Received flak for my fashion sense initially: Taapsee
Actor Taapsee Pannu says that while today she does not seek anyone’s approval for her clothes, the criticism for her fashion choices in the beginning of her career was quite discouraging.
When asked if she is fashion-conscious, the Pink actor said, “No I am not. Initially I used to. When you begin, the kind of flak you get for anything an everything is extremely disappointing. But then after sometime you realise it’s hard to make everyone like you.”
The actor said she has stopped trying to convince people that she is wearing “perfect clothes.”
“You can never do that. There is no way everyone will approve of what you’re wearing, so just do what makes you happy. It eventually shows and people tend to buy it if you are owning it. I have now given up on trying to convince each and everyone about the fact that I am wearing perfect clothes.”
The actor was speaking at an event for fashion brand Nautica. After a short stint in modelling, she finally, decided to act. Taapsee made her acting debut with the Telugu film Jhummandi Naadam. The 29-year-old actor said she has become comfortable with her choice of clothes, and understands that fashion and style are subjective.
“It’s very subjective. What I might like the other person might not. The flak I received, it makes you a little sad in the beginning but you realise ‘Ok fine, I must have gone wrong somewhere if everyone is talking bad about it.’ “You need to accept and work on it a little bit, but after some time you just see what you are comfortable,” Taapsee said.
Taapsee Pannu will be seen again in ‘Meera’- the prequel of critically acclaimed film Baby.The movie reveals the backstory of Tapsee’s character ‘Meera’ in Baby. The film will also have Akshay Kumar and Manoj Bajpayee in pivotal roles.
