Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu, who got much praise for her performances in Pink and Naam Shabana, surely knows how to balance her acting career in Southern industry as well. The actress, who started her acting journey in Telugu and Tamil films is now a bonafide actress in Hindi films as well. The powerhouse, who is a big star in South-Indian films says Hindi cinema hasn’t really exploited the horror genre. In comparison to South and Bollywood, Taapsee Pannu said that she thinks horror is a genre which Hindi cinema per say hasn’t exploited much till now
“I have done two extremely successful horror films in South, my last release in a southern language ‘Anando Brahma’, was horror. It did brilliantly well and so did ‘Kanchana 2’. I think horror is a genre which Hindi cinema per say hasn’t exploited much till now,” Taapsee told IANS over the phone.
“I have come across a couple of directors with scripts… who want to explore the genre… The thing is not many see horror separated from erotica till now. That is why I guess of late, we don’t have many options to boast about the thing that this was horror and not erotica,” she added.
“In south, horror is the most exploited genre and the most successful genre as well. In fact if my own horror films from the south are made in Hindi, I would love to act in those,” she further said.
On the work front, Taapsee has geared up for three Bollywood films- Mulk, Soorma and Manmarziyan, all belonging to different genres. Taapsee says that while Soorma gave her the opportunity to portray a sportsperson, something she always wanted to do, Manmarziyan has fulfilled her dream of being a part of a pure romantic film.
