Recently, Taapsee Pannu said during a press conference that the trend on social media calling for boycott of Hindi films is nothing but a “joke”, one that undermines the viewers. According to the actor, she has passed the stage of “being bothered” by social media trends.
“If something like this (boycott calls and trolling) happens on a daily basis, one ceases to be bothered anymore. It becomes useless. There is a dialogue to this effect in one of my films,” Pannu said during a press conference here on Thursday.
“I cannot talk about others in the industry, but for me and Anurag, it has become a joke,” she added.
“Dobaaraa” is jointly produced by Ektaa Kapoor’s Cult Movies, a new division under Balaji Telefilms, and Sunir Kheterpal and Gaurav Bose’s banner Athena. The movie is a mystery drama revolves around how a woman named Antara (Pannu) gets an opportunity to save the life of a 12-year-old boy who witnessed a death during a thunderstorm which happened 25 years ago, by getting connected through the television set during a similar storm in the present.
