Taapsee Pannu needs no introduction! She is an accomplished actress who has proved her mettle not only in Bollywood but in the South Indian film industry also. In fact, she began her journey down South with a Telugu film called Jhummandi Naadam (2010). The actress, who recently clocked nine years in showbiz, says that she was a novice when she debuted in movies as she had never acted and had no plans to make a career in it. She reveals that she joined films with the intention of experimenting with life.
After doing 10 films in Tamil and Telugu, Taapsee Pannu transitioned to Bollywood and made her smashing debut with filmmaker David Dhawan’s superhit comic-caper Chashme Baddoor (2013). Though she received terrific response for her first Hindi film, she did not cut her ties with the South Indian film industry and kept doing at least one regional movie there every year.
The award-winning actress says that she never used the South as a stepping stone to Bollywood and never wanted to choose between the two. She emphasises that she wanted to work in both simultaneously. It took a while to find a footing in both industries though.
After a terrific 2019, Taapsee Pannu is now looking forward to four releases in 2020, and all of them feature in completely different avatars. She reasons that with so many releases in such a short span, it is essential not to repeat yourself.
Taapsee Pannu will kick-start 2020 with the release of filmmaker Anubhav Sinha’s social drama Thappad. Her next film Haseen Dilruba is an intense love story and then there are two sport films, Rashmi Rocket and the Mithali Raj biopic based on the life of the captain of India’s women cricket team. She also headlined an untitled espionage-thriller down South, which is targeting a mid-2020 release.
