Taapsee Pannu Talks About the Actresses Who Have Backed Out When Films Had More Than One Female-Led Roles
Taapsee Pannu revealed that many actresses probably felt insecure and backed out of films that required them to share screen space with other actresses
Over the past few years, Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu has made a huge name for herself. Starring in films opposite some of the biggest names of the industry, such as Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Varun Dhawan and Rishi Kapoor amongst many others, Taapsee has made herself known. Her performances in Manmarziyaan, Badla, Pink and Game Over have been earning her a lot of praises. Her latest release, Mission Mangal – which stars Vidya Balan and Sonakshi Sinha as well - has been making big numbers at the box office as well. She is also gearing up for the release of her next film, Saandh Ki Aankh with co-star Bhumi Pednekar, however, the film's casting has been receiving a lot of criticism lately.
In an latest interview with Mumbai Mirror, Taapsee - who has had multiple female-led films in the past such as Judwaa 2, Pink, Mission Mangal- revealed that actresses have often backed out from projects upon finding out that they would have to share screen space with another actress. She said, "There have been times when actresses have backed out at the last minute because it was a two-woman project and left me fuming. Thankfully, there are others secure enough to share screen space. As women, we should be there for each other."
In an earlier interview, Taapsee had also expressed her desire to work on a two-women project, wherein both the female leads would have an equal role to play in a film. Her wish was soon granted when she was offered Saandh Ki Aankh. Shedding light on the same, she concluded, "I wanted to do a film that has equal roles for two heroines. I got to know that the team was working on one such story. It is a story of those women, who lived their life as per the desire of their parents, after marriage lived as per their husbands’ desire and will, and then lived for their children. When did they live their lives for themselves then?" Saandh Ki Aankh hits screens on October 25.
