Taapsee Pannu is no doubt one of the most talented and versatile actresses of Bollywood. While she has impressed everyone with her serious content driven movies like Pink, Baby and Naam Shabana, she has also mesmerized everyone with her commercial movies like Judwaa 2 and her upcoming flick Dil Juunglee. One thing for sure with Taapsee Pannu is that she is a woman who can stand for her rights. As in her movies, Taapsee never hesitates to fight against the wrong and she really knows the meaning of “No means No.”
Here’s a look at 5 incidences where Taapsee Pannu proved that she is a badass woman not only in her movies but also in real life-
When Taapsee Pannu entered the film industry her initial movies failed. This created a doubt in the minds of producers and directors. A crazy phenomenon began where Taapsee was blamed for the failures of her movies. Taapsee, however, said that all the movies she has worked so far had huge star cast and big directors and producers. Yet, the failures of the movie were blamed on her and producers threw her out of movies. Talk about women empowerment in Bollywood!
Speaking about Public Harassment especially on girls, Taapsee shared an incident, “I was going to Keertan (Holy Chants) in Delhi where in the middle of nowhere I felt a guy was trying to poke me from behind. I didn’t even turn to look at him; I grabbed his finger and twisted it so hard that he winced in pain.”
We are all aware of the fact that there is pay inequality in Bollywood for female actors where the male counterparts are paid much more than the females, irrespective of talent and acting skills. Taapsee said, “Forget about equal payments, I did not get proper work in Bollywood so far. My dates were finalized but at the last moment the producers and the directors backed out because they signed a big name and for the role.” Actors have refused to work with her as she was not an “A” list actress, but she has no complaints. Indeed a perfect reply to the sexist Bollywood society.
Taapsee always respects and acknowledges her work. She is kind, humble and is very grateful to all the producers and directors who have given her the ideal platform to launch herself as a versatile actress.
Taapsee gives a perfect reply to social media trolls –
During the shooting of Judwaa 2, Taapsee posted a bikini picture of her to which one of her followers had a vulgar reply. He said in Hindi that Taapsee should be ashamed of herself for not wearing clothes and her brother must be feeling proud of seeing this picture. To this, Taapsee had a fitting reply. While other celebrities tend to keep quiet, Taapsee replied in a quirky and sarcastic way saying that she didn’t have a brother and as of now is the reply of the sister good enough??? Truly, Taapsee is Badass.
