Actors should never put themselves ahead of films: Taapsee Pannu

Thappad, Taapsee Pannu’s second film with director Anubhav Sinha, can be said to have ushered in a new form of cinema consumption during the lockdown. After a two-week run in the theatres, the second coming of sorts for the film occurred, following its OTT release.  "It felt like a re-release. The word of mouth about the film had just begun to travel when theatres were shut down due to the pandemic. Everyone was curious to see what the hype was about," said Taapsee in a chat arranged as part of Indulge Time Pass, a series of webinars organised by The New Indian Express.    "I knew people would have polarised reactions. I never wanted to change people. I just wanted to start a discussion. That has been my aim from Pink to Thappad," said Taapsee, who shared that her calmness during this lockdown has surprised those close to her.  "I am generally restless and hyperactive. For the past two years, I have been running around making 3-4 films every year. And if things had gone as planned, I'd have had 5-6 this year. I wasn't sure how I was going to manage it, when the lockdown was called. I have been catching up on 8-9 hours of sleep," added the actor, who has an interesting lineup of films in various stages of production.  Rattling off the list -- Rashmi Rocket, Shabash Mittu, Haseen Dilruba, the Hindi adaptation of Run Lola Run, Anurag Kashyap's sci-fi supernatural thriller, and a Tamil film co-starring Jayam Ravi -- Taapsee revealed that her scheduling has gone for a toss on account of the lockdown.
