I've been crazily adventurous with my life: Taapsee Pannu.

From a girl who loved studies to becoming an actress, Taapsee Pannu journey has been a roller-coaster ride. She says she has always been about exploring the unexplored.

Taapsee Pannu, who has featured in films like “Baby”, “Pink” and “Mulk”, featured in entertainment-based audio show “Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev” in which she spoke about her life and career, read a statement.

Asked when did she realise she wanted to be an actor, Taapsee Pannu said: “After my first film released. Actually that is true and by no means it should be taken that I don’t love my job right now. I am doing it because I am loving it. In the beginning, I have been very honest about the fact it was not something that I planned for myself.

“I wanted to do MBA in marketing and do a regular job, probably something creative but in the MBA space, but not this risky or crazy I’ll say. I jumped into this profession only to while away one year of my life while I prep for my MBA. And when movies happened, I took two films at a time — one Tamil, one Telugu to see, ‘Let’s have fun, enjoy, we will learn something new and life is not really wasted, and rather than sitting at home and only studying, might as well learn something new as well’.”

Her Telugu film became a hit while Tamil movie “Aadukalam” won multiple National Awards.

That was when she felt it was destiny’s way of telling her “something”. “I (thought I) should listen to it.”

As a girl from Delhi, how did she land up in a Tamil or Telugu film?

“I have been very crazily adventurous with my life and age has now made me sober down a little bit. But I have been insanely crazy. I love doing something which is not expected and obviously I have this fascination. This fascination took me to a place near central Delhi somewhere in the middle of forest area which was supposed to be having some weird history and haunted and all that, and I just wanted to explore.

“I am that person who loves to go somewhere where nobody has.

“I did get Hindi offers but those were like with no literally no names. I didn’t hear about those guys before nor did Google mention much. I Googled about the guys who offered films me in South and they were really big names.”

One filmmaker she really wants to work with is Mani Ratnam.

“I want to be a Mani Ratnam heroine once. Very rarely I get to be a heroine first of all, so I want to be a Mani Ratnam heroine because it is something very pure and real at the same. He is one director who can… You will be real as a character but he will still make you look aspirational at the same time,” said the “Manmarziyaan” actress. (IANS)

Actress Taapsee Pannu has reacted to the ongoing nationwide students’ protests over Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), triggered off by police violence at Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia University earlier this week, saying she doesnt have enough knowledge to comment about the matter. She added that she isn’t scared to talk about the issue but she feels that one should be responsible enough to talk about something only after having knowledge of the situation.

“I haven’t expressed my views on CAA because I haven’t studied about it. But the visuals which I saw in Jamia, I didn’t feel those were pleasant. I felt really sad when I saw the videos where students were talking about their plight. I feel something big has happened or something big is going to happen,” said Taapsee.

As a responsible public figure, she added, she would rather refrain from commenting on the issue unless she had complete knowledge of it. “If I would have been well read about the circumstances, then I would have definitely expressed my views. I am reading something new about it every day. People are judging things from different points of views,” said Taapsee, while interacting with the media at the Most Stylish Awards 2019.

She continued: “As a public figure, I am responsible enough that I will talk about something only when I am fully aware about the issue. I don’t feel scared to comment about anything but I feel that before commenting on something, I should have knowledge about it.”

Amid nationwide protests against the newly enacted Citizenship Act, a number of Bollywood personalities have raised their voice against the police action on students in Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia University and Aligarh Muslim University in Uttar Pradesh.

Asked to share her thoughts on Kisan Diwas being celebrated every year on 23rd December, Taapsee said: “I feel the central government and state governments are coming up with different provisions for farmers. They provide us food, so the more you do for them, I feel it is still less.”
