Took three years to convince people that I can be glamorous: Taapsee Pannu

SNS | New Delhi |

Actor Taapsee Pannu, who will be next seen in Judwaa 2, says that I started in Tollywood with glamorous roles but it took me three years to land a glamorous role in Bollywood.

The actress started her Bollywood career in 2013 with Chashme Baddoor, where she essayed the role of Seema, “the girl next door”. Later, she forayed into different ventures like Baby (2015), where she played the role of a spy, Pink (2016), where she fought against the system for getting justice for herself and her friends and Naam Shabana, a prequel to Baby.

The actress, for the first time, has landed a glamorous role in Judwaa 2.

Taapsee, who will be seen in the shoes of Rambha, from the original Judwaa (1997), says, “It’s a fun film. It’s about a lot of dancing. It has a lot of glamour. In the south, I started off as a glamorous girl. Here it took me three years to convince people that I can be glamorous enough to be part of Judwaa 2,”

While speaking about her character, the actress compared it with the original one (Rambha).

“I am with Prem, but my character-sketch is not like Rambha’s. The scenes are different, the backdrop of the girl is different. I’m very much of a modern NRI college girl who stays in London. Even in a glamorous film, they made me a college girl next door. So, I’m a glamorous girl next door this time. So, I can’t classify as Karisma Kapoor or Rambha,” the actress added.

The film, which also stars Varun Dhawan (double role) and Jacqueline Fernandez, will release on September 29.
