In an special interview with IndiaToday.in, Taapsee Pannu opens up on her favoritism tweet and her rumoured rift with Judwaa 2 co-star Varun Dhawan.
When Taapsee Pannu tweet about finally having learnt the meaning of favoritism, rumor mills went into an overdrive that she was sad with her Judwaa 2 hero “Varun Dhawan” for using his place as the director, David Dhawan’s, son to give Jacqueline Fernandez a meatier role than her. Even before the film went on floor, it was caught up in controversy for the supposed cold vibes between the lead cast.
However, in an restricted meeting with IndiaToday.in, Taapse refuted the rumours that her favoritism tweet was about Varun Dhawan. “Not at all! It’s humorous how they can even think… Why would I straight it towards Varun when I’m working with him in my next film and he’s my co-actor? What will I get away of it?”
She added, “Do you realise that his father is the one who launch me, he is the director of Judwaa 2? So I be supposed to be feeling more at house compared to Jacqueline, by that logic! This is the 1stt time I’m hearing this kind of an explanation, but let me set the evidence straight. It was not at all heading for towards Varun. The only way I consider people could think it was directed toward him was that I required the character of the hero and he got it. But that’s not possible.”
So who was it directed at? “Not at one individual,” Taapsee replies, elaborating, “In the South (she has acted in more than a few Telugu films and Tamil), I never faced it. But I am attractive new comparatively in Hindi, so I’m observe things around and I’m impending across a number of situation where I see favoritism. Which makes me feel, ‘Okay, this is there, at the present let’s live with it, learn to deal with it.’ I’m not irritable about it like, ‘Oh no, I’m just leaving to be helpless because it exist.’ No, it’s okay if it exists. Now I be familiar with about it and I’ll make my technique through it.”
Talking in relation to favoritism, that’s all anybody in Bollywood can talk about these days. As an stranger, what is Taapsee’s take on nepotism? “Nepotism and outsider are two sides of the same coin. Both have their cons and pros. As outsiders, we don’t have any prospect riding on us previous to we first appearance, so even if we do semi a good job, citizens give us attention and like us. But the populace who come from a celebrity background, even before they make a decision to become actors, they have the paparazzi all around them. And they don’t have a optionh, they have to face it. They have prospect riding on them with no even asking for it. That is way too much of force to job under, I feel.”
The Naam Shabana performer has a answer to this nepotism issue. “It’s largely a media created space. If you keep us on the same plinth, probably the difference won’t be there, and the debate won’t exists. The fact that we don’t get as much attention as star kids, in spite of doing good work, is why this divide is shaped.
