Kolkata, June 27 (IANS) Credited with bringing out the best in the leading ladies of his films, critically acclaimed director Madhur Bhandarkar Thursday confessed to connecting emotionally with Tabu, who played the female lead in his film "Chandni Bar".

"For me, every actress that I have worked with were great. Tabu was one who was amazingly talented. There is an emotional connect with Tabu," Bhandarkar said during an interactive session on "Women In Cinema" organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry's (FICCI) Ladies Organisation.

Tabu had essayed the role of a bar girl in "Chandni Bar" (2001) that bagged four National Film awards, including the best trophy for the actress.

"I visited 60 bars to make the film and I gathered enough materials to make two movies on 'Chandni Bar'. I was very happy that Tabu loved the script and she worked with me," said the director known for making films like "Page 3", "Corporate", "Satta", and "Fashion".

"Why should I shy away from showing the brutality? I have stuck to my convictions and made the films I want to make," said the filmmaker.

However, he refuted rumours of sequels to "Chandni Bar" and "Fashion" saying: "I don't want to make 'Chandni Bar 2'. I didn't think 'Fashion 2' will happen. If a film ends on a high note... makes the audience think and lingers in the end... that is needed."
