Taapsee Pannu who has proven herself as a good actor opened up that she too had tough times in the industry when producers had seen her as a sheer bad luck.

“The time was really hurtful and scary because it even questioned my point of existence. Producers were not casting me because they thought my five scenes and two songs will badly affect the success of the film in the box office,” said Taapsee. 

Taapsee who is currently overwhelmed in the triumph of her latest ‘Mission Mangal’ added, but thank God, that part did not taken over me and I survived it.

“The films that did not go well in theatres are like battle scars for me, but for those we should be proud of. I have few of such scars, but it did not killed me rather made me stronger,” said Taapsee who also had fame in south Indian film industry as well.

Through the film ‘Pink’ which got released in 2016, Taapsee has well showcased her acting calibre and also the films like ‘Mulk’, ‘Manmarziyaan’ which got released in 2018 and ‘Badla’ of this year had captured her best performances ever.

Like she said, her films like ‘Shaadi’ (2017), ‘Dil Juunglee’ (2018) and this year’s ‘Game Over’, brought her failures as well.

Talking about her early life, Taapsee said that she was from a middle class family having no film background and when she dreamt of movies she was told by everyone that people in the industry would pounce upon her or take advantage of her.

“It was scary for me when people said I have to bend backwards or do things against my morals when I enter the industry, but the image fortunately turned out to be true and I’m proud that I didn’t compromised my ethics or bend rules to fit in,” she added.

Taapsee further said that everything has good and bad sides, but people only glorifies the bad sides.

Taapsee has a bag full of movies to be released, including ‘Saand Ki Aankh’, ‘Tadka’, and ‘Thappad’.
