Here’s what Taapsee Pannu has to say on not getting nominated for ‘PINK’


It’s the season of awards but like every year, this time too some celebs have had to experience the feeling of being left out in terms of no nominations, leave aside the winning part. Actress Taapsee Pannu who gave a fabulous performance in Shoojit Sircar’s hard-hitting courtroom drama ‘PINK’ got a positive response from the audiences and critics, but her performance went unnoticed at awards shows this year. She didn’t win an award for her stellar act and in some award shows, she didn’t even receive a nomination.

Speaking on the same, Taapsee said that she has got used to being ignored at award shows. Taapsee spoke to a leading web portal, “My performance in ‘Pink’ has gone unrecognized by all the awards functions this year. So, let’s not point fingers at any one awards’ organizers. I am used to being ignored for awards. My aim is become a favourite among the audiences. Awards are not as important as audiences’ approval of the work I’m doing.”

She also spoke about the movie being ignored in major categories at the recently held Filmfare Awards. She said, “I think ‘Pink’ has proved what it had to. No award can further endorse its message. If Pink is not given awards, our achievement is not diminished in any way. The awards can’t equal the numbers of hearts that we’ve touched.”

One cannot ignore the fact that actor Akshay Kumar who has worked with Taapsee in ‘Baby‘ was also excluded from nominations at the Filmfare Awards. Here’s what Taapsee had to say on this. She said, “I don’t want to think about awards and waste my time. I am busy working hard so that my films become successful. This is more important to me than these awards. I am sure Akshay sir feels the same way.”

The actress has 5 films in her kitty, ‘Naam Shabana’ with Akshay Kumar, ‘RunningShaadi.Com’ with Amit Sadh, ‘The Ghazi Attack’ with Rana Daggubati, ‘Judwaa 2’ with Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez and ‘Tadka’ with Nana Patekar and Ali Fazal.
