The Sunday episode of Sony Entertainment Television’s Super Dancer Chapter 4 will welcome Bollywood beauty Tabu who not only will be seen complimenting the acts put forward the contestants but also set the stage on fire with her moves time and again. In conversation with the judges – Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Geeta Kapur, it is revealed that Shilpa and Tabu have been friends for about 25 years!
Showing the duo some images from their time shooting, both Shilpa and Tabu walked down memory lane and spoke about how their friendship progressed and flourished over the years. Shilpa revealed on the show that she and Tabu became friends when Shilpa asked for a bottle of shampoo from Tabu on the sets of Shilpa Shetty’s film ‘Gambler’ and Tabu’s set ‘Vijaypath’ at Kudremukh waterfalls. This incidentally happened because apparently Judge Shilpa Shetty did not foresee that they would be shooting in a jungle where, she would not have such necessities available at hand. From then on their relationship with each other grew stronger.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra said, “Humari filme shayad…. Koi bhi picture ne silver jubilee manaya nehin lekin humari dosti ne mana li, it been over 25 years!”
Spinning the threads of stories Tabu also joined in with a story about their friendship on the sets of ‘Tarkeeb’ which was being shot on the hills of Pachmarhi. She said, “They would have eating competitions with each other, packing in bowls after bowls of gulab jamun and kheer.” After the shoot ended, apparently Tabu had to go perform somewhere but she could not fit in her outfits. “I had to perform right at that time! Nothing was fitting me because I had put on some 12 kgs!” Tabu then revealed that after eating she used to go sleep while Milind Soman and Shilpa Shetty went and exercised for hours.
Shilpa Shetty also said that on sets the trio of them, Milind Soman, Tabu and herself were called the three musketeers, “toh yeh Timpu thi, Timpu hai abhi bhi mere liye” indicating Tabu, “Silly poo (indicating herself) aur Mindu” indicating Milind Soman.
“She is the most clean hearted and the most amazing person that I have known”, said Tabu about Shilpa Shetty.
