Taapsee who has achieved a lot like an outsider in the film industry added that once an actor asked her to change her introduction scene so that she wouldn’t overpower him.


"There was a time when I was told the hero's previous film didn't work, so you slash your price because we need to control the budget. There was some hero who wanted my introduction scene changed because he felt it would overpower his introduction scene,” Taapsee said.

She revealed that these are the things that have happened in front of her while she didn’t know what was happened behind her back. Hence, she decided that she will only take up films that will make her feel happy to go to work.
