Kajol, Tabu, Irrfan Khan get Padma Shri
New Delhi: Talented Bollywood actress Kajol, and versatile actors Tabu and Irrfan Khan were named for the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour on the eve of Republic Day Tuesday.
Daughter of veteran actress Tanuja and late Bengali filmmaker Shomu Mukherjee, Kajol made her Bollywood debut with not so successful movie "Bekhudi" in 1992 at the age of 17.
But the 35-year-old tasted commercial success with her second outing "Baazigar" where she shared the screen with Shah Rukh Khan for the first time and after that there was no looking back for the actress. She gave hit after hit like "Karan Arjun", "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham" and most recently "My Name Is Khan". Kajol is married to Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn and they have two children.
Tabu, one of the most talented actresses in Hindi film industry, debuted in Bollywood with commercial movie "Vijaypath", but it was offbeat films like "Maachis" and "Chandni Bar" that brought her accolades and awards.
Irrfan Khan has also been conferred with Padma Shri. With his unconventional and powerful performances in "Salaam Bombay", "Maqbool", "Life... In A Metro" and "The Namesake", the actor has carved a niche for himself in filmdom.
