You never get tired of watching Tabu on the screen. Today, the timeless beauty is celebrating 30 years of her debut Telugu film Coolie No 1. The actress penned a long note to thank the film’s director Kovelamudi Raghavendra Rao and producer D Suresh Babu for giving her the opportunity to star in the film. Tabu starred opposite Venkatesh in Coolie No 1.
For years Tabu has mesmerized the audience with her epic performances. The actress says that it is her work that defines her. Calling her journey slightly unbelievable, Tabu wrote, “Slightly unbelievable and thoroughly overwhelming to know that it’s 30 years since my first film Coolie No.1 released.

To thank Rama Naidu sir,Suresh Naidu,Venkatesh Naidu for giving me my first release ,for laying a solid foundation for the years to come..and for whom,I will always be Paapa.(baby in Telugu) (sic).”

Thank you to everyone who walked with me during this journey (sic).”
In an earlier interview with PTI, Tabu opened up on her work and why she prefers to let her work do the talking. She said, “There has been immense growth and progress in my personality through my work. The people I’ve interacted with, the films I’ve done…the bandwidth increases. That’s the thing of value for me. I don’t know how I would define myself minus my acting. People know me because of my work, my career.”
On the work front, Tabu will next be seen in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 opposite Amar Upadhyay. The film stars Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani in lead roles. She will also make a cameo appearance in Malayalam Bheeshma Parvam.
