Mumbai: Taapsee Pannu may have debuted and eventually rose to fame in Bollywood sans a Godfather or the so-called ‘filmy background’ but that does not make her bash the big guns of this industry.

Taapsee, who is riding high on the success of ‘Pink’, has a big budget film lined up for release this month opposite Akshay Kumar.

 

According to Taapsee, the film industry is far more welcoming now-a-days. The debate about nepotism will always be there. “We can never do away with it but we have reached a point where the ‘so-called’ outsiders are not helpless. We do have people who recognise our talent like Shoojit da (Shoojit Sircar), Neeraj sir and Shivam sir (Shivam Nair, director of Naam Shabana). They have come up to me and they have worked with me again. Even David sir for that matter, whose own son (Varun Dhawan) is in the industry. He has launched me and is working with me again. You don’t feel the step-motherly attitude anymore,” the actress was reported as saying.

 

After the war of words that triggered between Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar when the actress called the producer a ‘torch-bearer of nepotism who could not tolerate outsiders’, Karan gave it back to her saying if she is so miffed by the ways of the industry, she should leave. Taapsee, an ‘outsider’ herself, has a different viewpoint on the supposedly alarming issue of nepotism prevalent in Bollywood.

Meanwhile, ‘Naam Shabana’, a sequel to 2015 blockbuster ‘Baby’, is releasing on March 31.
