Taapsee Pannu: From girl-next door to an accomplished artist

Taapsee Pannu: From girl-next door to an accomplished artist

Taapsee Pannu started her filmy career in 2010 with Tollywood film ‘Jhummandi Nadam’. Three years later she debuted in Bollywood with ‘Chashme Baddoor’. 

Taapsee Pannu is not one of those ‘glam queen’ actresses in Bollywood. Just like her contemporary Alia Bhatt, Taapsee has carved out a niche for herself in Bollywood films. Despite her slender figure and breathtaking face features, Taapsee chooses to down-play her body and instead choose meaty roles based on her acting skills.

Having worked with her in films like ‘PINK’ and ‘Badla’, the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan claims that Taapsee is an accomplished artist. After starring in some 15 odd South Indian films she made her Bollywood debut in 2013 with David Dhawan’s ‘Chashme Baddoor’ directed by David Dhawan was a decent hit.

Fast forward to 2015, Taapsee was seen in 20-something minute extended cameo role alongside Akshay Kumar in the super-hit film, ‘Baby’. Little did we know that she’d go on to become one of the most promising actresses of the future.

Taapsee went on to star in ‘PINK’. Her soul-stirring performance as a troubled friend, a devastated female got her more eyeballs than Amitabh Bachchan who played a significant role in the film.

Later, Taapsee starred in films like ‘The Ghazi Attack’ (2017), ‘Naam Shabana’(2017), ‘Judwaa 2’ (2017), ‘Mulk’ (2018), ‘Manmarziyan’ (2018) and ‘Badla’ (2019), ‘Game Over’ (2019) and ‘Mission Mangal’ (2019). She has two pending releases for 2019 – ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ releasing on 25 October 2019, ‘Womaniya’ and ‘Tadka’ releasing in December 2019.

The coming year of 2020 also looks quite busy for the stellar actor. Taapsee will be seen in sports-drama film, ‘Rashmi Rocket’ by Akarsh Khurana and a female-oriented film that defies narrative of typecasting women, ‘Thappad’ releasing on 6 March 2020. Besides, she has also been locked down for Mithali Raj’s biopic, ‘Agra Ka Dabrra’ opposite Ayushmann Khurana and John Abraham’s untitled next.

Taapsee is known for her sartorial choices in films because she knows how to leverage her ‘strong woman’ image in Bollywood. She has never been the one to trade away medium-budget, excellent films for some glamorous role in a Khan movie.

According to her, she is yet to become a superstar like Salman or Shahrukh whose names are enough to pull the crowd to theatres. Taapsee Pannu has become a hot-favourite property amongst film-makers because of her great film choices, growing popularity and steady place in competitive Bollywood industry.

Up until now, Taapsee has served her fans with one great performance after the other. Let’s see what she’s on to next in 2020!
