She has tasted suc­cess with her films in the South movie in­dus­try as well as Bol­ly­wood, but Taapsee Pannu (be­low) says she prefers to keep her­self grounded.

“I know how it is when you’re made a star overnight, and what hap­pens when your movie doesn’t work. I have seen both sides, so I am us­ing that experience now. Try­ing to keep my head on my shoul­ders and han­dle suc­cess and fail­ure equally,” said Taapsee.

Taapsee made her act­ing de­but with 2010 Tel­ugu film Jhum­mandi Naadam and fol­lowed it up by fea­tur­ing in Tamil film Aadukalam which bagged sev­eral awards. She stepped into Hindi films with Chashme Bad­door in 2013 and did a small role in Baby but it was last year’s Pink, her third Hindi film, that brought her ac­claim. Taapsee is cur­rently gear­ing up for her next, whose pro­ducer Shoo­jit Sir­car re­cently called her an ac­tor ‘un­pol­luted’ by star­dom.

About this, Taapsee says one of the rea­sons for that could be her at­ti­tude to­wards work. “I have my own life, which is be­yond films and I main­tain that. Films are just one part of my life, act­ing can­not take up my en­tire life. That is prob­a­bly one rea­son which keeps me away from the whole jing-bang of star­dom.”

I have my own life. That is one rea­son which keeps me away from the whole jing-bang of star­dom TAAPSEE PANNU, AC­TOR
