Taapsee Pannu thoroughly deserved her award for Thappad. She is as ever brilliant. When I congratulated her she said, “I think this movie had a lot of people wishing some wonderful things. It touched so many so deeply that Thappad ended up making it big at the awards. Of course I feel grateful but primarily so soooo thrilled because so many from our team won awards. The people who were the backbone of the film. And it won best film. Nothing tops that. Filmmaking is all about team spirit. No team ,no movie.”
I joked that soon she would have no place for her trophies in her livingroom. Taapsee replied, “I don’t keep them there. I have a separate box that I keep my trophies in. Away from my and everyone’s sight. I don’t want to forget living my life normally and looking at the trophies staring at me all the time and building performance pressure. So I keep them in my own little treasure box.”
Incidentally Tillotama Shome who won the Critics’ award for best actress in Sir, shares a newly-formed bonding with Taapsee.
Explains Taapsee, “I just came across her tweet and offered to help as she wanted platelets of the same blood group as mine. Simple.”
