If I had to play safe, I wouldn’t be in this career, says Taapsee Pannu

 

 

Actor Taapsee Pannu, who has worked in almost three dozen films in three languages in just eight years, We have seen Taapsee Pannu in Pink and that film changed the entire game for the actor’s Bollywood career. She finally made her mark in the industry and people started registering her presence.

In an interview, she revealed that she never had the plan of making Bollywood her career. “I didn’t even plan Bollywood! I did my first film just to experience something new, and not start a career. I was filming Jhummandi Naadam (2010, Telugu), my debut film, and Aadukalam (2011, Tamil) at the same time. After both released, and when I saw the audience reaction to the first one, which I felt I was really bad in, I thought that if it can turn out like this even without really aiming or planning for it, what if I work on it like a proper career? That’s where it started,” said Taapsee.

Taapsee’s biggest commercial hit was Judwaa 2. On these lines, she said, “Working in a hugely, commercially successful film benefits everyone. I got a 10-minute role in Baby, but it landed me a title role [in Naam Shabana, 2017], which a lot of actresses don’t get even after working for decades. What matters is how good you are in the screen space you get.”

The actor added that playing safe isn’t a option now. “Agar humein safe play karna hota, toh yahaan pe nahi aate (If I had to play safe, I wouldn’t be in this career. We have to jump into the competition, and prove ourselves every moment,” said Taapsee.

Taapsee’s biggest commercial hit till date is the multi-starrer Judwaa 2, in which she was seen with Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez. Her films Chashme Baddoor (2013) and Pink also had ensemble casts, as did the 2017 film Ghazi Attack. The actor is currently prepping for Manmarziyan and Soorma.
