Actor Taapsee Pannu, who will be next seen in Pink, recently saved a girl from being molested. The incident happened when the Baby actor was shooting in her hometown Delhi, which is infamously known as a unsafe place for women.
Taapsee, who frequently travels in metro, was returning from a shoot one day, when she witnessed a girl being eve-teased. Realising what was happening, Taapsee ran to her help and made sure that the girl reached home safely.
When asked about the incident, Taapsee said, “When I was going towards my car from the metro station I saw these guys who were passing comments on a girl when she was alone. I approached that girl without any second thought and asked her if I could drop her to the place she was meant to be at. I was a stranger to the girl and I wasn’t sure if she would take my help readily but I’m glad she came with me. I feel anyone, not just myself, in such a situation should do their best to extend a helping hand.”
Taapsee plays a rape victim in Shoojit Sircar’s Delhi-set thriller Pink. The film revolves around three girls who were trapped in a criminal case. The crime thriller also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Taring in lead roles and is scheduled to release on September 16.
