Kolkata: Actress Tabu says it is a "myth" that filmmakers feel she will not accept a role that is anything less than the best one.
"They think that if they come to me with less than the best role in the film, she will not do it, whether it's comedy or whatever. They feel, 'give her the best role in the film or she will refuse it'.
"So that's the myth they have about me," the "Chandni Bar" actress said here when asked on the roles that pass her by possibly because certain filmmakers feel she prefers intellectual characters.
The National Award winner said she was okay with the labels people ascribe her with.
"People will put a tag that is convenient to put on you rather than what you are. I am happy being who I am," she said at the Kolkata Literary Meet.
