Taapsee Pannu, one of the most accomplished actors in the Indian film industry, opened up about her journey and the hurdles that she faced. “Bollywood camps” were definitely one of the factors. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Taapsee Pannu, said, “Bollywood camps aren’t something that people don’t know about. It’s been there since forever. It can be basis an actor’s friend circle, a certain agency or group that they’re a part of and people’s loyalties differ based on that.” The actress, who clocked 10 glorious years in the industry, said that she holds no grudges against anyone. “Everyone should have the right to choose whosoever they want to work with, or have in their films. I can’t blame them for thinking about their own careers,” Hindustan Times quoted the actress as saying.
The actress added that she was aware that everything won’t be fair in the industry even before she stepped into it so there is no point complaining. “I never came with a point of view that it’s going to be all fair in the film industry. I always knew it’s going to be biased. So why crib about it now? For me, rule of the game is that it’s going to be unfair. The tide is going to be against you most of the time. And if after all that, you still decide to be a part of this industry, then it’s your choice and you can’t complain about it later,” said Taapsee Pannu.
Taapsee maintained that the road to success isn’t easy but to keep trying is the key, “To become a part of this industry, you first get a foot in the door, and if you manage to do so, there is a struggle to be able to make your presence felt. You have to struggle to prove yourself with every film. It’s not like you have one successful film and the next 10 years are sorted for you. It does not happen like that with people who come to this industry with no background. We have to consistently keep doing good work to be able to have a standing of our own,” Taapsee said.
