Taapsee Pannu has rarely shied away from speaking her mind. Be it interviews or Twitter, the actress is known for her strong opinions on issues not just pertaining to the film industry, but the country as a whole. Recently, when actress Payal Ghosh came out and accused Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct allegations, Taapsee stood by her Manmarziyaan director. She tweeted in Anurag's defence and called him the 'biggest feminist'. 

In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Taapsee opened up on why she feels so strongly about supporting the filmmaker. She said, "Anurag has a lot of respect for women, never badmouths anyone even if that person hasn’t been kind to him in public. His is one of those rare sets where the number of women on the crew equals men, and they only have nice things to say about him. If someone has been harassed, let them initiate an investigation, let the truth come out." 

However, she added, "If he is found guilty, I’ll be the first person to break all ties with him. But if the investigation is inconclusive, how can the sanctity of the #MeToo movement be sustained? How will real victims benefit from a power that’s come to us after years of suppression? It’s wrong for women to derail the movement. Abusing power isn’t gender-specific." 

Taapsee also said that she finds it hard to have neutral opinions. "If I am in a position where what I say matters, why stay quiet? Speaking out helps me sleep better," the actress revealed. 

She also in another interview opened up on the insider-outsider conversation and called it an 'endless debate'. Giving her own example, Taapsee told TOI, "There have been ups and downs. We keep having these endless debates about insider vs outsider but nobody really knows the solution to it and even if you do, it is not that it can be implemented because the choice of a film is a very subjective thing."

But just yesterday you were so confident about his innocence. Why doubts now creeping in? So it is possible that he isn’t the feminist you said he is?

Patriarchy means abuse is not gender specific.

Anonymous 1 month ago

actually patriarchy is a system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is traced through the male line or a system of society or government in which men hold the power and women are largely excluded from it, eg. in a family or household, society, community organized on patriarchal lines. patriarch refers to the male head of a family, tribe, community, church, order, etc. it means control by men, not by women or even transgenders etc. patriarchy divides what is male and what is female while giving power to the male. it is rigid dichotomy of gender roles. so you are incorrect. it is gender related.

A person can be saint to 100s and molest one. If someone has levelled allegations, let them proceed with law. Now they dont mind bully wood mob lynching of payal. These guys have not standards whatsoever. When it suits their story they preach X, then bring a placard for opposite of X, then back to X, fools!

Quoting Ms punnu "Abusing power isn’t gender-specific." but wasnt she saying few weeks back " smash patriarchy " in another case for the person who is dead & not there to defend himself & she dint even know him ! . This type of selectiveness really reeks of hypocrisy . admired Taapsee's guts when she said to anupama chopra that she has been interviewed by her after 5 years as compared to nepo kids . but now her opinion seems have tinge of influence of anuraag kashyap . he is becoming SWARA 2.

And how can you say that Anurag is not buying witness as Tapsee, and all is supporting him? So he also could have offered these people films in return of their support?

Anonymous 1 month ago

The evidences provided hasnt been proven yet, and as of now court hasn't punished him and he is still the accused. Accused only until punished

Anonymous 1 month ago

Because, there were/are a million of evidences against him. Now, he buying out witnesses and making them change their statements.
