Taapsee Pannu is a force to be reckoned with in Bollywood. She has created a separate fan base for starring in female-centric movies with bold messages. The actress also impresses us with her off-beat sartorial picks that are hot and quirky at the same time. But her recent outfit was apparently too bold for people’s liking and has gotten her in legal trouble. Scroll on to learn more.
Taapsee was the showstopper for Lakme Fashion Week recently. She walked the ramp in a red gown by Monisha Jaising and a gold necklace from Reliance Jewels’ Akshaya Tritiya collection.
The neckpiece depicted the goddess Lakshmi’s idol on it, and it is not sitting right with a section of our society. They have filed a legal complaint against Taapsee Pannu, stating that the jewellery should not have been worn with a dress with such a plunging and revealing neckline.
