Taapsee Pannu is one of those Bollywood actresses who is making their own way through their own choices. Taapsee is unabashedly honest about everything, may it be her interviews, her choices or her roles. Taapsee is seen playing a new-age-young girl in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan.
During a recent interview with a leading daily, she shared some of her experience about playing a character that is bratty, unapologetic and bold.
Since she is playing a bratty and bold character she was asked if she thinks that the audience is more accepting towards the actresses abusing on screen.
“Yes, they are. The success of Veere Di Wedding says it all. Whatever people might say about the film, its box office numbers definitely did all the talking. As for me, I have an issue with abusing in Hindi. I can still abuse in English, but despite being a sardarni from Delhi, I can’t use Hindi expletives. So, I had told Anurag sir, ‘Don’t make me give gaalis in your film because it won’t come naturally to me.” Even though my demeanour may seem aggressive, you will be surprised that in the entire film, I never abuse. It’s just the body language and the way I talk, it looks like I’m using expletives. There are no social taboos. We have seen the other side of the woman for so many years. In the last few years, women have evolved so much within the industry. Their attitude has changed and men are slowly accepting it as well. That’s why it has become more refreshing and consumable. Geet (from Jab We Met) and all are done, this is one step ahead of Geet. Jo uska mann hai Rumi woh bolegi.”
She also said that she don’t understand these festival films which are extremely intellectual.
“I’m not a consumer of indie content and I don’t understand these festival films which are extremely intellectual. A lot of people love doing them, but I don’t and I have no qualms in admitting that. I can’t do those films. I’m part of the little intelligent commercial audience and I’ll do films which might be offbeat but still have a commercial element. It can’t be boring where you don’t even understand the world it has created. It has to be entertaining; somewhere in between ekdum unconventional and ekdum nonsensical films.”
