My choice of films is reflection of my mindset, says Taapsee

Actress Taapsee Pannu is gearing up for multiple projects in the coming months, and she says that success has given her the confidence to make unusual choices when it comes to signing films. “Success has given me the confidence that I am heading in the right direction and my judgment on films are right.
My choice of films is reflection of my mindset, says Taapsee


So, my choices of films are the gift of success. If I give inputs in the process of making a film and people listen to me, it is because I have managed to become a bankable actor. Filmmaking is a business and unless producers have the confidence that investing in my films will get a financial return, why would they put their money,” said Taapsee.

Last year Taapsee also played pivotal roles in films like Badla, Game Over, and Mission Mangal. Starting her career with regular fare in the south Indian film industry, she made her debut in Bollywood with the David Dhawan slapstick Chashme Baddoor in 2012, but went on to become a face of content-driven cinema after her role in Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s 2016 film, Pink.

She also gained popularity with strong performances in films like Baby, Naam Shabana, Mulk and Manmarziyaan. How I stand for gender equality and women rights have nothing to do with success, but everything to do with upbringing. I was never told that I am any less because I am a girl. I have a sister and, whether it is education, jobs or any other choice we made, in our house my parents never questioned it because we are girls. So the choice of films that I make is a reflection of my mindset. My audience sees my belief in my choices,” she said.
