Tabu Biography:

Born in Hyderabad, in 1970. Tabassum Hashmi relocated to Mumbai, when she was very young. After a brief appearance in Dev Anand’s, Hum Nawjawan at the age of fifteen, she happened to lose touch with cinema. She studied at St. Xaviers college in Mumbai and took on acting after her sister, Farha Naaz married and settled down. Her first movie, Pehla Pehla Pyar was a great big dud, and her big break came in the form of Vijaypath (1994) where she came to be recognized as the  ‘Ruk Ruk Ruk’ girl. Various other flops later, 1996 came onto be the big year of her career. From there on, Tabu has moved on to prove her acting prowess not only in Hindi movies. But, also in Tamil, Telegu and Crossover cinema. Her performances in Chandni Bar (2001), Maachis (1996), and Maqbool (2003) amongst others are worth remembering. Her crossover project, The Namesake, directed by Mira Nair starring Irrfan Khan and Kal Penn, captured her ability to shine in though bleak roles wonderfully. One of the most critically acclaimed actresses in the industry, Tabu happens to the veteran, Shabana Azmi’s niece. She shuttles between her two homes, Hyderabad and Mumbai and happens to be one of the “lesser” controversial actress, in the industry right now.
