Taapsee Pannu Opens Up About Getting Replaced Because A Hero’s Wife Didn’t Want Her To Be In The Film
Taapsee Pannu is one of the leading actresses that won accolades for their acting. She has been busy with the festivities around the corner but now it seems she’s back to being active and sharing her insights and POV on social media. She is now a well-known name in the industry but there was a time when she wasn’t that successful. She even revealed that many considered her as a bad luck charm and would not sign her for the movie fearing it’s failure on box office. Before Pink happened, Taapsee was once even replaced from a movie because apparently the wife of the actor didn’t want her to be in the film.
Speaking with Filmfare, Taapsee Pannu said, “I faced some really weird things in the beginning like she isn’t pretty enough. I’ve been replaced because the hero’s wife didn’t want me to be part of the film. I was dubbing for one of my films and I was told that the hero didn’t like my dialogue so I should change it. When I refused to change it, they got a dubbing artiste to do it behind my back. There was a time when I was told the hero’s previous film didn’t work, so you slash your price because we need to control the budget. There was some hero who wanted my introduction scene changed because he felt it would overpower his introduction scene. These are the things that have happened in front of me, I don’t know what’s happened behind my back.”
Talking about it in detail as to how she managed to deal with all the problems she faced, the actress said that she decided that she will only take up films that will make her genuinely happy to go to work. She continued, “I decided that from now on, I will only take up films that will make me genuinely happy to go to work. People advised me against it because there might be a point of no return. Whenever a girl has tried to do women-driven films there’s a tag that’s attached to her and male stars are then hesitant to take her as their leading lady.”
