Taapsee Pannu says that female actors are looked down upon by producers 

Actress Taapsee Pannu is known for her bold and outspoken personality akin to her onscreen characters. On multiple occasions, she has shared her opinion on pay disparity and improper female representation in Bollywood. During a recent interview with Gulf News, Taapsee talked about how filmmakers in Bollywood are unwilling to invest more captital on female actors im order to maximize their profits.

She said, "As a female actor in Bollywood, our big scale was not that big anyway. As a species, we were sometimes looked down upon with many saying that so much money cannot be invested in us as returns are not guaranteed."

The actress further added, "Suddenly, that bane has become our boon because no matter how big a budget/scale is given to a female actor, it doesn’t get that big where I can’t meet the demands of returns. An OTT [over-the-top, streaming] release driven by a woman will now guarantee a good profit irrespective of its scale.”

On the work front, Taapsee has films like 'Blurr', 'Shabas Mithu','Looop Lapeta' and few others waiting to release.
