The 1990s were an extraordinary decade, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of the audience. The era was characterized by succinct yet relatable narratives in music videos and memorable characters in movies.

Speaking of the ’90s, it’s impossible not to mention the actors who graced that period. While some have faded from the limelight, there are others who continue to grace the silver screen, endearing themselves to us time and again. One such luminary is Tabu.

Tabassum Fatima Hashmi, renowned as Tabu, stands as one of India’s most exceptional and versatile actors, a testament to her enduring appeal.

Her ability to seamlessly transition from action to romance and her recent captivating portrayals in thriller films have solidified her status as a genre unto herself.

As Malini in “Fanaa,” she demonstrated her intensity and portrayed a strong-willed character, both bold and fiercely independent.

In “Drishyam” and “Drishyam 2,” her portrayal of Meera, a mother and an officer, was nothing short of brilliant, keeping audiences on the edge of their seats.

Simi from “Andhadhun” remains an all-time favorite character. Her transformation from a naive wife to a chilling murderer and, ultimately, an unscrupulous lawbreaker was a masterstroke.

Notably, her presence as Manjulika and Anjulika rescued “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2,” elevating not only the film’s plot but also its overall quality.

Tabu’s collaboration with director Vishal Bhardwaj has yielded some of Hindi cinema’s finest and most critically acclaimed works. “Maqbool” and “Haider,” adaptations of William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” and “Hamlet,” showcased some of Tabu’s most exceptional performances. Intriguingly, this duo also worked together in “Fitoor” and “Chachi 420,” with Vishal Bhardwaj contributing his musical talents.

In Vishal Bhardwaj’s forthcoming crime-thriller, “Khufiya,” Tabu assumes the role of Krishna Mehra, a RAW agent tasked with unmasking a mole divulging the nation’s defense secrets. It is beyond doubt that she will once again leave an indelible mark with her performance, as she has consistently done throughout her career.
