Taapsee Pannu has come a long way from her early years — projects in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Hindi — where she was mostly a decorative afterthought. In the second half of her 11-year showbiz career, she has seemed more sure-footed. The game changer was Pink (2016) and she’s followed it up with some eclectic choices such as Naam Shabana (2017), Mulk (2018), Badla (2019), and Thappad (2020).
Her first release for 2021 is Haseen Dillruba , a thriller love triangle directed by Vinil Mathew, that drops on Netflix on July 2.
In this conversation with The Hindu Weekend , Taapsee talks about her upcoming films like Rashmi Rocket , Haseen Dillruba and Loop Lapeta , and hopes that someday soon she’d be able “experiment more” without the pressure to have multiple releases a year.
