf life as compared to actors in today’s time, Ajay chose to give an answer.

He said: “I think this kind of a question is outdated because the time has changed. Today, actresses have more shelf life or as much life as compared to the male actors. It’s not true at all and I am sure everybody will agree with it. There is no difference in shelf life anymore. It was there earlier, but now it is not the case. I think Tabu is here, Kajol is here and there are so many of them who are still working in films. So, things are changing.”

Ajay is returning to a romantic comedy film after a long time. He said it was a fun experience.

“De De Pyaar De”, produced by T-Series and Luv Films, will release on May 17.
