Tabassum Hashmi, Tabassum Fatima Hashmi

Early Life: Tabassum Hashmi, popularly known as Tabu, was born and raised in Hyderabad. Her parents, Jamal Hashmi and Rizwana, got divorced when she was a young girl. Her mother was a school teacher, her grandfather, Mohammed Ahsan, was a professor of Mathematics and her grandmother was a professor of English Literature. She is the niece of Shabana Azmi and Baba Azmi and the younger sister of actress Farah Naaz. Tabu studied at St. Anne`s High School in Hyderabad and moved to Mumbai in 1983 and attended St. Xavier`s College for two years. She made her debut with a small role in Hum Naujawan (1985), and bagged her first lead role in Vijaypath (1994), opposite Ajay Devgn, for which she received a Filmfare Award (Best Female Debut). Career Highlights: Her most memorable performances include Maachis (1996), Chandni Bar (2001), Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities (2004) and Cheeni Kum (2007). One of the most versatile actresses to grace the screen, she can switch from menacing, as was her role in Maqbool (2003), to playing a doting mother in Ang Lee`s Life of Pi (2012) and Mira Nair`s The Namesake (2007). Both films garnered rave reviews across the globe. She won the National Film Award for Best Actress, twice, and holds the record of four wins for the Best Actress (Critics) at Filmfare. She was awarded the Padma Shri, India`s fourth highest civilian award, in 2011 by the Government of India for her contributions towards the arts. She is currently working on multiple projects, including David, a Tamil-Hindi bilingual film, Prakash Raj`s multilingual (Hindi, Tamil and Telugu) film, Un Samayal Arayil and Ulavacharu Biryani (Telugu). She was last seen in Vishal Bhardwaj`s Haider (2015), where she plays Shahid Kapoor`s mother, Drishyam (2015) Talvar (2015) and Fitoor (2016). Her upcoming movie, Ek Yodha Shoorveer, is set to release in March, 2016.
