The sexiest actress in the industry, Tabu is also much in demand for her acting prowess as well. Tabu has been romantically linked with more than one actor. She is known to be going steady with a top Tollywood hero for a long time and it is an open secret.
Tabu has turned 38 recently but she is till behaving like a teenager. The otherwise professional actor was seen bunking shooting for some days to spend time with her boyfriend! Tabu is now once again having a hot and romantic fling with actor Upen Patel.
The two are painting the town red with their public appearances together. Tabu has not reported for shooting for her new film with Govinda. But she was spotted at some posh restaurants and clubs in Mumbai with Upen Patel. She is acting like a teenager who is going through her first crush.
Actor Nagarjuna has no qualms talking about Tabu openly. He said in an interview recently that he had purchased a plot for Tabu in Hyderabad.
And she has constructed a house on the same plot that was bought by him. While there is much speculation about Tabu and Nag affair, the two are playing it down. Nagarjuna’s wife Amala is said to have helped Tabu with interior decoration too.
Shooting for Balakrishnan's 'Cheeni Kum' got halted as its leading lady Tabu wounded on the sets of the film recently. As per reports, the pretty gal cut her thigh when she was getting out of her make up van. Close to the heel, Amitabh Bachchan, who's playing Tabu's love interest in the film, also is not keeping well these days. As per source, doctor advised Big B for rest for couple of days as he had a slight fever due to viral infection. The shooting was being held in Kerala. As per source, the shooting will resume soon.
The sexy Tabu is hitting forty but she has lot none of her glamour and oomph. She is still as sexy as she was some 10 years ago. Tabu is now acting in K Raghavenra Ro's mythological film 'Pandurangadu'. The working stills of the film were released recently. Tabu is looking hot and sexy in the film.
K Raghavendra Rao is known for showing all his heroines in a very sexy manner. This time he has gone a step ahead and shown Tabu in the hottest and sexiest way possible. The impact can be gauged from the fact that many producers are now eager to sing up Tabu for their next films.
Tabu is still as hot and sexy as she was more than a decade earlier. She is now acting in the film 'Idi Sangathi' directed by Chandra Siddhartha. Tabu plays the role of Abbas' wife in the film.
Tabu has done some very hot scenes and also exposed her well-endowed assets like never before. The hot pictures are now doing the rounds on the Internet. Tabu has just turned 38 but she has still maintained her figure in shape. She can give the young and so-called sexy heroines a run for their money not only in acting skills but also in exposing.
One of the longest and worst kept secret is the love affair between Tabu and Nagarjuna. Despite regulars reports in the media the two continued their affair.
The time to put an end to the affair has come finally. Tabu is said to have said a final goodbye to Nagarjuna.
The reason is that Tabu has been dating a businessman from Delhi for some time now. She is said to be happy with her new man in her life and is getting ready to marry him. The wedding is likely to take place in early 2011.
2008/4/15 12:50:32 Nandamuri Balakrishna is now all set to woo his fans with a mythological film ‘Pandurangadu’. K Raghavendra Rao is the director. The story requires the two heroines, Tabu and Sneha to romance Balayya very openly and also in a very hot way.
Bapu is known to show all his heroines in the most sensual way. Similarly K Raghavednra Rao is also known to show his heroines in the most beautiful and stunning way. He is reported to have worked wonders with Tabu and Sneha. In turn, Tabu and Sneha are reported to have outdone one another in showing oomph and glamour.
Tabu was touted to be the big draw for the film Idi Sangathi. But the film opened very weakly. The theaters were not even half full and at some places, the crowd was not even filled to 20 percent of their capacity.
The name of Tabu was expected to pull the crowds to the theaters, but surprisingly, it was not so. The director used some hot and sensuous pictures of Tabu in all the publicity posters. Even then, it was a very weak opening by any standards.
The film was also awarded the 'A' certificate by the censor, but there are not adult scenes in the film. Tabu also looked very plain and unglamorous in her role as the wife of a middleclass journalist Abbas.
For people who hoped to watch a hot and sexy Tabu, it was a huge disappointment. She simply failed to sizzle. Whatever hot scenes were there, they were all used on the publicity posters only.
