How Taapsee Pannu has changed over the years
Talking about it in an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, Taapsee said, “I have become a very very different person from what I was in the beginning. A lot of things might not have changed also but I have noticed some big changes in me. I have a lot more tolerance for bullshit now, to begin with. I have kind of like calmed down a lot from what I was before. I was way too over impulsive at that time, very sensitive also to nonsense where people just.... without thinking if you say something even if it's not a part of my agenda in life, I will try to correct you. That kind of over-impulsive and over-sensitivity I had. Now I have calmed down a little bit. Not my monkey, not my business. I have learned that attitude a little. So, I think it's just age right which makes people a little more matured and mellowed down”.
Taapsee on what she has learned from her journey
Furthermore, Taapsee also stated that her journey in Bollywood has taught her not to take her success and failure seriously. “A lot of other things come with success, especially in this country. It teaches you not to take your success or failures either of them too seriously. That I've learned. I've not been a good loser. I still.... my family members still call me 'she's a very sore loser when I play board games'. I am a very sore loser and probably an even worse winner actually. But at work life, I have kind of become better like I don't take either success or failure too strongly now. It's not like it doesn't affect me, it still affects me and it disturbs me a little bit but I have gotten better at coping with it,” the Saand Ki Aankh actress was quoted as saying.
