Taapsee Pannu Says ‘I’ve Been Replaced Because The Hero’s Wife Didn’t Want Me To Be Part Of The Film’; Reveals Weird Rejections She Faced
Actor Taapsee Pannu was busy working during the festive season. The actress has managed to one a long way since her Bollywood debut in 2013 with Chashme Baddoor and has also won hearts on the way. Her stellar performance in films has now got her some good roles in the movies, but there was a time when even Taapsee faced some really weird things. Now, Pannu recalled the time when she was called a ‘bad luck charm’ and when producers were shy of signing her. The Thappad actress revealed how she was once replaced because the hero’s wife did not want her to be a part of the film.

Speaking with Filmfare, Taapsee Pannu 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.”

Talking about it in detail as to how she managed to deal with all the problems she faced, the actress said that she decided that she will only take up films that will make her genuinely happy to go to work. She continued, “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.” She concluded saying that it might be a little harder, long journey for her, on the part she's decided to take, but it’s going to be one that she is will enjoy each day. She also mentioned that her this plan has only worked out till now.
