Taapsee Pannu had to act dumb in order to work with big stars

Film industry is an extremely competitive place where aspiring actors often have to compromise with personalities and beliefs in order to make it big. Celebrated actresss Taapsee Pannu also had similar experiences during the initial phase of her career. In order to bag films with big stars of the industry, Taapsee had to follow a particular lifestyle which was not true to her personality.

She talked about the issue in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan India. Taapsee said, "In the beginning, I was told that the only way to become a star was to work in big-ticket films. Alongside big heroes, and that's what took you to the top. And that pretty much meant you had to look ultra-glam, be the diva... look a certain way, and be a certain way. And as I told you, I clearly didn't fit in. So in the beginning, I tried really hard to change myself, and to seem more glamorous and a little dumb... because, apparently, looking good equals not having a brain.”

Taapsee further shared how she had to be a part of some typical films in order to make a name for herself. However, now that she is a well known star and a producer, Taapsee can have a better control over the stories she wishes to tell.
