She has powered through Bollywood playing the strong, hard-hitting woman in two back-to-back films besides another in the pipeline and Taapsee Pannu says she wants to take a break from the action dramas by adding colour and glamour to her career with 'Judwaa 2'.
The 29-year-old actress debuted her action girl avatar in 'Baby' in 2015 and then followed it up with 'Pink', which highlighted the issue of women empowerment and the importance of consent in the country.
Taapsee will also be seen in 'Naam Shabana', which is a spin-off based on her character from 'Baby'.
She has decided to break to her string of action roles by opting to star in her 'Chashme Baddoor' director David Dhawan's comic remake 'Judwaa 2'.
"I want to play roles my age and my type also. I am a huge Bollywood buff. I have grown up watching masala films all my life. I love to dance and have fun. I am an audience to such films so why should I not do such films?”
"I have seen 'Judwaa' and all of David sir's films. I wanted to shift and break from what I have been doing. If I don't do it then it will be boring for the audience. I am really looking forward to adding some crazy, fun colours and glamour to my career," said Taapsee.
The actress may be looking beyond the action genre but she is excited about the release of 'Naam Shabana'. Taapsee says the film is an experimentation for the whole cast and crew but it is definitely worth the risk.
"It is the first spin-off and that too of a female character. The filmmakers are taking a risk by making a film on a girl. I am looking forward to it. It is an experimentation for everyone. I am excited to see the reaction of the audience. It is worth the the risk because it has opened up a whole new genre in Bollywood."
