TABU (Gita Patel) is widely considered one of the finest and most versatile actresses working in the Indian film industry. With over 70 films to her credit, Tabu has received widespread critical acclaim and was honored by the government of India with a 2011 Padma Shri award, recognizing her unmatched contribution to the Indian Cinema. She holds the record for the most wins of Filmfare's Critics Award for Best Female Performer, with six. Tabu first shot to fame upon winning India's leading prize for best actress, the National Award, for her role in Maachis (1997), shortly followed by the Critics Award for Virasat (1998). She won the National Award again for the critically acclaimed film from independent filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, Chandni Bar (2001), portraying a poor girl lost in a busy metropolis who is forced to become a bar dancer to make ends meet.

Tabu received worldwide recognition and widespread critical acclaim for her leading role in Mira Nair's American film The Namesake. Known to be selective about her film roles, Tabu has said, "I do films which move me and most of all, the unit and the director should appeal to me.”

Born and raised in Hyderabad, India, later moving to Mumbai to study at St. Xavier's College, Tabassum "Tabu" Hashmi is the younger sister of actress Farah Naaz. She began her work in film as a child actress, eventually earning her status as the most versatile leading lady of the Indian screen.
