Actress Taapsee Pannu has been making a lot of noise lately. Be it her personal life and ‘AC problems’ to her upcoming films, she is all over. In an exclusive conversation with Koimoi, Taapsee Pannu recently opened up on the demise of Mulk co-star Rishi Kapoor. Now, she’s breaking her silence on one of the most controversial debates – Award functions in India.
Multiple times several B’Town members have come forward and called them ‘rigged’. It is often seen that A-listers or popular films take awards. And the ones who really deserve it go missing in the crowd. Shahid Kapoor had recently opened up on not getting any awards for Kabir Singh. Now, Taapsee Pannu is sharing her opinion on the same.
We played a fun section called ‘What Actors Say VS What Actors Mean’ with the Thappad actress. During the same, we asked about the much-used statement ‘I don’t believe in awards.’ To this, Taapsee answered, “I’m tired of not getting them. See awards are always about a bunch of people, basically the jury members. They decide if the person is best or not. So that can be very subjective because that group of people cannot be the ultimate decision maker of your career. They cannot decide if you’re good enough or not.”
Ask if that validation means anything to Taapsee, “It feels really nice that a bunch of people felt that your performance was the best. And that trophy looks good. But it’s not going to be the validating factor of my career, saying “ab mereko acting aa gayi hai,” shared the Rashami Rocket actress.
Taapsee Pannu also opened about the time she didn’t receive any award for her performance in Pink. “When I didn’t receive an award for Pink, I was probably not someone who’s going to add to any TRP. Or who is worth putting on stage at that point. Probably, I was not a known face that time. So, nobody even bothered. Most of them did not even nominate me. Today random people come to me and recognize me as the ‘Pink girl’. I’ve got appreciation and awards for other films after Pink because I was not worth putting out on stage. Now probably I am, so my performances are taken relatively more seriously.”
