Tapsee Pannu is leaving her mark in the Industry with back to back hits. After sharing the screen with Sr. Bachchan in Pink in 2016, she has added some remarkable names to her cap including Naam Shabana, The Ghazi Attack and Judwaa 2. She even has some interesting movies lined up in her kitty including Manmarziyaan and Soorma. However recently rumours have spread that Tapsee Pannu refused on working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Read to know how much truth prevails in this rumour.
Tapsee Pannu’s reply to the rumours.
When Tapsee Pannu was asked whether she refused the movie as she didn’t want to work with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, she dismissed all the rumours. She said that as an actor a lot of scripts comes to them. But it is practically not possible to accept each and every script. Reasons may vary for letting down a film but for her it will never be a pretext that she doesn’t want to work with a particular actor and so she has refused a film. She has never done that and will never do that in future as well.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui on the rumour.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui also took to his Twitter handle to dismiss the rumours. He said that an actress claimed not to do an action film with him and clarified that he is not a part of any action cum thriller film and so it is baseless.
An actress claimed to not be doing a thriller film with me.
Would like to clarify that in the first place, I was never a part of any thriller film.
So basically it's all baseless.

So both the actors themselves have clarified their sides dismissing the rumours completely. Talking about their on going projects, Tapsee Pannu is busy shooting for Anurag Kashyap’s upcoming film Manmarziyaan opposite Abhishek Bachchan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui is working on Balasaheb Thackeray’s biopic.
Tapsee Pannu’s stand on film fraternity’s silence on sexual harassment.
Besides shaming the rumours on her not working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tapsee even shared her view on why the film industry is silent on sexual harassment. We all know that like any other industry, sexual harassment is prevalent even in film industry. The only difference is people are not opening up on the same with the fear of being misunderstood and judged. She added that the #MeToo campaign that was viral in Hollywood last year is yet to start in Bollywood.
Tapsee Pannu even adds that fortunately or unfortunately she has never had to face any sexual harassment cos had she faced it she would have definitely not remained silent on it. Not that it doesn’t happen in the Industry. It does happen as she has seen people talking about it. But as they don’t want their career to be affected due to it, they choose to remain silent. The fear of getting misjudged considering it to be a cheap way of publicity and losing the fan following people remain silent.
While the Hollywood is naming and shaming their abusers, the film fraternity here is still very silent.
Hopefully we’ll be able to see some bold step from the beautiful actress of our B-Town in the near future.
