Taapsee Pannu Said the Character Rumi of Manmarziyan Will Help Women See Life beyond ‘Log Kya Kahenge’
In an interview, Taapsee Pannu said that when she heard the script of Manmarziyan for the first time, she judged Rumi (her character in movie). She thought that her audience won’t like it. She said that this was the biggest challenge for her.
The actor got frank about playing the carefree character of Rumi in the Anurag Kashyap directorial. She said that “Rumi from the outside might look like me, but on the inside, she is totally different. I’m not a confused person in real life, I’m very clear. She is totally confused and with full conviction she is confused!”
Manmarziyaan is a love triangle, also starring Abhishek Bachchan and Vicky Kaushal. Taapsee, who is getting to work with Anurag Kashyap for the first time, said it will be the first time a love story will roll out from a female perspective. “It’s an intense love story. And I think it is the first time, from a female point of view even for Anurag. It’s so beautiful to see two men who are not going to judge her (Rumi), who love her equally. And she loves both of them the same way. She does not believe in the regular norms of society and wants to live life on her terms. So, the women are going to be like, finally, nobody is judging us. I think Rumi will help them see life beyond ‘log kya kahenge’ and that in a way will become aspirational for a lot of girls,” she shared.
