Taapsee Pannu is well-known for her bold and bindass attitude. The ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ actress is one of the few B-Town celebrities who speaks her mind without any apprehensions. Taapsee, who has worked in some exceptional female-oriented movies, recently made shocking revelations on the misogynistic approach of the industry.
In a recent interview of Taapsee with the Times of India, she questioned the unjust treatment of the film industry, saying “How many times do you see a male A-lister feature in a female A- lister’s film unless he is co-producing it, but the opposite happens all the time and no one bats an eyelid. It’s tedious to find actors to be a part of a film where the actress might have 10-20% more screen time.”
Further in the interview, she added, “There have been times when actors, who have done lesser films than me, refused to co-star claiming there was nothing ‘heroic’ about their part. Not just me, Deepika Padukone, who has worked with such big names, had to work with a fabulous actor like Vikrant Massey in Chhapaak, Kangana Ranaut paired up with Jassie Gill for Panga, Alia Bhatt with Vicky Kaushal in Raazi, Vidya Balan with Manav Kaul for Tumhari Sulu. You see the pattern? Actresses never do that.”
Taapsee Pannu is known for her work in ground-breaking movies like ‘Thappad’, ‘Pink’, and ‘Badla’. She is currently gearing up for her next release ‘Rashmi Pocket’, directed by Akarsh Khurana.
