Many celebrities do not seem to be particularly happy with the paparazzi culture and several have expressed their reservations about being clicked by the shutterbugs. One such Bollywood celebrity Taapsee Pannu has been unapologetic about her reactions and she would not sugarcoat her reactions.
Lately, Taapsee has had a few run-ins with the shutterbugs. While some of her disagreements have occurred at public events, others have happened during her airport spottings.
In a recent interview with India Today, Taapsee spoke about the incidents that have happened in the recent past with the photographers. She said, “It does bother me because, after a point, I realised that they are doing it knowing they are going to irk me. Why will you hold my car’s door when I have gotten in? This is intruding on my private space. Imagine if you are getting into your car and there are people who have held the car door and not let you shut the door and shoving the camera in your face, will you like it? Any person, regardless of being a girl or boy, would you like it?”
The 35-year-old actress asserted that she doesn’t have any bodyguards to protect her space and this shouldn’t encourage others to intrude on her space.
“I walk without bodyguards. Just because of that, you have the liberty to shove your cameras and mic into me, physically, and not give me a regular human being’s breathing space just because I’m a public figure. It gives you the liberty to violate my personal space. And then, obviously, the icing on the cake becomes when the media make headlines that I’m arrogant. If I’m arrogant to ask for basic human respect of space, then please call me arrogant, but I will not just try to sugar-coat and be this good girl because I’m in front of this camera. I am not that person. You get what you see,” she said.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Taapsee Pannu will be seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki alongside Shah Rukh Khan. She also has Woh Ladki Hai Kahan in the pipeline.
