Mission Mangal starring Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Menen and Kirti Kulhari hit the screens today. The film has opened to good reviews from the critics. Now, in a recent interview, Taapsee has questioned why Kangana Ranaut has not praised any of the actresses from her latest release when she believes in woman supporting other women!
Taapsee in a conversation with Mid-Day said that Kangana has always said that a woman should support a woman but she hasn’t heard any praises from Ranaut for her latest release. She added that Mission Mangal has 5 actresses in it and but is Kangana praising them?
“She has always spoken about how a woman should support another woman, but I did not hear any words of praise for my films. There are five women in Mission Mangal. Is she praising us?,” she questioned.
Taapsee added, “I am her junior and don’t have [as vast] a filmography as her, but I have done a decent number of films for someone to be appreciative of it.”
About Rangoli’s sasti copy remark, the Pink actress said that she was shocked as it came from someone she always admired. Taapsee Pannu shared that she felt disappointed to read it.
The actress said, “When someone you had put on a pedestal does this, it makes you question if you were right in looking up to her. In my response, I said I am happy being a copy because she is a damn good actress.”
The Manmarziyaan actress added that she didn’t see it as derogatory and just because Rangoli said it, doesn’t make it the truth.
