As Tabu turned 50 on Wednesday, wishes poured in from all quarters. Her co-star in A Suitable Boy, Ishaan Khatter, wished her with stunning throwback pictures from the sets of the show. While her face was half-covered in the first photo, she was seen flashing a million-dollar smile in the second.
“Happy birthday legenddd! In the second picture even the rose morphed itself into a heart in the hands of @tabutiful,” he captioned his Instagram post.
Mira Nair, the director of A Suitable Boy, wished Tabu in the comments section. “Janamdin Mubarak ho Tabujaan,” she wrote. Fans also sent in their wishes. “Happy birthday Tabu ma’am, have a beautiful & blessed day & beautiful year,” one commented. “Oh scorpio clan, happy birthday @tabutiful,” another wrote.
Tabu’s friend, filmmaker Farah Khan, also dug into the archives to wish her. “Hum Saath Saath Hain! The first time i met her in 1995 at the shooting of Viraasat, and it was as if we were old friends who knew each other since childhood.. n its bn exactly like that 25yrs later..
