Taapsee’s portrayal of a housewife, who is obsessed with crime thriller novels and accused of her husband’s murder, proved her acting capabilities. The ways she conveys emotions through her eyes and facial expressions, proved her to be an outstanding performer.


When we are talking about Taapsee, it is impossible to forget her performance in Thappad. In the movie, she played a housewife who performs her duties perfectly at home and things were going well between the couple until her husband slaps her during a party. From here her fight begins for her self-respect. She excelled as Amrita in the film.


Anurag Kashyap’s romantic comedy featured Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal, and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles. Taapsee as Rumi seemed perfect in portraying a girl, who is rebellious and believes in doing what she wants.


Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla was an intriguing mystery thriller, in which she collaborated with megastar Amitabh Bachchan and other actors including Tony Luke and Amrita Singh. She played a businesswoman, who is a prime suspect in the murder of her lover. Big B and Taapsee’s chemistry made the plot worth watching.

The actress will be next seen in Dunki. Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film also stars Shah Rukh Khan.
