Actress Taapsee Pannu is busy in the Bollywood with four films releasing this year. However, the actress says she would never stop films in the south.
Actress Taapsee Pannu is now busy in Bollywood industry with four films releasing this year. The actress is enjoying the phase. After the success of Pink last year, the actress has a scheduled pack. However, Taapsee, who started her acting debut with the Telugu film, Jhummandi Naadam (2010), says she would never discontinue regional films down South.
“The kind of work I am getting in Bollywood is pretty satisfying, and I plan to work hard so that it continues. But that doesn’t mean I won’t do movies in the South Industry. I will continue doing them. I don’t think it’s difficult to balance provided you really want to work,” says Taapsee.
Recently, the actress finished shooting for her next upcoming Telugu film which is a horror comedy directed by Mani Raghav and the film is expected to release this year. “After my Telugu movie, I am now hoping to take up a Tamil film, for which the discussions are already on. Now that languages aren’t a restraint, I plan to take up at least one film in a year. I feel it would work in my favor in terms of the options that I would have at hand.”
After the success down in the south, the actress was considered as a newcomer, though Pink (2016) and Baby (2015) changed the viewpoint a bit. She confesses finding the tag as a newcomer was annoying, as she felt she was being pushed to a corner in the long line of struggling new talents.
She concludes “It was very annoying in the beginning when even after having done certain films, I was constantly compared to those who haven’t even done one-fourth of the amount of work I had done. I couldn’t say to everyone that I am not a newcomer and I have done all these films… But I guess this is how the protocol works. Everyone only considers Hindi films as the standard of judging how big or small an actor is. So I decided to wait till the time they probably would value me more. I am expecting that after watching the upcoming four movies, people will stop calling me a newcomer.”
