Tabu and Ajay have known each other for over 25 years, since they were teenagers. They have worked in many hit films together, and are again coming together on screen soon. Talking about how Ajay was partly the reason why no boy would ever approach her, she said,
He was my cousin Sameer Arya’s neighbour and close buddy, a part of my growing up years and that has laid the foundation of our relationship. When I was young, Sameer and Ajay would spy on me, follow me around and threaten to beat up any boys who are caught talking to me. They were the big bullies and if I am single today, it is because of Ajay.
