Tabassum "Tabu" Hashmi began her career in the film Hum Naujawan (1985) at the age of fifteen; Tabu played Dev Anand's daughter in the film. Her first role as an actress was in the Telugu film Coolie No. 1. Her first release in Hindi as a leading lady was Pehla Pehla Pyar which went un-noticed. Tabu came into prominence with her role in Vijaypath (1994) opposite Ajay Devgan for which Tabu received the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award. This was followed by many films that did not do well at the box office.

In 2000, the actress starred in Hera Pheri and Astitva. The former was a box office success whilst the latter was critically acclaimed. Hindustan Times critic Arnab Banerjee wrote of her performance, "Tabu is brilliant and once again proves her mettle as an actress. The mind-blowing range of emotions Tabu displays, her exquisite face and her subtle quiet dignity with which Tabu handles her character, will take her far in her film career." Tabu received her third Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance for Astitva. Down south, Tabu had two releases in Tamil, namely, Kandukondain Kandukondain, a multi-starrer blockbuster film directed by Rajeev Menon and Snegithiye directed by Priyadarshan along with a Malayalam release Cover Story.

In 2007, Tabu starred in her first Hollywood film, The Namesake, directed by Mira Nair. The film was a huge hit overseas. Tabu also starred in Cheeni Kum in which Tabu played a 34 year-old woman who falls in love with a 64 year-old played by Amitabh Bachchan. Critics were generally positive towards the film; Taran Adarsh said, "Tabu stands on her feet despite a formidable co-star's domineering presence. Tabu's excellent." Though the film did not do as well domestically, it was a huge hit overseas especially in UK and USA. Tabu started off 2009 by being featured on the cover of Vogue India's January 2009 issue.
