Taapsee Pannu, known for Hassen Dillruba, Thappad, Pink, Looop Lapeta, got into an exchange with a reporter during a recent award show when he asked her about alleged ‘negative campaign’ against her recent release Doobara.
She stated, Kis film ke against nahi chalaya gaya (Which film did not face it)?” When the journalist attempted further to ask her the question, she said, “Aap mere baat ka jawab dijiye, main aapke sawal ka jawab de dunga. Kaunsi film ke saath nahi chalaya gaya? (You answer my question and I’ll answer yours. Tell me which film did not face it).” Apparently, Pannu was hinting at Boycott Gang which has been trying hard to intervene and stop a film’s success like Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan.
When a reporter asked her critics running a negative campaign against the film, she asked him to do homework. “Ek baar thoda sa homework kar lena question pooch lene se pehle (Please do your homework before asking any question). Phir yeh log bolte hai actors ko tameez nahi hai, chillao mat (Then these people say actors have no etiquettes, don’t shout),” Pannu added.
Later, a reporter mistakenly termed Pannu as “sir”, she savagely replied, “she told him, “sir toh main hoon nahi, pehle gender theek kijiye (I am not sir, please correct my gender).”
