Taapsee Pannu breaks her silence on her disagreement with a ‘Haseen Dillruba’ review: “I needed to stand up for myself” – Exclusive! – Eagles Vine

A few days ago, Taapsee Pannu’s latest film ‘Haseen Dillruba’ released online. A certain review on the film did not go down well with Taapsee and she took to her social media handle to talk about her bone of contention with the review in question.

In our #BigInterview this week published on Sunday, August 9, we asked her: “A few days ago, Taapsee, you got annoyed over a certain review of ‘Haseen Dillruba’. In hindsight, does it augur well? Should you have taken it personally?”

Taapsee replied, “It was written personally. I didn’t take it personally. Reviewers should have a decent idea of my filmography. The reviews I got in my very early days were embarrassing to an extent that anyone would think of giving up this profession. I have always said that I am not a trained actor but someone who has learned on the job. I have never claimed to be the best actor in the industry. I have never said that I am the best choice for a film. But when you give a national platform to write a certain review, should that person make it into a personal blog?

Thrash my performance if you want; I have made a career out of thrashed performances. But if one writes that Taapsee is just changing clothes in every film and nothing else, it’s a personal dig. That’s what I called out. I thought I should stand up. People have seen me standing up for social causes and a lot of other things. But I need to stand up for myself too. Who else would stand up for me if I don’t for myself? People who think that I haven’t taken that review in my stride need to go back and read the reviews of my earlier films; I have had the nastiest things written about me. If I hadn’t taken reviews in my stride, I wouldn’t have been where I am.”

The interview above has Taapsee’s younger sister Shagun too. It’s an unmissable interview where the two ladies talk about a host of other things- from their childhood to their growing up years. Watch the interview NOW just in case you still haven’t!
