From portraying strong characters in films like “Pink” and “Naam Shabana” to doing glamorous roles in “Judwaa 2“, Taapsee Pannu has a diverse career graph and she would like to maintain that in future.

Asked if she will do more glamorous roles like her charachter in “Judwaa 2”, Taapsee said, “I want to maintain that. I am an actor and versatility is the part of being an actor. I wouldn’t want to closet myself in one type of role.”

On the opening day of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Spring/Summer 2018, the actress walked the runway in a glamorous free flowy gown for brand “Label by Ritu Kumar”. She enjoyed every bit of her walk. “I am an actor walking on the runway and not a model. I will be extremely bad if I walk as a model as I can’t keep a straight face. I love to enjoy what I am doing and that’s what I was doing,” said Taapsee who can’t wait for her next film “Dil Junglee” to release.

About her love for the brand, Taapsee says that their association started during her college days in Delhi. “During my college days in Delhi, there were only a handful of designers and most of them ended up being too heavy on your pocket. This was one brand that was very savvy in terms of affordability, so I ended up saving a lot of my pocket money and the first ever designer piece that I got was of this brand. It’s a sense of accomplishment that I am walking for this brand now,” said the actress.

So how will she define fashion? “I think when you own your style, it becomes fashion. Fashion is not something that overpowers your personality. I think it should gel with your personality so well that your personality shines out of it,” she said.
