Indian Actress - Tabu

Indian Actress - Tabu
Tabu (born Tabassum Hashmi on November 4, 1970 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India) is an award-winning Indian actress who has acted in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and English films. She has won the coveted National Film Award for Best Actress twice. She is best known for her critically acclaimed acting in many films rather than achieving box office success. She is considered as one of the finest and most versatile actresses in the country.

Tabassum "Tabu" Hashmi began her career in the film Hum Naujawan (1985) but came into prominence with her role in Vijaypath (1994) opposite Ajay Devgan for which she received the Filmfare Best Debut Award. This was followed by many films that did not do well as the box office. She had a minor success with Biwi No.1 (1999).

Largely considered to be one of the best actresses working in the Indian film industry, she has won the coveted National Film Award for Best Actress twice - once for Maachis (1996) and most recently for Chandni Bar (2002). Her roles in both were acclaimed and praised by the critics.

She has also won three statuettes in the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance category for Virasat (1997), Hu Tu Tu (1999), and Astitva (2000) respectively.

Despite a few exceptions, Tabu is known best for her willingness to play characters in artistic, low-budget films that go on to garner more critical appreciation than they do substantial box office figures such as in Maqbool (2003) or Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities (2004).

She has acted in a number of Telugu movies, many of them very successful, such as Coolie No. 1 and Ninne Pelladatha.

Her biggest hit to date has been the film Fanaa (2006).

She is the niece of Shabana Azmi and the younger sister of actress Farha.

She is the life member of International Film And Television Club of Asian Academy Of Film and Television, Noida.
