'I was replaced coz' actors' wives didn't want me', says Taapsee Pannu as she spoke about her struggle in Bollywood

Taapsee Pannu is one of the most versatile actresses in Bollywood. As her graph of success has been on a rise with films such as Thappad, Badla, and Saand Ki Aankh, she recalls the struggles she had to go through to reach this point. In her interview with a leading daily, Taapsee said, "I faced some really weird things in the beginning like she isn’t pretty enough. I’ve been replaced because the hero’s wife didn’t want me to be part of the film. I was dubbing for one of my films and I was told that the hero didn’t like my dialogue so I should change it. When I refused to change it, they got a dubbing artist to do it behind my back. There was a time when I was told the hero’s previous film didn’t work, so you slash your price because we need to control the budget. There was some hero who wanted my introduction scene changed because he felt it would overpower his introduction scene. These are the things that have happened in front of me, I don’t know what’s happened behind my back."

 
She further talked about her criteria of choosing films now. “I decided that from now on, I will only take up films that will make me genuinely happy to go to work. People advised me against it because there might be a point of no return. Whenever a girl has tried to do women-driven films there’s a tag that’s attached to her and male stars are then hesitant to take her as their leading lady. It might be a little harder, longer journey but it’s going to be one that I’m going to enjoy each day. It has worked out till now," added Taapsee. Meanwhile, the actress is prepping up her sports drama film Rashmi Rocket. She recently shared photos of her body she has made for her role.
