No one questioned when I played college girl at 30: Taapsee on criticism

Thursday, June 06, 2019

Actress Taapsee Pannu says she was surprised at the criticism the first look poster of "Saand Ki Aankh" received as she and her co-star Bhumi Pednekar had an amazing time taking on the characters which required them to be "double" their age.

The film chronicles the story of world's oldest sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar and feature Taapsee and Bhumi in the lead.

The poster was criticised for casting two young actors to portray 60-year-olds and not women closer to the age of the sharpshooters.

Taapsee, however, looks at the debate from another point of view.

"I was pretty surprised and laughed at it thinking, no one questioned me when I played a college girl at 30. Nobody questions when these big actors portray college characters being triple the age. At that time nothing happens," Taapsee reacted..

"It's so strange that two actresses, at the prime of their careers, decided to look more than double their age, where today an actress always wants to look younger and younger. We decided to look double the age. Instead of appreciating it, people are finding issues with it."
