‘So-called insiders’ in the industry have never validated my films’: Taapsee Pannu

Actor Taapsee Pannu has said that she hasn't received the validation of industry insiders, and neither does she expect it (TIMES OF INDIA)

Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu has opened up about the ‘insiders’ in the film industry that have never given her validation, nor does she expect it.

In an interview, Taapsee Pannu said that she does not think that being an outsider in the film industry makes a person inferior to the insiders in any way. According to Film Companion, the actress shared that she has never seen being an outsider as any way lesser than being an insider. “Being an insider or an outsider doesn’t guarantee success. My audience will make me successful; not being an insider or an outsider.”

She continued, “So, till now, my films, whichever have worked, is because of the audience, and not because the so-called insiders validated it. No, they didn’t. They still don’t. It’s not like I expect it also, because I have reached here courtesy of my audience. They went and bought my movie tickets and made it a hit.”
