Scared of not living up to expectations after Pink, says Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu garnered a lot of praise for her performance in ‘Pink,’ but the actress says the success of the film has made her more cautious about the choice of roles she makes, as she doesn’t want to disappoint her fans. “The response I got for those 20 minutes in ‘Baby’ was very good because of which I got a lot of other films in which you’ll be seeing me next year.

“Now, it has got escalated to certain another level after ‘Pink, which makes me a little scared, now what do I choose to live up to those expectations,” Taapsee told PTI.

The 29-year old actress said a film like “Pink” is a rarity in an actor’s career, and she wants to continue to impress the audience with her future movies.

“I need to accept the fact that ‘Pink’ will not come my way again. I am just trying to be as versatile as possible and work with good directors.” There have been reports that Taapsee will star in the Telugu remake of “Pink”.

When asked about it, the actress said, “I don’t know about that till now, but if they do and approach me, I would love to do.” Taapsee has already begun filming for her forthcoming movie Naam Shabana, produced by Neeraj Pandey.

The actress shared that the first schedule of the movie is already over and the next will begin in mid-October. Naam Shabana is a part of “Baby” franchise. The first film had Akshay Kumar in the lead role and the actor will be seen in a cameo in the new movie. Taapsee said Akshay’s guest appearance will lend a huge support to the movie.

“Akshay’s cameo in the film will help, he is a huge star in our country. He is part of the film in a very big way. Just because he is giving his name, he is part of the ‘Baby’ franchise. It makes it big,” she said.

“We have a lot of good actors, Manoj Bajpayee, even Anupam Kher is a part of it because he was part of ‘Baby’, so it’s pretty interesting star cast to look forward to,” Taapsee added.
