Tapsee ready to become an A-lister
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
