In this movie adaptation of Hamlet written by William Shakespeare, Tabu and Shahid Kapoor starred in the lead role which was directed by Vishal Bharadwaj. She appears to be utterly ethereal, supreme and dauntless just like the original character Gertrude. Rumour has it that Tabu was the original choice for the character and Bhardwaj was not ready to direct the film without her.

She played the role of a courtesan and a gifted musician in this Mira Nair web series based on the novel by Vikram Seth.

Her on-screen chemistry with Ishaan Khatter that stars off as casual flirtation and ends up being something much deeper is also highly captivating.
