Tabu aka Tabassum Hashmi turns a year older today and we wish her a rocking day ahead. The actor started her career in the early ‘˜90s and since then there’s no looking back for the intense performer.
Tabu aka Tabassum Hashmi turns a year older today and we wish her a rocking day ahead. The actor started her career in the early ‘90s and since then there’s no looking back for the intense performer. Be it playing the bubbly chick in Vijaypath or the ferocious Punjabi woman in Maachis, Tabu has over the years kept a fine balance between doing commercial cinema and being a part of offbeat films. She has won two national awards…now doesn’t that speak volumes about her acting potential.
Let’s take a look at movies in which Tabu’s thespian skills have absolutely mesmerised us…
Chandni Bar: There was a quality of pathos in the way she portrayed the life of a toiling bar dancer. She danced with great vigour, she dealt with the dirty morons, she made the onscreen struggle look so real.
Virasat: She stepped into the shoes of a sweet and simple village belle in the film. The scene in which she sang ‘payale chunmun chunmun’ with a child-like innocence is simply unforgettable.
The Namesake: She was typical ‘bangla bow’ (Bengali wife) in this movie. She was sensual, she was comely…in short the perfect Indian beauty.
Hu Tu Tu: The actor looked super cute in her cropped hair in the film. She played a politician’s daughter and how can we forget ‘chai chappa chai’- an absolute feel-good song mixed with tabu’s charm made it quite a chartbuster.
Maachis: She played the fierce Punjabi woman in this Gulzar flick opposite Jimmy Shergill, Chandrachur Singh and Om Puri. Her rustic look and strong character won her both critical acclaim and commercial success alike.
