Tapsee Pannu feels that people "don't know" her

The 31-year-old actress, Tapsee Pannu has made a mark with her performances in "Pink" and "Mulk", The actress is on her way to becoming one of the most popular young stars in the industry but the actor feels that people still "don't know" her.

Taapsee told PTI in an interview, "I don't think I'm at that stage of my career where it's okay if I do one or two films a year. Honestly, till the time each and every movie-goer knows about me, I will not stop doing multiple films a year. I still have the feeling that people don't really know me."

"I want to be a star. It doesn't mean that I'll act any less. My performance will be at par but I want to be a star. I want the audience to spend their hard earned money on my tickets without doubting. And when that day comes, I'll believe I'm a star," she added.

Taapsee told PTI that she believed that it was important to be clear headed, confident and aware about her goals. "It is important to be confident about yourself. At the same time you need to have a reality check about yourself and about things around you. Delusion is something that kills most of the public figures and the day you get delusional, it is like suicide point," she said.

The actress also talked about being grateful to her directors, including Anurag Kashyap, for giving her strong and memorable roles. Praising the Manmarziyaan helmer, Tapsee said, "We both are like those evil twins, like yin-yang, biggest bullies and critics of each other. After the film was over, we were like 'What are we doing next together?' He is a great director. Internationally, he has become the face of directors from India. Anurag doesn't care about 'what people would say?'. It is something that connect him, me and my character Rumi.”

Taapsee will be seen next in Sujoy Ghosh's "Badla". The film also marks the second collaboration of Taapsee with megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
