Quote "I do films which move me and most of all, the unit and the director should appeal to me."

“Women's liberty is not being taken seriously. It's more a slogan than anything else, but I guess it's a personal issue and varies from person to person and also from home to home.”
About Her Taran Adarsh (Film Critic) :
"If there is one actress who can carry a film on her shoulders, it is Tabu. As usual, she sparkles".

Ron Ahluwalia (Film Critic – About her movie Maqbool) :
"Tabu shines in a dark role. The most versatile actress in Bollywood takes to villainy like a second nature. She is menacing and seductive, but keeps an innocent look on her face, making her even viler. The way Tabu delivers her taunts simply perfect. Her gradual insanity is heart-wrenching and her final outburst is easily the highlight of the film."
Her Views Relationships :
Are meant to be deep, strong, supportive and everlasting. But few of them are for keeps.

Life :
“Life is travel. I love to travel, see new places, meet all kinds of people. That's the time you realise there's so much than just what you are living in... there is so much to learn.”

Music :
“Music for me, is a vitamin.”

Love :
“An emotion which not many people understand.”

Qualities of an Ideal Man :
"Should be tall and understanding."
Life member of International Film And Television Club of Asian Academy Of Film and Television, Noida
