The trick is to not let it embitter you.
Gone are the days when Taapsee Pannu was elbowed out of projects, as her career is now soaring.
Nevertheless, Taapsee looks back at the rejections without any bitterness. “We all have gone through our share of rejections, especially the girls from outside the film industry. The trick is to not let it embitter you. I think, I’ve mastered the art of disconnect; I never allowed myself to get bitter over the rejections,” she explains.
“For me, a role and an assignment are never the be-all or end-all. Nahin milta toh zindagi nahin khatm ho jati hai (If I don’t get a part, it’s not the end of the world).”
The last time Tapsee was elbowed out was for Mudassar Aziz’s remake of the B.R. Chopra classic Pati Patni Aur Woh, where she found herself elbowed out overnight by Ananya Panday.
“I didn’t allow such incidents to get to me. Now I’ve come to a point in my career where I am spoilt for choices. I turn down so many offers because I can only do this much work. But I will make sure that I do the films that I really want to,” the actress says in conclusion.
