“Udta Punjab Is The Most Original And Jolting Film Since Rang De Basanti” – Subhash K Jha

Udta Punjab

In Celebration of Tabu

One of the best actresses in Indian cinema, Tabu has given outstanding performances in films in the Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali and Hindi film industries. One of the qualities that makes her such a good actress is that you never feel as if she is acting.

The actress has garnered rave reviews, as well as 2 National Awards, been awarded the Padma Shri for her contribution to cinema and many other awards during her career so far and she is still going strong.

In celebration of her birthday today we thought we would shine the light on one of our favorite actresses.

Even more beautiful now

Though lovely in her first appearance onscreen in the Telugu film Coolie No 1 and in her debut film as leading lady in Vijaypath,

Tabu, a very old favorite of Gulzar and his family, is back in the family's fold.
