Mumbai: Actor Taapsee Pannu has established herself in the film industry by essaying fiery and radical characters. The 'Manmarziyaan' star, who is quite outspoken about equal rights for female actors, feels Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan has been given more credit than her for their film, 'Badla'.
"Even when I do films like 'Badla', I had more working days or scenes so to say than Mr. Bachchan. He was the hero of the film, I was the antagonist. But the antagonist has more presence in the film than the protagonist. But eventually the film releases, they call it an Amitabh Bachchan film."
The 'Pink' actor added, "Yes, when I raise my voice and say I've done almost equal if not more, that's when people recognized and started taking my name because it's such a male-dominated industry, they don't even realize that I might have done more work actually. It was called Sir's film, it won't be called a female film regardless of the fact that I have more scenes, it will be called an Amitabh Bachchan film and the credit will go there," Taapsee said on Neha Dhupia's show, according to a report in pinkvilla.com
Meanwhile, Taapsee will next be seen in Anubhav Sinha's 'Thappad'. The actor has worked with the director earlier in 'Mulk'. 'Thappad' will hit the screens on March 6 next year, two days before the International Women's Day....
