Work­ing with big names is im­por­tant: Taapsee

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Yashika Mathur

She has al­ready shared screen space with ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar in Baby (2015) and will soon be on screen with ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan. Ac­tor Taapsee Pannu (right) says she knows the im­por­tance of work­ing with es­tab­lished stars. “When you will be seen with big guys, your work will also be seen. This makes peo­ple want to see more of your work, even when you are not work­ing with big names,” says Taapsee.

The ac­tor who has done a lot of projects in the south­ern film in­dus­try made her Bol­ly­wood de­but along­side Ali Za­far in Chashme Bad­door. And now she wants to make an im­pact on mind of her au­di­ence. “An im­por­tant rea­son be­hind work­ing with big names is that peo­ple get to see you and you get to make an im­pact. Later you can do things which you want to and you can still get an au­di­ence with­out much sup­port from the big stars,” she says.

Asked if she looks at the star cast of a film even be­fore she reads the film, the ac­tor says, “I am quite new right now. I can­not think of work­ing with rank new­com­ers. I re­ally need help of peo­ple who have a bigger mar­ket value so I would like to work with peo­ple who have more ex­pe­ri­ence. So I can take their help in learn­ing and hav­ing more au­di­ence for my work. The story is im­por­tant and so is the star cast.”

How­ever, the 28-year-old says that celebri­ty­hood hasn’t changed her life. “I have al­ways been very prac­ti­cal. I have my head on my shoul­der and feet firmly on the ground,” she says.
