Taapsee Pannu on the ‘barriers’ she broke right from the start of her career

Taapsee Pannu seems to be on a roll as of late, juggling quite a few projects in her kitty at the moment. The actress has managed to make her mark in Bollywood as well as in the South Indian film industry as well, and recently opened up about her ‘barrier breaking’ career.

In conversation with TOI, the actress talked about how she had been acting for almost 12 years, and has completed 9 years in Bollywood. Looking back at her initial years as an actress, Pannu recalled how she was seen as a ‘Southwali’ actress when her Bollywood debut Chashme Buddoor was released. PR professionals had given her the advice that she should ‘wash off’ that image if she wanted to gain acceptance in Bollywood. Talking about how she could not grasp the logic in that statement, Pannu had decided to keep doing South Indian films.

Although the frequency of the South Indian films she did was reduced, the actress talked about how she did not leave the industry entirely. Her work in Bollywood also affected the kind of South Indian films she chose to do. The actress said that she started doing the films that ‘motivated’ her, even if they didn't offer her a huge remuneration. “I wanted to be language agnostic. For me, language barriers were broken right at the beginning of my career”, she added.

The actress was last seen in the Telugu film, Mishan Impossible, directed by Swaroop RSJ. The actress is currently awaiting the release of her films Dobaaraa, Dunki, Shabaash Mithu, Blurr and Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan.
