Taapsee Pannu, whose latest release Saand Ki Aankh is getting a good word of mouth at the box office, opened up about how she deals with the audience expectation, playing glamorous roles and her next film Thappad, that’s scheduled to release on Women’s Day 2020.
Taapsee Pannu has had a mixed bag this 2019. While she was a part of varied films like Badla, Game Over and Mission Mangal, her latest release Saand Ki Aankh, where her part (Prakashi Tomar) along with her co-star Bhumi Pednekar (Chandro Tomar), is receiving a lot of critical acclaim.
So, does always delivering a near perfect act on the big screen become challenging? In a candid chat, Taapsee spoke about why she is happy with all the expectations that come her way, how doing a Judwaa 2 was important for her and what she does when she finds herself amid a controversy.
Here are excerpts from the conversation:
Q. There is a certain level of expectation that now gets attached to your films. Is it too much to handle?
Taapsee: No no… it’s very good. I want it. I want this expectation pressure because if the audience won’t have any expectation from me, there’s no use. At least I have an image in my audience’s mind that she will do something like this. That’s the niche I’m trying to create with my audience so that they feel if I have done a film, it’ll be worth their time and money, and it’ll be something different.
