An ageless beauty inside out, Tabassum Fatima Hashmi, aka Tabu, is one strong lady that we are all proud of. Her critically acclaimed roles have been given to her by brilliant movies like Maachis, Kalapani, Astitva, Chandni Bar, Maqbool, Cheeni Kum, Haider, Drishyam and Life of Pi. When many heroines of her age are settled by now, Tabu has still not taken the bait and is happily enjoying her single status. She has romanced some of the most renowned actors in Bollywood in the last two decades, but in real life, there is no romance brewing. Let’s take a look at the actor’s love life:
The first serious affair in Tabu's life was with actor Sanjay Kapoor. The two started dating when they shared the screen space together in the movie, Prem. The two parted ways and since then they were no longer talking to each other off screen.
The next man in Tabu's life was director/producer Sajid Nadiadwala. Sajid was coping with his wife Divya Bharti's loss, when the affair started. The two tried to keep their relationship under the wraps for a long time because of the mysterious ways in which Divya died, but the truth eventually came out.
The most talked about and longest-budding was her affair with South's star, Akkineni Nagarjuna. Nagarjuna was already married when he started dating Tabu. The two were never vocal about it. After dating him for almost a decade, Tabu realised that he is not going to leave his wife. This convinced Tabu to take the firm step and she broke up with him.
Tabu shares a very special friendly bond with Ajay Devgn. They grew up together in the same neighbourhood and she blames him for her not getting married as he used to bully any guy who would talk to her. “When I was young, Sameer and Ajay would spy on me, follow me around and threaten to beat up any boys who are caught talking to me. They were the big bullies and if I am single today, it is because of Ajay,” said Tabu during an interview with Mumbai Mirror.
In the middle of 2015, Tabu was rumored to be marrying a Mumbai business man. The multilingual actress was reported to marry an entrepreneur much younger than her. These speculations came out when Tabu made public her willingness to get married. But soon faded after days of guesswork.