Tabu is in the limelight for more than one reason. Her last film Cheeni Kum has brought her back into the limelight. She has also bought a home in Hyderabad. And she is stated to have invested in a hotel project along with Nagarjuna.
Tabu is now seen at all major functions in Tollywood. And she is naturally the focus of attention of photographers. And more so, if she happens to be clicked in Nag’s company. But Tabu is very angry and is seen cursing the photographers for clicking pictures of her with Nag. Well, if she has so many objections, then why does she appear with Nag in public? Any answers?
Tabu is well known in Tollywood not only for her roles but also her long standing friendship with hero Nagarjuna. They have acted in hit films together. It was rumoured that Nagarjuna had a steamy relationship with Tabu during the filming of their movie some years ago. But very few know that they both continue maintain a good relationship all these years. Tabu admits to this openly.
She says that if there is anyone in Tollywood on whom she can rely on, he is none other than Nagarjuna. In fact, she is supposed to have aired these views on record on a television talk show which is going to be aired in a couple of days. According to her, boyfriends come and go in life, however there is one person who is permanent and he is none other than Nagarjuna. Hats off to Tabu for expressing her views boldly.
It's confirmed. Mira Nair is all set to push Tabu's name for an Oscar nomination this year. Says a source close to the project, "Mira is definitely going to project Tabu as a potential best actress at the Oscars. Though Irrfan Khan is as good, if not better the focus of Mira's Oscar campaign for her masterly study of the Indian diaspora is likely to be predominantly Tabu."
Continues the source, "Irrfan is excellent. But he lacks what the Americans are looking for in their Oscars recipe. Tabu is exotic, glamorous and mysterious. This is her first real exposure to the Western audience. And they're lapping up her utterly –butterly Bengali act, thick accent and all. On top of that she's also wowing the westerners with her performance in Cheeni Kum."
Will Tabu be the first Indian actor to win an Oscar? "Why not?" says Mira's creative compatriot Deepa Mehta. "She's amazingly good, on a par with any of her Western counterparts."
Six years ago Deepa had offered Tabu the lead in her richly lauded Water. The deal fell apart. A lot of global cineastes feel Mira's Namesake would do for Tabu what Deepa's Water couldn’t. Tabu herself remains supremely indifferent to recognition, at home or abroad.
Tabu is still as hot as ever before. She is a big draw in Tollywood. The ravishing beauty has not lost her oomph or charm even one bit even after turning 38 recently.
Tabu has also planned her career well. She manages to remain in the media limelight even if there are no films. She has a big hero backing her fully. In fact, it is this open secret relationship that has added further interest in her and also formed an aura around her.
Tabu is now playing the lead role in the film 'Idi Sangathi'. Abbas, Raja and Sameeksha are the other leading actors. Chandra Siddharth is the director.
Chandra Siddharth is an extremely talented director. He has films like 'Aa Naluguru' and Madhumasam to his credit.
But even then, the director doesn't want to take any chances. The film is now set for release on February 22. Siddharth is now using the hot and sexy pictures of Tabu from the film very prominently in the publicity posters ad print ads.
Most of the ads show Tabu in very bold end exposing scenes. The director wants to bank on Tabu's glamour and charisma to pull in the crowds - not his story or direction, 'Adi Sangathi'.
The hot and sexy actress Tabu continues to make waves at the box office. She may be nearing 40 but she has not lost her hot looks and figure. She proved this once again with her recent film ‘Idi Sangathi’.
The 53 annual Flmfare awards were announced this afternoon. Tabu has won the Critics’ award as the Best Actress for her role in the film ‘Cheeni Kum. Amithabh Bachan played the lead role and ad filmmaker Balakrishna directed the film. This is Tabu’s sixth Filmfare Award.
Tomorrow is a big day not only for Balakrishna but also for countless Tabu fans. Pandurangadu is hitting the screens tomorrow. She is playing a prominent role in the film ‘Pandurangadu’. Tabu is said to have dominated a major part of the first half where she is shown romancing and seducing Balakrishna.
