Actor Taapsee Pannu while interacting with the media, shut down a person who asked her to speak to the audience in Hindi during a film festival.
Speaking in Hindi
Taapsee Pannu is among those celebrities in the industry who don’t think much about expressing their opinion in public. In the past, she has responded to a lot of trolls like a boss and she continues to do so today.
Recently, the 34-year-old actress was invited as a speaker at the International Film Festival of India in Goa. While she was responding to questions from the audience, Taapsee was interrupted by a man who asked her to speak in Hindi as she is a Hindi film actress.
Taapsee replied saying, “Sir, main to pura Hindi me baat karsakti hoon, par kya yahan sabko Hindi samajh aayegi? (I can have the entire conversation in Hindi. I don’t know…does everyone know Hindi here?)” and the people shouted “no”.
The man continued, “She is a Hindi actress,” to which Taapsee said, “I’m a South Indian actress also. Tamil, Telugu mein baat karoon? (Should I speak in Tamil and Telugu?)”. The audience exploded in cheers and applause as she added with a smile, “I want to get to the maximum people”.
Here is the video:
Taapsee later tweeted, “Wow! In hindsight, it was actually a conversation on ‘fire’! Thank you @iffigoa and @maddymatters. My debut there will surely be a memorable one for a lot of us I guess. See you next year :).”
Not just that, Taapsee even slammed a Twitter user who wrote, “Kyuki Hindi elite nahi banate an (Because Hindi doesn’t make a person Elite).” Taapsee replied saying, “Elite bhasha nahi, soch banate hai(Language doesn’t make a person Elite, Vision does).”
