Taapsee Pannu: I had told Anurag Kashyap to not make me use a lot of Hindi Gaalis in ‘Manmarziyaan’

Written by

From film choices to opinions, Taapsee Pannu is unabashedly honest. The actress, who plays a new-age girl in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan, which releases today, shares her experience about playing a character, who is ‘bratty, unapologetic and a patakha’. Excerpts…
Yes, they are. The success of Veere Di Wedding says it all. Whatever people might say about the film, its box office numbers definitely did all the talking. As for me, I have an issue with abusing in Hindi. I can still abuse in English, but despite being a sardarni from Delhi, I can’t use Hindi expletives. So, I had told Anurag sir, ‘Don’t make me give gaalis in your film because it won’t come naturally to me.” Even though my demeanour may seem aggressive, you will be surprised that in the entire film, I never abuse. It’s just the body language and the way I talk, it looks like I’m using expletives. There are no social taboos. We have seen the other side of the woman for so many years. In the last few years, women have evolved so much within the industry. Their attitude has changed and men are slowly accepting it as well. That’s why it has become more refreshing and consumable. Geet (from Jab We Met) and all are done, this is one step ahead of Geet. Jo uska mann hai Rumi woh bolegi.
