Pink actress Taapsee Pannu made her acting debut with the 2010 Telugu film Jhummandi Naadam. She starred in the successful film Baby. She next played the title role in the film Naam Shabana, a spin-off from Baby and went on to star in the drama Pink, the war film The Ghazi Attack, and the comedy Judwaa 2.
Recently, she said, “I am waiting to “shift gears” into a massy, commercial cinema with a film like Judwaa 2, in which she starred opposite Varun Dhawan last year.
“I have been busy doing other films, my calendar was so full. Also, I think audience have loved me so much in this type (referring to serious) of a role that they are not ok seeing me there. I am like, let me do it for my breathing space. I don’t know if I should feel good or bad about it. But I am still waiting and struggling to get a film like Judwaa 2 again to shift gears,” she added.
The actress did not charge any fee for her last Telugu film as she wanted to help the producers to keep the budget in check. She stated, “I have worked for about eight years in South Indian cinema. I can take that risk over there. I am newer to Hindi cinema. But, I might do that (profit sharing) in the future. The audience here knows me but not as prominently as it is there. The day the audiences know me well here too, and come to watch my films I will do that,” she added.
She will star opposite Ali Fazal in Sujoy Ghosh’s remake of the Spanish film Contratiempo and also starred in Soorma as hockey player Harpreet opposite Diljit Dosanjh.
