To achieve stardom in Bollywood purely on the basis of talent is far from being a walk in the park. Then again, we have actors who have achieved stardom on their own, of course. The latest Bollywood sensation to have made it big is none other than Tapsee Pannu, who hit the bullseye with her terrific performance in Shoojit Sircar’s Pink in 2016.
But the bubbly beauty was not always an actress. She is a software professional with a penchant for gadgets which she still flaunts proudly. Not wanting to end up in a 9-5 job, Tapsee decided to reject IT jobs and began modelling. Even that did not last long as she decided to step into the film industry when modelling stopped being interesting. She made her debut in the Telugu romantic musical, Jhummandi Nadam. Thus, her journey to stardom began and in the following years, she starred in a lot of critically-acclaimed films like the National Award–winning Tamil film, Aadukalam opposite Dhanush.
Bollywood opened its doors for this stunning beauty in 2013 when she was seen in David Dhawan’s Chashme Baddoor. The Delhi girl surprised audiences in Baby, in which she played an undercover agent alongside Akshay Kumar. Thereon, there was no stopping, and Tapsee became the fresh face of Bollywood. Last year was a big one for the lady as Pink gave her the opportunity to become the voice of millions of women. With this film, Tapsee showed everyone her acting skills were not to be taken for granted and she is more than just a pretty face. She undoubtedly went on to win multiple accolades and awards for her electrifying performance in the film.
2017 looks like a promising year too for the actor as she will be seen in five films. Every film will feature a different side of the actress. Naam Shabana is very likely to add another feather to her cap. Serious cinema doesn’t deter her from being a part of commercial entertainers like David Dhawan’s upcoming Judwaa 2.
Tapsee thus aspires to be an all-round performer and doesn’t want to be labelled under a particular genre. She will also be seen in Runningshaadi.com, the much talked about The Ghazi Attack and Tadka. Her journey, especially in Bollywood, has been highly interesting. As her fans, we wish to see the gorgeous actress play interesting characters. For now, we can only wait for her 2017 releases to hit the theatres.
