Actor Taapsee Pannu has carved a name for herself in bollywood industry through her movie choices and amazing acting. After doing critically acclaimed female centric films such as Naam Shabana, Pink and Thappad this actress has played an important role in bringing wave of feminism in bollywood films.
When talking about who she credits for changing the way audiences look at female actors now, Taapsee named three actors. For Taapsee, Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan and Tabu have brought drastic change in mindsets about how seriously a female actress in Bollywood is taken.
Speaking to Filmfare for their June issue, Taapsee Pannu said, “If I have to choose three names who have made the audience look at the female actors seriously then I’ll name Vidya Balan, Tabu and Priyanka Chopra. Vidya because she did such mind-blowing films like The Dirty Picture and Kahaani back-to-back and showed us this is possible. Tabu because she always makes us curious about what she’s going to do next and Priyanka because of all that she’s achieved not just here but abroad as well. All three have helped change perceptions about female actors for the better.”
