She’s the woman whose strong words in Pink touched us all. She’s the woman who is unabashed about the struggles a woman faces in the industry. She’s the fearless voice that young Indian women aspire to have. She’s Tapsee Pannu, the fresh face in Bollywood who has raised the bar for successful actresses with her impeccable talent and boisterously bold moves.
Now, with being the protagonist in Naam Shabana, she has established a strong place in the industry. Here, we reprise the reasons why she has garnered respect from all corners of the country.
Her Journey until Bollywood
She had done some promising films with noted Southern stars like Dhanush, Prabhas and Arya and also recognised with the Edison Award for the Most Enthusiastic Performer (Female) in 2014. With a slew of South Indian film appearances to start with, she forayed into Bollywood with a no-brainer comedy movie, Chashme Baddoor (2013), which was a runway hit.
Cementing her position in Bollywood with Baby
After Chashme Baddoor, she finally got selected for Neeraj Pandey’s film Baby (2015). Her presence in the big-budget action release presented her acting skills to Bollywood. It’s her powerful presence in this film that propelled the makers to conceive Naam Shabana.

For the past few months, we have been noticing her exemplary stance on issues that affect our regular lives. In the furore over issues like covering up cleavage or fighting for equal rights, she remains unfazed with her opinion and voices them when the need arises. Needless to say, not only do her statements warm our hearts but they also show how real she is as a person!
She’s much beyond just breaking Bollywood stereotypes
Tapsee Pannu has carved a niche in Bollywood with her powerful performances even they though they are a few. But what is remarkable about her is the way she spreads the right message with a strong sense of self-belief.
