Sad we’re still talking about male-female equality: Taapsee Pannu


At a time when women are breaking stereotypes and making their mark across the globe, actress Taapsee Pannu feels it is “tragic” that the issue of male-female equality is still being deliberated upon.

“It (discussing male-female equality) is extremely sad, it is tragic. It is one of the tragedies of today’s world that we are still discussing it,” Taapsee said in an interview.

The actress plays a molestation survivor in her upcoming film “Pink”, directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.

29-year-old Taapsee, who also hails from Delhi just like her character in the film, feels molestation cases have not gotten worse over the years but are now more reported and talked about than before.

“It probably has not gotten worse, but has got more limelight now. People have started noticing it more now and it has started being covered more. They (survivors) have started coming out in the open now. Also, some have started misusing it (law) now. There are all angles to it,” she said.
