As actor Taapsee Pannu turns 35 on Monday, here are a series of her off-reel moments which showed her admirable candid version in all of its glory.

Taapsee Pannu, who turned 35 on Monday, has never shied away from speaking her mind.

The star of renowned films such as Pink, Mulk, Thappad, and Pannu has not minced words despite the ramifications of trolling or what-not.

Here are some controversies that Taapsee Pannu dealt with like a boss:

On Kabir Singh

Reacting to a news story about a man murdering his girlfriend, Taapsee tweeted that maybe they were so madly in love with each other that he ended up killing the girlfriend, and called it an act of true love. This remark was met with a lot of criticism; she refuted the charge saying people with no sense of sarcasm should ignore her tweets.

The tweets were a dig at the uber-misogynistic film, Kabir Singh. She further spoke of Kabir Singh in an interview, where she said that the issue is not the flawed characters of the film but rather the glorification of their flaws.

Against the Ranauts

In 2019, Rangoli Chandel, the sister of Kangana Ranaut, launched Taapsee, saying some people are plying their business by copying Kangana and never acknowledging her for what she has done. She also spoke of Taapsee’s remark about Kangana’s need for double filters and urged Taapsee to stop being a cheap duplicate of Kangana.

Taapsee responded to Rangoli, saying she will not apologise for her honest opinion. She added she didn’t know Kangana had a patent on curly hair, implying that just because she looked somewhat like Kangana, doesn’t make her a copy. She said she is only cheap as she is not among the highest-paid actresses in the film industry.

Troll magnet

Taapsee Pannu underwent a rigorous routine to look the part for Rashmee Rocket. Though she was praised by many for her transformation, she was also body shamed by some. However, one can say Taapsee knows how to deal with insults better than compliments.

A troll had retweeted her picture from Rashmee Rocket with the remark that she looked like a man. Taapsee retweeted the abusive tweet and asked the troll to remember his words and wait for September 23 (2020) for the release of the film. She thanked him for his comment saying she worked hard for this compliment.

Taapsee Pannu and her staunch criticism of policies and government actions

Even though there aren’t many people from the film industry who come out to criticise the policies of the Central government, Taapsee Pannu has been one of the few to speak truth to power. Taapsee had strong opinions and remarks against some policies which were introduced by this government.

During the farmers’ protest, US-based popstar Rihanna tweeted in support of the farmers protesting against the now withdrawn farm laws. Many saw Rihanna’s tweet as false propaganda. Taapsee Pannu, who noted the irony, tweeted that if one tweet could rattle their (the anti-farmer lobby) unity, then it’s them who have to work on strengthening their value systems and not become propaganda tools for others.

After the Delhi Police’s violent crackdown on the students of the Jamia Millia Islamia during the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, Taapsee Pannu asked if it was the start or an end. She said the assault was setting new rules of the land and those who don’t fit in can very well see the consequences. She also said her heart and hopes were broken after watching the video and remarked on the irreversible damage it can cause.
