TAAPSE PANNU WANTS TO BALANCE FILMS WITH BUSINESSS PLANS
Films never figured in actor Taapsee Pannu’s plans — until cinema happened to her. Her primary aim was to get a business degree and become an entrepreneur. Though she has veered off that track, Taapsee might still do something in that field.
The actor got rave reviews for her portrayal of a young city girl fighting for justice in Pink and, more recently, her performance as a spy in Naam Shabana was appreciated. She says, “I enjoy acting. But I must confess that films made a back-door entry into my life. I wanted to do my MBA in marketing and then focus on startups. I already have a wedding planner company and I have a couple of more startup ideas. Slowly, one after the other, I mean to start working on them. Now, I guess I’m at a level where I can start all these businesses even without an MBA, as I have the resources to do that.”
Of late, Taapsee has been in the news for being vocal about women’s issues. She says, “I’ve always been vocal about issues concerning women. It never got highlighted earlier the way it is now.”
Talking about social causes, Taapsee says, “I have been attached with an NGO that works for rape victims. I’m also associated with an NGO for girls’ education. For a few years now, I’ve been sponsoring 10-20 girl children — this is one issue I strongly feel about. I also want to push for gender equality.”
