Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, the ‘insider-outsider’ debate or nepotism debate was rekindled. After Kangana Ranaut spoke up in a recent chat and made some comments over Taapsee Pannu, the Thappad actress opened up about what outsiders mean in a recent chat.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise last month kick started the nepotism debate once again in Bollywood. While fans of the deceased actor called out big names like Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra and more for nepotism and launching star kids, actress Kangana Ranaut stood up for him and questioned award shows for not acknowledging his work like Chhichhore and more. In a recent chat, Kangana also called Taapsee Pannu ‘needy outsider’ after which netizens’ opinion split up.  Now, talking about outsiders, Taapsee has spoken up in an interview. 

In an interview with News18, Taapsee spoke up about the debate of nepotism and how actors like she, Sushant, Kangana, Swara Bhasker, Richa Chadha and others are tagged outsiders. She explained that those with no filmy background are tagged ‘outsiders.’ Further, Taapsee also said that like all outsiders, she too has had her own journey and fights. She even highlighted the common points between her and Sushant’s journey but clarified that she did not know him at all. Further, talking about fighting her own battle, she claimed that she was dropped from Pati Patni Aur Woh and that is when she said she fought for herself. Taapsee further stated that she did not get help or support from anyone including Kangana, who she claimed, fights for outsiders. 

Talking about it, Taapsee said, “Outsider is the label or tag that we get. Actors like me Kangana, Swara Bhasker, who are not from a film family. We are all outsiders and we have had our journey. Further, Taapsee recalled how Kangana says that she fights for rights of outsiders and explained that Sushant and she fought their own battles without support. Taapsee said, “We all fight our own battles. All outsiders have fought their own battles. Sushant was fighting his. I fought my own battle. I did not ask for support when I was fighting my battle. I spoke up when I was replaced in Pati Patni Aur Woh. Nobody, especially, she (Kangana Ranaut), because she says she fights for our battles, she didn’t come and support me, I didn’t ask for it also, because I fought my own battles. Deepika was asked to be beheaded somewhere, she didn’t come and support that outsiders”

I spoke up when I was replaced in Pati Patni Aur Woh. Nobody, especially, she (Kangana Ranaut), because she says she fights for our battles, she didn’t come and support me, I didn’t ask for it also, because I fought my own battles.

Highlighting the common points in her and Sushant’s journey, Taapsee said, “I did not want to bring this up at this time, but both Sushant and I have had similar journeys. Both of us are engineers, we entered Hindi cinema in 2013. He came via television, I came from the south film industry. Both of these are considered tags that need to be shed when you enter the industry. The kind of hardship that he has gone through, coming from Bihar, I don’t think a person like that can be so fragile. We have studied in schools right next to each other in Delhi. But I don’t want to talk about those similarities right now because I have never met that person. We have never even crossed paths at events.”

Explaining why she did not want to bring up Sushant and her similarities, Taapsee said, “So I suddenly can’t get into the debate just to get my two bits of attention and try to have my personal vendetta.” 

Taapsee and Kangana recently engaged in a war of words after the latter made some remarks in a recent interview of hers post Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. Taapsee has also been actively tweeting about it since Kangana’s interview and actors like Swara Bhasker also joined in the debate.

Tapsee’s comments are getting dumb every time I read them. She is losing what ever respect she earned so far. Soon she will see the results. Kangana can’t fight every time an actress/actor loses an opportunity. She is raising voice for a cause so that so many like Tapsee and Sushant don’t lose an opportunity for some talentless nepo actor. Period. And this lady can’t even comprehend that single concept . What we see as cause looks like personal vendetta to her small mind. Lady, grow up or quit talking.

Tapsee was able to do so but in Sushant sir's case he fought his battle till his death alone Kangana or anyone never helped him but now we all know he was murdered so we're including Kangana ma'am just asking for the proper justice if they can't help us then tell them to shut their mouth and watch what we're able to do

Kangna is raising voice for an outsider who i s no more with us. Neither she knew him personally nor she crossed path with him. And about standing with outsiders... she is constantly raising her voice against nepotism from last few years. You really expect her to come and fight for each person individually? Wow1! In your personal vendetta against her combined with paid troll on behalf of movie mafia, you have lost your mind completely. Or may be you always were this dumb, woman! Loved watching your movies, but not anymore.

I think Tapsee is being jealous of Kangana . She is a hypocrite . At one point she was arguing with Kangana and around the same time she wants Kangana to support her . This is diplomatic . She wanted Kangana to support her when she herself was at a war of words with Kangana . Tapsee just stop it u can't achieve what KANGANA has achieved . I think u have to take next birth to be parallel to Kangana . U are so afraid of opening Ur mouth against Nepotism . Shameless .

