Taapsee is one of the very few commercially viable starlets and critically acclaimed performers in our B town who has gotten the golden chances of working with the legendary Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan in both the award winning films Pink (2016) and Badla (2019) and explaining the same in her recent interview, Taapsee treated Amitabh Bachchan like a young co star on sets.
Taapsee elucidated on the same during her recent interview with a leading Indian entertainment magazine publication and told, “When you think about an Amitabh Bachchan film early in your career, you think it’ll be an Amitabh Bachchan film. To get some pretty substantial parts to play opposite or next to him is a big deal. I think the chemistry works best because I’ve switched off the button in my head that he is the Amitabh Bachchan. I treat him like any other young co-star, be it Vicky Kaushal or Varun Dhawan”.
Furthermore, the actress also spilled the beans about how she used to get replaced in the films during the early phases of her bollywood career and 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”.
She also added this bit and stated, “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. It might be a little harder, longer journey but it’s going to be one that I’m going to enjoy each day. It has worked out till now”.
On the work front, Taapsee will next be seen in Haseena Dilruba which has been directed by “Hasee Toh Phasee” (2013) fame ace director Vinil Mathew. The film has been produced by Aanand L Rai’s Color Yellow Productions in collaboration with Eros International. It will be a thriller murder mystery film which also has an ensemble star cast of Vikrant Massey, Taish (Zee 5, 2020) fame ace actor Harshvardhan Rane and South film actress Hansika Motwani in key important roles. It will be releasing sometime in 2021. Her upcoming film projects include Rashmi Rocket, Shabaash Mithu and dramedy genre film Looop Lapeta.
