Despite 'Pink', 'Mulk', Taapsee feels people still don't know her
With back-to-back releases, Taapsee Pannu may be on her way to becoming one of the most popular young stars but the actor says she still feels people don't know her. The 31-year-old actor, who has made a mark with her performances in 'Pink', 'Mulk', and her latest release 'Manmarziyaan', does not fear that there is overexposure on her part. Here's more.
Cannot do just 1-2 films per year, says Taapsee
"I don't think I'm at that stage of my career where it's okay if I do one or two films a year. Honestly, till the time each and every movie-goer knows about me, I will not stop doing multiple films a year," Taapsee said. "I still have the feeling that people don't really know me," she said in an interview.
After creating own audience, Taapsee will be more selective
Taapsee says once she is able to create her own audience, she'll be more selective in her choices. "I couldn't have said no to any film post 'Pink'. I don't regret any decision of mine. If I made mistakes, they helped me evolve," she said.
I want to be a star: Taapsee
Taapsee's goal is to become one of the most popular stars of her generation. "I want to be a star. It doesn't mean that I'll act any less. My performance will be at par but I want the audience to spend their hard-earned money on my tickets without doubting. And when that day comes, I'll believe I'm a star," she said.
Need to have a reality check about yourself: Taapsee
The actor believes it is important to be clear headed, confident and aware of her goals. "It's important to be confident about yourself. At the same time, you need to have a reality check about yourself and about things around you. Delusion is something that kills most of the public figures and the day you get delusional, it is like suicide point," she says.
Taapsee says she and Anurag Kashyap are like evil twins
Taapsee credits her directors and writers, including Anurag Kashyap, for giving her memorable parts. Praising the 'Manmarziyaan' helmer, she says they are like evil twins. "We both are like those evil twins, like yin-yang, biggest bullies, and critics of each other. After the film was over, we were like, 'What are we doing next together?' He is a great director," she said.
Taapsee to star in 'Badla', her second with Big B
Taapsee's next film is 'Badla', which is being directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The film also marks the young actor's second collaboration with megastar Amitabh Bachchan after 'Pink'. Recently, Taapsee received flowers and a letter of appreciation from Amitabh for her performance in 'Manmarziyaan'.
