Kajol, Tabu, Irrfan Khan Honored with Padma Shri

The year 2011 brought recognition for Bollywood actors, Kajol, Tabu and Irrfan Khan as actors have been named for the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour on the eve of Republic Day.

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.

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.
