Taapsee Pannu is slaying it at the box office with her performance in Badla which released yesterday on Friday. The movie sees her star alongside Amitabh Bachchan in the revenge thriller directed by Sujoy Ghosh. Taapsee has given noted performances in movies like Naam Shabana, Pink among others. However, the actress considers herself an average looking Indian girl. She, in an interview with TOI, said, "I am an average Indian girl, who isn’t extraordinarily good-looking and that is my biggest strength."

Adding that the characters she plays resonate with the average Indian women who are her core audiences. When quizzed about her ability to call a spade a spade, at the time when everyone indulges in diplomacy. Taapsee stated, "Speaking the truth is a lot easier. Putting up a façade or a certain image is a lot of hard work. I am a very lazy person, so I refrain from lying as I would forget what story I have cooked up before. I won’t be able to remember the cover-up."

She further explained, "If I am rejecting a script, I say exactly why I don’t like it, without mincing my words. People are pleasantly surprised when you are direct about saying a ‘no’. I get told by people to be diplomatic... they ask me to network and socialise and I tried that in the beginning, but I realised that it takes more effort than what is actually required on a film set."
