Best of 2021: 'Want to push boundaries so producers don't tell female actors 'itna budget nahi hota' and slash down our paycheques,' says Taapsee Pannu


At once, she is Haseen Dillruba and in the next breath, she transforms into the athletic and strong-willed Rashmi. Taapsee Pannu is no magician but an extraordinarily talented new-age star who feels the pulse of her audience before giving her nod to a film. With two back-to-back hits (Haseen Dillruba and Rashmi Rocket) on the OTT, the actress has proven her versatility once again in the year gone by. In PeepingMoon’s Best Of 2021 segment, Taapsee talks to our Managing Editor Ankita Bhalla about being her own competition. The screen stealer calls herself ‘greedy’ for good roles as she continues to pick up delicious and juicy characters for her kitty. Taapsee opens up her need to be a concious film producer, budget constraints in gender-backed scripts, her desire to be a cop in Rohit Shetty universe and joining forces with madcap Ranveer Singh!
