Taapsee Pannu recently experienced a terrifying ordeal because photographers pestered her at an event for pictures. Taapsee and the photographers got into a type of argument when the actress wouldn’t stop. The incident occurred on Monday, August 8, while the actress was attending a Dobaaraa promotional event at Mumbai’s Mithibai College. When the photographers informed Taapsee that she arrived late to the event and wasn’t even stopping for the shots, the argument broke out. She was quite upset about this.
Taapsee was led inside the location as soon as she arrived and constantly being stopped for photos by the photographers. Paps are heard in a video that has gone viral telling the actress that they have been waiting for her for two hours and that she is late. The photographers can be heard saying, “Taapsee ji, rukiye (Taapsee ji, wait)”, “do ghante se ruke hain taapsee ji (we have been waiting for the past two hours)” and “aap ruk kyun nahi rahi hain, taapsee ji (why aren’t you stopping)?”
After ignoring them for a few moments, Taapsee finally stopped and responded. She first told them that she isn’t stopping because she has an event to attend. When the photographers told her they, too, have been waiting for two hours, she retorted, “Yaar daant kyun rahe ho? Isme meri kya galti hai? Mereko kyun sunaa rahe ho? (Why are you yelling at me? What is my fault)?”
Taapsee added, “Mujhe jo bola gaya main kar rahi hoon, aap mere pe kyu chilla rahe ho? (I am doing whatever I have been asked to do, why are you yelling at me).” While paparazzi told her that they are also waiting for her, Taapsee said to one paparazzo in particular, “Please talk to me in a respectful manner, I am just doing my work. I have arrived on time at every place I have been asked to. You will talk to me respectfully, I will also talk to you respectfully.”
Taapsee’s co-star Pavail Gulati came and stood behind her. The actress continued, “The camera is on me, so only my side can be seen. If it’s on you for once then you would have realised how are you talking to me.” After some more exchange of words, Taapsee folded her hands and said, “Aap hi hamesha sahi hote ho, actor hi hamesha galat hota hai (You are always right, and actors are always at fault).”
