Taapsee Pannu and Kangana Ranaut’s war of words is absolutely no alien concept to Bollywood. It all started when Kangana’s sister, Rangoli Chandel called Taapsee a ‘sasti copy’ of Kangana and ever since then, the matter only kept getting worse.
And now after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death when the heated argument around nepotism is stronger than ever before, once again Kangana has targeted Taapsee Pannu in her latest explosive interview with Arnab Goswami suggesting that Taapsee is a ‘B-Grade Actress’ who supports the alleged ‘Mafia Gang Of Bollywood’.
Although earlier Taapsee chose not to react, this time she decided that enough is enough and in an exclusive interaction with HT, Taapsee came out clear with what she feels on the whole scenario. We quote,
“It’s disheartening to see someone making a mockery out of outsiders and the industry that has given us so much. Imagine the parents whose kids are coming into the industry. What will they think of us? Like we are some nasty evil people sitting here to eat outsiders?”
She further added,
“In the last three years, I have been doing at least four films every year, and have five announced films right now. Who says I don’t get enough work? I decided to keep my career graph slow and steady and that’s exactly how it’s been going. Yes, I’ve been dropped out of films and replaced with star kids but the fact that Kangana and her sister (Rangoli Chandel) try to discredit me and my hard work, call me names, put wrong allegations on me, is actually an equal level of harassment, if not more. All this because I refuse to sing her tune and because I refuse to see her as the flag bearer of outsiders because we all are not bitter people?”
She concluded saying,
“I refuse to be bitter. I refuse to take advantage of someone’s death for personal vendetta and I refuse to make mockery out of the industry that gave me bread and identity. As an actor who wants to speak up and address important issues that have happened with me which can help empower others, I did speak up when I was wrongfully replaced in Pati Patni Aur Woh. I called out a wrong practice and had the director of the film supporting me then. So, it’s not like I am scared to voice out problems and people do back you when you do it with right intentions.”
