Asked if she faced a struggle to find good work in Bollywood, Taapsee told IANS: “In Bollywood, no, I didn’t really try to find good work at all. I have been lucky that way that the offers or opportunities fell on my lap to begin with. My struggles actually started after my first film, to keep up with the kind of response I got after the first film.”
The 29-year-old actress said “just to choose the right film” was a struggle for her.
The Baby actress considers herself lucky for not going through the hardships other “good actors go through”. “Probably I have been really lucky that I didn’t really have to go through that a lot of good actors go through in the early stage of their career,” she said.
On the acting front, Taapsee will soon be seen in the upcoming film Naam Shabana and Ghazi.
Meanwhile, Taapsee is learning mixed martial arts and a bit of Japanese martial art Aikido, apart from self-defence system Krav Maga for her next movie. If sources are to be believed then the actress, who was last seen kicking some butts and packing some punches in Neeraj Pandey’s Baby, will be seen taking the action sequences to a new level. “Continuing with Krav Maga, I have also started training in basics of Aikido and MMA. It’s getting tougher and harder from what I did for Baby. It has been a month of training and I train for one and half to two hours every day, barring the days I am shooting for 12 hours,” Taapsee said in a statement.
