In Bollywood, Tabu is set to reunite with Ajay Devgn in the film 'Auron Mein Kahan Dum,' directed by Neeraj Pandey. This epic musical romantic drama spans over two decades, from 2000 to 2023, promising audiences a compelling narrative anchored by Tabu and Devgn's on-screen chemistry.

The duo, known for their collaborations in several successful films, including 'Drishyam' and 'Golmaal Again,' is expected to deliver another memorable performance in 'Auron Mein Kahan Dum,' slated for release in July this year.
