Tapsee ready to be­come an A-lis­ter

Post - - Bolly / Kolly -

AC­TRESS Taapsee Pannu, pic­tured, who has made her mark with films like Pink, Naam Sha­bana and Jud­waa 2, says she is yet to crack the code of be­ing an A-lis­ter in the Hindi film in­dus­try.

This year has not been great for Bol­ly­wood, but Taapsee’s Naam Sha­bana can be counted as one of the high­est gross­ing fe­male-cen­tric films.

Yet, Taapsee won­ders why she isn’t counted among the top.

“I am yet to find out the def­i­ni­tion of be­ing an A-listed ac­tress. What does that mean? See, as an ac­tress, I am happy that peo­ple are of­fer­ing me good roles and I am earn­ing suc­cess crit­i­cally and com­mer­cially. But it both­ers me when a de­signer says, ‘no, Taapsee can’t be my muse or the show stop­per, I want an A-lis­ter ac­tress for this col­lec­tion’.

“It hap­pened with the brand en­dorse­ments as well. So, I am say­ing that I am ready to give the en­trance exam of en­ter­ing the club of A-listed ac­tresses, but can some­one please tell me the for­mula?”

Taapsee tran­si­tioned from the South In­dian film in­dus­try to the Hindi movie world.

She made her de­but in Bol­ly­wood with in 2013 and landed roles in films like Baby, Run­ning Shaadi, The Ghazi At­tack and Pink.

She has started shoot­ing for Anub­hav Sinha’s new di­rec­to­rial ven­ture Mulk, also fea­tur­ing Rishi Kapoor, Ra­jat Kapoor, Neena Gupta and Prateik Bab­bar. – IANS