Taapse, do you really think millions who are taking part Black Lives Matters knew George Floyd who died unfairly due to police violence. No they did not but that single incident create space and freedom to question the violence and unjust against the black lives and that discourse is still live and on going. So your claim not knowing Sushant personally, but do not forget he was fellow film artist/ actor who worked in the industry. Your comment is so in humane . Nepotism in Bollywood is a discourse which has been on going it is still alive and you can not simply say , I raised it when it happens to me but not now as this is Kangana is raising the same issues once gain she drew the parallels between what she has gone through with Sushant giving difficult issues he may have faced. However, I did not say Kangana was ridiculing was right but you could not rise above and give your fair opinion. Thanks.

Dear Tapsee ... ur only movie I have watched was the one that had varun dhawan in double role (I can’t even remember the movie title). Back to the real topic, it seems that ur brain isn’t functioning properly to be announcing to the world that Kangana never came to help u out when u were replaced in Pati wor auh. Like seriously? Is Kangana the wife of Aditya chopra, or the girl friend of KJo? This Tapsee is truly delusional. Thank God she was replaced in the movie, coz truth be told I wouldn’t have enjoyed that movie watching her play the super-sexy (that Ananya nailed). Not a fan of Nepotism at all, but Tapsee needs to stop n get her head checked. Just saying ...

I remember Taapsee calling Neena Gupta ji (an outsider like her)attention-seeker when Neena ji also expressed her displeasure over casting young actors in elderly roles.she should practice what she preaches, kangana outrage might be turning point for outsiders who dream hard but as for you, it's the reverse, you can only teach them not to cry because of nepotism and it's fine to get humiliate and removed out of projects.

If Taapsee didn't make a big deal out of her getting replaced from a film, then why should Kangana? Kangana and Sushant both spoke up about nepotism in their own ways, but Taapsee always remained diplomatic to remain in the good books of directors & producers and hoping to get included in their circle. So why question Kangana now? Kangana is especially making a big deal out of this now because an amazing talented actor gave up his life and it IS a big deal. I'm sorry Taapsee, but you are coming off as the hypocrite here. If you can't speak for your self, why should others?? Kangana spoke up for herself and instead of applauding that people called her crazy and psychotic. She was literally bullied and you are crying about something as petty as this? Shame on you!

This post itself shows her reality.. Kangana is fighting against Nepotism only and this is what she has been trying to change what Tapsee faced but Tapsee has moulded herself in a way that she accepts Nepotism existing in industry she is okay with it ..she choose not to raise any voice against it and let things be as they are and this incapability of her not raising voice against Nepotism makes her feel insecure and ultimately lashing out at Kangna for the truth she spoke . This triggerance of Tapsee shows that whatever Kangana said was truth.

Kangana just has ego problem. She believes she is the only 'QUEEN' here. I know nepotism is problem and only only kangana is not affected by it. If kangana really wanted to fight against this nepotism and end it, she would have teamed up with taapsee, swara, sushant etc outsiders. But no. The problem is, she only wants to gain attention. Speak up against the nepo gang. But along with that also support other outsiders. This is a much easier way to fight and end nepotism. But as i said, she only wants to gain attention, thats it!!!

Taapsee, a man has died. That he was bullied, isolated, made fun of is coming to light. Kangana shared her own experience of having to fight nepotism while demanding CBI enquiry. It is a month since Sushanth was laid to rest, we never heard you talk about being ousted from Pati, Patni aur Woh? You could have said it then. Lent creedence to the argument which you know is true. There was talk Huma Qureshi replaced you in a film because she was friendly with the director. Is that so?

Anonymous 3 months ago

Hmmm, so Kangna using SSR to talk about her own struggles and furthering her fight against KJO, Alia etc, is lending credence to the argument, but Taapsee can't talk about being replaced?? Hypocrisy much? Also, not everyone needs to jump into every debate and make it about themselves, just like Kangna does. You guys expect every celeb to join the social media noise, and if they don't that means they are against justice being given to SSR. FFS, stop being a bully and troll like Kangna and her sister, who are only opportunists.

Just one question, Taapsee......what debate?? There is no debate about the system of hierarchy you work in. It's toxic.......Kangana is merely drawing attention to the TOXIC SYSTEM that SSR fell prey to. She is using her own experiences to draw parallels. She does not claim knowing SSR.....why did you think it was just about comparing commonalities??

Kangana is the one who has diverted the topic of SUSHANT’s death to nepotism. Kangana has never supported SUSHANT’s ‘sonchiriya’. She has production house she never offered film to sushant. Actual topic was mental health not nepotism. how the actor who has worked with YRF, UTV and DHARAMA be a neglected by big production houses??? If sushant can deny the films offered by BHANSALI and ANURAG KASHYAP then no one is responsible for his death but only himself and his mental health. So the topic should be mental health . But the person who has changed that topic to forward her own agenda is KANGANA. No doubt that she is GREAT actress but she in this issue she is forwarding her own agenda...
