Mumbai: Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu who will next be seen in the forthcoming movie ‘Mulk’, said that cinema is the best medium for her to state her views on a particular topic and since she is not a social actor, she uses acting as a tool to reach out to more and more people.
While talking to the media when asked if she subscribes to the idea of the film, Taapsee went on to say: “From my school days I have learnt that India is a secular, democratic and republic country where we treat people from every religion with equality. In fact, that is how we lead our life around our close circuit.”
She stated: “Conflict started when we all grew up seeing a certain hatred is also growing, that we read in newspaper, see among few groups of people… Of course, such issues should be addressed and as an actress, all I can do, is use cinema as a medium to express my opinion.”
“Since I am an actress and not a social activist, cinema is the best medium for me to state my views. I cannot talk about issues randomly, so I would rather use acting as a tool to reach out to more and more people,” the actress added.
Taapsee is known for films like “Pink”, “Naam Shabana” and the short fillm “Nitishastra”, which have dealt with issues like moral policing on girls, rape and gender inequality.
