During a recent interaction with a leading news agency, the much-loved Taapsee Pannu said that strong-minded actresses still face several problems because of the patriarchal mindset that is prevalent in society.
“Being a female actor, who has a strong opinion and is not willing to sacrifice or leave her self-respect is tough. Sometimes I ask myself, ‘Do I compromise with my self-respect or do I go and do something which will be for the larger good of my career?” she added.
However, at the same time, the ‘Naam Shabana’ actress stressed that things are slowly changing and now actresses don’t hesitate to take a stand on things that affect them.
“We get more security in the fact that there is much more significance attached to the characters and one just can’t replace another. That is why we are in a position today where we can say what we feel. Now we can command in a certain way. I feel female actors are now being taken more seriously than ever before. We are now an active part of filming, post-production, pre-production and promotions,” said Taapsee.
Well, these are some strong words and prove that Taapsee is one outspoken individual.
On the work front, Taapsee was last seen in the highly successful ‘Anando Brahma’. A horror-comedy, it was directed by Mahi Raghav and featured her in the role of a ghost. At present, the 30-year-old actress is gearing up for the release of her Bollywood film ‘Judwaa 2’. An action-comedy, it also features Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead.
