Taapsee Pannu is one of the most talented actors of our film industry and has portrayed many powerful roles including that of a scientist, a lawyer, a hockey player, a sharpshooter and many more in her career so far. The Pink actor recently opened up about how popular male actors refrain to share the frame with her.
In an interview Taapsee talked about how A-list actors are hesitant about starring in women-led films. She also revealed that even the new actors do not want to act in her movies.
Listing the excuses that the male actors make for not working with her she said, “One actor refused to do a film (in which she had a double role), saying ‘ek Taapsee ko sambhalna mushkil hota hai, yahan toh do hain’. There was another actor who was offered a film with me and we had worked together before. He just said, ‘I don’t want to do this film because, actually, the sympathy goes more to the girl in the end.’ It was a love story! I told him I expected a little more confidence and a sense of security in an actor like him. He has done way more films and is a bigger star. But that’s the sad truth we are dealing with every day.”
“Every time I sit down with my producers over a list of the top five actors shortlisted for my films, those top five actors are the ones who have done just one or two films. And even they don’t want the role, because the system around them trains them to not do a film in which their role is just 10%,” Taapsee explained.
On the work front Taapsee was recently seen in Rashmi Rocket. She will soon be playing the lead in Aakash Bhatia’s Looop Lapeta, a remake of cult-hit German film Run Lola Run. She is currently working on Shabaash Mithu, in which she will essay the role of cricketer Mithali Raj. She also has Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan with Pratik Gandhi in her kitty.