Director K Raghavendra Rao is well known for showing all his heroines in the most sensuous way in all his films. He is reported to have worked up similar magic for his latest film. Along with Tabu, even Sneha is said to have done some daring exposing scenes in the film. So it will literally be a feast for the eyes for all Tabu and Sneha fans tomorrow.
2007/12/10 13:26:15 The talented actress Tabu has been chosen to play the role of controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nazreen in a new film. Tabu is a versatile actress and she has played varied role in her career. The big production house UTV is planning to make this film. Work on the film is expected to commence in early 2008.
Tabu has acquired a new house in Hyderabad. The work on the house is complete. When asked whether she was shifting base to Hyderabad she replied in the negative. Tabu says that she will use the house as a holiday getaway. Hyderabad has always held a special place for the actor. Her friendship with actor Nagarjuna still continues to raise speculation.
Tabu is presently doing ramp shows and is enjoying it immensely. She will also walk down the ramp in Madhur Bhandarkar’s new film which is based on fashion. She is also working with Amitabh Bachchan in the film ‘Cheeni Kum’.
Tabu is not scared of any Tamil actor, but she is scared of Mohanlal!
This is her way of complimenting Mohanlal - also her reason for not acting in regional films. Tabu has acted with Mohanlal in 'Kaala Paani' directed by Priyadarshan. She recalls her feelings when working on the film.
"I was really scared. My co-actor Mohanlal had already won 3 national awards for acting. Director Priyadarshan had already made more than 50 successful films. Everyone knows about cinematographer Santosh Sivan. He has won awards on international levels.
Even now when I think about it, working with so many distinguished people really put a scare into me!"
Tabu knows a bit of Tamil and Telugu. She writes down the dialogues in English and then speaks the words fluently. She is only unable to get her Malayalam diction right! "I am scared of Malayalam and Mohanlal!" says Tabu in humor!
2008/1/9 10:19:08 Naomi Campbell's tiffs with her boyfriend delayed the shooting schedule of Karma Confessions and Holi
Debutant director Manish Gupta had a tough time dealing with Naomi Campbell during the making of Karma, Confessions and Holy. The supermodel used to have frequent fights with her boyfriend, who accompanied her on the sets, following which she refused to shoot for the day. The entire day's shooting came to a halt and other cast members were also affected.
Our source reveals, "There was some argument that transpired between Naomi and her boyfriend on the sets. Manish was shooting in some house in the suburbs of New York.
The rooms above were used as rest rooms while Manish was canning some scenes in the hall. Suddenly, the unit heard the screams of Naomi! She was yelling loudly at her boyfriend, Armeen. Naomi had even hurled showpieces and some objects kept in the room out of the window. The entire crew just stood stunned."
Later, Naomi apologised for her behaviour and even broke down before the director.
Our source adds, "Later Manish met Naomi. She broke down before him and was not embarrassed about it. Naomi apologised for having held up the shooting."
When contacted and asked about the incident Manish laughs and says, "Naomi is lonely at heart! She is also very sensitive! Naomi likes to be on guard and her anger is just her defence mechanism I guess." mumbai news

Bollywood actress Tabu says she wants to make people laugh after spending years making people cry.
The talented actress, who uses only one name, is known for serious, strong character roles in Indian cinema.
Tabu also plans to write a Hindi-language film script.
``There's truth, there's connection in writing in your own language,'' she told a newspaper in an interview published on Friday. ``I want to write about the importance of having a good childhood.''
Tabu is associated with several children's charities that look after the welfare and education of orphans and street children.
She also said that she loved comic movies so much that she was keen to act in one.
``I love watching comedies. I become an embarrassment in theaters - I fall off the seat laughing,'' Tabu said. ``I've made people cry enough. Now I want to make them laugh. I want to do a comedy.''
In her recently released movie ``The Namesake,'' Tabu plays a young immigrant bride who learns to live in a foreign country. The movie about an Indian family coping with living in the United States is based on a novel written by Jhumpa Lahiri, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Indian-born American author.
Since her debut in the early 1990s Tabu has won several national awards and acted in more than 50 movies.
