Taapsee Pannu’s Fun Birthday



Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu turned a year older on August  1  with a subdued  birthday celebration with only her  immediate  family.

 Says Taapsee, “Mom and Dad came visiting.So I  spent the day with them away from my phone. I am getting back to virtual world now to see all the wishes and  love sent my way.”

  Taapsee  likes to celebrate  her  birthdays  the  conventional way. “There  was  a cake, candles and normal celebrations.”

The Thappad actress  has acquired the reputation of  featuring on strong feminist  roles  says she is  not  afraid of  the  future.  “The audiences’ expectations  challenge me  to do better and better.

And that’s fine.”

   Not that she  is  not open to  smaller non-pivotal parts. “I am open to  smaller parts  such as as Soorma and  Mission Mangal as long as  I’ve something to contribute to the plot.I  have to be relevant. But I can’t do small  roles where I  the audience  goes home with  me  making no impression. That would backfire.  There  was a Telugu  film I  did  two years  ago where I  was  there in  the  first-half then I vanished  in the second-half  and then  I returned  in  the  last twenty  minutes. I   could feel  the audiences’ waiting for my return in the plot.  That kind of expectation is  both scary and  exciting.I feel if I do an inconsequential role  audiences will feel cheated.  And that’s a  bitter-sweet  feeling.”

 Taapsee feels responsible  towards  the  audience. “They  should never feel let down  by my films. I don’t want them  coming out of  the theatre muttering, ‘Yeh kya bakwas dikha diya?’
