Can’t slap a per­son in real life: Taapsee Pannu

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

De­spite do­ing many dare­devil fight­ing scenes in films, ac­tor Taapsee Pannu (right) says in real life, she can’t even slap a per­son.

Taapsee show­cased her fight­ing skills in Baby (2015) along­side ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar. She will be seen do­ing high oc­tane ac­tion in two more films. Talk­ing about her new film, she says: “Till now, what­ever you have seen, like even though I can iden­tify my­self as Meenal Arora (char­ac­ter from Pink) in a lot of ways... I can­not even slap a per­son in real life, for­get about fight­ing the way I do in films.”

Taapsee says this is the first film where she is to­tally in her com­fort zone. “This is my do­main and have to­tal con­trol over it. I was cho­sen be­cause I had to just come as my­self on screen. It’s a bless­ing for an ac­tor. I didn’t have to put in any kind of ef­forts in terms of ac­cent, body lan­guage or style,” says Taapsee, whose char­ac­ter ex­udes a care­free at­ti­tude in the film.

We aren’t de­fended by the press or the estab­lish­ment. I urge lead­ers to be role mod­els in­stead of ac­tors RICHA CHADHA, AC­TOR Where’s the sup­port? A Shah Rukh or a Sal­man Khan have made political com­ments and it back­fired, which is un­fair ONIR, FILM­MAKER I didn’t have to put in any kind of ef­forts in terms of ac­cent, body lan­guage or style. TAAPSEE PANNU, AC­TOR
